• Sir Richard is Fighting a Human Virus with a Computer Virus

    / Comments (0)

    AIDS is losing media coverage because infection rates have dropped in most countries; but, the fight is far from over because multiple countries like Haiti still have AIDS as a major public health threat. So Sir Richard's Condom Company wanted to put AIDS back on the agenda by spreading the KORE message, with the help of Loducca, to fight AIDS in the same way that AIDS spreads: with a virus. A computer virus for the good.

    Local studio Westwerk started their business in 2005 specializing in Wordpress-based website design work and producing branding, print, and digital work. After a spout of success at their company, and driven by their love of design, they expanded their digital offering and continued to dabble in traditional design work. Now Westwerk just launched a really nicely done new agency site that positions them as a digital leaning design agency with an expertise in large scale WordPress builds while their portfolio showcases some of their great traditional work right alongside their well known digital pieces. Take a look at their portfolio, it certainly is worth a gander.

  • Our Favorite Holiday Campaign of the Season is from Harvey Nichols

    / Comments (1)

    Kudos to Daniel Fisher and Richard Brim of adam&eveDBB who managed to persuade Harvey Nichols to break through the holiday cheese clutter and subvert the spirit of the season with their "Sorry, I Spent It On Myself" range. It constitutes a series of throw away presents (think a bag of gravel or some toothpicks) with an explanatory apology that the giver had splurged their Christmas cash on the person who really matters at this time of year – themselves. There’s also a great ad by the agency and a video by James Day which lampoons saccharine festive ads by showcasing these mundane offerings over a sickly sweet Silent Night instrumental.
