Best Agency Christmas Piece So Far

Nice work for Christmas by AKQA.

Whilst this year's effort by W+K is an interactive Christmas card maker in their window (which is lovely), nothing beats last year's Christmas pudding bin bags, that combined usefulness and creativity.

Really Nice

Lovely way to show some of the most interesting data around.


This guy should be a copywriter. Whatever he was on, he still managed to ride his BMX and come up with those lines.

We applaud you.

Viral Heaven

A list of the year's 'Top 10 Virals' has been published by the guardian. We've seen nine out of the ten, which may mean we spend a bit too much time on the web. Either way, it's mostly agreed that these are virals, bar the Nike "Fate" ad which resembles a TV ad more than it does a viral, especially as it was shot by David Fincher. To us, virals are more like the Wassup 2008 video, which uses an ad we all know in a new clever way.

Make The Can Fist

Awesome Campaign for Tango, saving the drink from going to the dogs in its fight against those smoothie drinkers. The video is awesome and we like the stencils you can download and spray yourself. You can also watch all the original, old-school ads and look at how Tango is doing on the 'Tangometer.'

May just go down the shops and demand a can of Tango with my Tango fist now.

Warm Fuzzy Data

I went to the Science museum over the weekend to play around with all the fun interactive stuff in the 'launchpad.' Also checked out The Listening Post which we wrote a small piece on in Contagious Magazine during the summer. Thought it a good idea to check it out again, as it's truly inspiring and leaves you wanting to know a lot more.

The Listening Post works by filtering words written in chat rooms across the web, and producing these on screens in real time. It's created by Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin, two very clever guys. We hope you manage to check it out before the exhibition closes as our words cannot do it justice.

We got thinking about what else has been produced since the Listening Post and discovered a piece of work by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar, called We Feel Fine. It works in a similar way and is just as visually impressive.

Its nice to see work that inspires.

On days when you feel down or like your not sure about things in life, we suggest you watch this. Sure made us feel more positive and that humans can be nice.

Death Match 2 - Can you handle the payne

Plans are already afoot with the next Death Match fundraiser for our degree show. It should be back in February but we're letting everyone know early to avoid disappointment. Any Farnham based readers can join the Facebook group here. Should be even better this time but, we have a lot of work to get out the way first.

This time the tournament is titled after the raining champion, lets hope it spurs him on to defend his crown.
