Some stuff to end the week

So if your here reading this it means you are wasting some time on a friday afternoon. It's ok, i wasted a bit of time putting this together.

Here's some more interesting stuff we found this week.

Check out this TV spot for Jim Bean featuring William Dafoe. Nicely shot and with a slick VO.

Now check out Howard Kingsnorth. A photographer who has some serious landscape skillz. Yes, i meant to spell skills with a Z. Just check out the photo below.

Finally see which side of you is the better side. Echoism takes the left and right side of your face and puts them both together. It's an experiment from the artist Julian Wolkenstein.

Everyone who has done it has their photo added to this virtual galleries, which i am sure the artist will use for something.

The virtual gallery

Here's what the artist says...

There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “attractive “.

If you are made symmetrical, do you consider yourself more beautiful, less so, or is it just weird? Or is it you at all? Do you have a best side? What is to be said of left and right brain dominance?

This is a series of photographic portraits completed in 2010. The subjects were specifically cast for their individual facial features. They were photographed front to camera and in the same position. They were asked not to express emotions or character.

This initial study focusing on facial symmetry, is part of a larger piece revolving around facial features, facial proportions and facial symmetry.

An accompanying website and continuing project titled "Echoism" is at

The term Echoism relates to fascial symmetry in its physiognomical sense.

A million facebook likes

Seems brands want to say thank you for likes on facebook.

What always blows my mind is the money clients pay for an agency to set up a facebook page.

Interesting photography

Most photographers use digital manipulation to tidy up a shot. Change the levels etc. But this guy does everything in camera still. Check out the way he uses colour. Simple but effective.

Kanye West Power

Check out Kanye West's new spot for his single Power. It's done by the Artist Marco Brambilla, and i have to say, it's quite stunning.

It's concept is inspired by the paintings of Michaelangelo. The nice twist is that everything has some slight movement to it. A painting for the digital generation if you will.

From the looks of things Kanye is beginning to believe that he's god.

One thing at a time Kanye.

This is the clean version with the models all clothed. Go here to see all the models naked. But only if you want to.

Too good not to post

Nothing feels forced (pardon the pun) in this TV spot for VW. This could be a comedy sketch that happens to feature a VW.

Creative Directors to try and work with

We had the pleasure of working with two Creative Directors last year who have really inspired us.

Alex Grieves (CW) and Adrian Rossi (AD) have done some truly amazing work. And it's work that you actually remember!

They always start with insight and simple ideas. Then they execute them brilliantly.

If we make one of these type of ads in our career we'll be happy. Take a look a look at some of their best work.

Alex said that this script went from a page long to a simple sentence. Something like... We open on an island and millions of women are running at a man spraying Lynx.

He wrote it a lot better than that obviously.

Audi - Rhythm of lines.

A great cinema ad that really hits home. I won't spoil it.

They also did these posters that have photography from Nadeev Kandar!

This has to be one of the most talked about ads of the beginning of the millennium. Everyone should remember this.
