  • Sixty Second of Gary Busey Talking to Stuff

    / Comments (0)

    To market the Amazon Fire TV ad agency Wongdoody showcased Gary Busey talking to random objects until he finds the one that responds back to him. The entire spot is focused on Amazon's Fire ability to understand and use voice commands. We think its just weird enough to be memorable and hopefully it will sell some tech too.

    / Comments (0)

    The aptly named "New Lab" is a new "retail design & innovation" agency that is setting up shop in downtown Minneapolis. Not only will they be an individual shop; but, they also will be serving as the creative portion in a strategic partnership with the Creative Partners Group vendor rep firm and Deep Dive category management. The goal of their shop is to "harness the power of new."

    "New brands and brand experiences, new merchandising concepts, new products and product categories, and new approaches to leveraging technology to drive consumer engagement and business growth. We believe that the earlier New is introduced to a project or an organization, the greater impact it will have on effectiveness and efficiency. To make this possible we partner with clients to understand their businesses and processes, we identify opportunities and whitespace both internally and at retail, and develop comprehensive concepts and solutions." Check them out.

  • KNOCK's Nice Invite Design for the Children's Theatre Company Ball

    / Comments (0)

    The Children’s Theatre Company holds an annual fundraising gala with two phases: the formal Curtain Call Ball followed by the Backstage Bash. To tackle this unique project, they hired on KNOCK to develop distinct yet complementary themes for the event. Working with the concept of Cinderella they made a "Head Over Glass Heels" theme with ornate pouf hairstyles from 18th-century royalty for the Curtain Call Ball. They followed that with a grittier, wilder nature of a "Happily Every Afterparty" theme for the Backstage Bash. Typography and a little mouse ensured consistency between the two invitations, while pumped-up color was meant to distinguish the bolder, younger Bash from the formal Ball. Nice.
