Saving Kittens for Internet Freedom

Internet kitties, a well-known phenomena with them being furry, funny, crazy and cute but what if a cat gets threatened with playful punishment? A joint venture between digital studios Wellington/Amsterdam based Resn, rehabstudio and Stinkdigital ran a 24 hour internet telethon event at www.savethekitten.com to save the kitten called Webster. The goal of the campaign was to raise awareness for the freedom of the internet and possible threats like the new legislation called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. What’s the story from a high up in the sky Finchie perspective?

The Power of Silly: A Hairy Lesson For Our Logical Brains

As I shaved off my one-year-old beard on Halloween night, I looked at my wife’s face through the mirror. She gave me a supportive look, silently acknowledging the forthcoming consequences for herself and the planet. November is here, and once again, her husband and hundreds of thousands of men around the world are growing their itchy, un-sexy mustaches to raise awareness for men’s health.

Your Own Time

Every day I am sent remarkable websites, apps and fun internet junk done by agency people. Useful stuff. Funny stuff. Dumb, but interesting stuff. And they weren’t done for brands. They were created out of fun, or passion, or pursuit of learning new skills.

For many of us, creating these types of projects seems pretty far-fetched. The day to day is filled with projects not dreamed up by us. They are interesting, challenging and fun. But it’s not necessarily the things you wish you could be working on.

Riot !n Paris Writes a Song for Ignacio

Ignacio Oreamuno and Brett McKenzie, IHAVEANIDEA’s O.G.s and now ADC leaders, took off this week for bratwursts and steins, and some digital marketing magic at the dmexco Digital Marketing Exposition and Conference in Cologne, Germany.

As part of the conference, NYC-based duo Riot !n Paris teamed up with dmexco to write a personal song about one lucky attendee of the festival, based solely on the attendee’s social media profiles.

Make Way for the Purple, Black and/or White

Here’s a never ending topic of discussion: Prince or Michael? So what could possibly be better than having them both? For our first beach party in Cannes this year, we at Sizzer Amsterdam did exactly that. We took the Prince x Michael theme and went all out. If you missed it, sorry to hear that! Here’s a short flashback to the night in our five favorite Prince and Michael Jackson videos. Make way for the Purple, the Black and/or the White.

A Brand New Lavarropas

I open the door to my house and there they are: two deliverymen from the household appliances store bringing in a brand new washing machine (what happened to my former one is a story in itself and I can talk about that some other time).

The first one to come in is obviously the boss (he’s too old to be reporting to the other guy). Actually, I will find out exactly how old he is because today is his birthday and that’s the reason for this article.

I Resolve to be More Resolute: Understanding Resolution

I sit not far from Client Relations here at iStock, and sometimes hear the tell-tale signs of a well-meaning, but somewhat disoriented iStock image purchaser: it’s the dreaded 72 dpi question. The conversation usually goes something like this…

Diary of a Copywriter: Small Barnyard Animal

When you work in advertising, it’s pretty cool to have a tattoo. Full sleeves are the norm, but a random graphic design on your inner arm is also acceptable. Like, a line. Or a square. Shit like that. Designers like that stuff.

We writer-y types, however, we like to break out of the mold. We choose foreign language tattoos. And then regret them many years later.

Meet Me Half Way — Day 10: Mission Accomplished

La Comunidad’s two braves say goodbye to the jungle and their new tribal friends. But they couldn’t leave without solving the most elusive water cooler mystery: who are the 10 hottest people in La Comunidad? Now they know, and you will too.

Meet Me Half Way — Day 9: The Amazon Lion

How many times have you caught yourself saying, “I could’ve done that better” and then actually gotten the chance to prove it? For Mosca and Chelsea, one time. Today, our two creatives attempted to remake “Clowns,” one of La Comunidad’s most awarded spots, using only talent and props found in the jungle. They did a pretty great job, but the creatives that wrote the original script complained, “It looks like it was made in the jungle!”
