Many moons ago, when the Olympics were held in Nagano, I worked at BBDO and spotted one of those local tradepress competitions where you had to take one of your agencies clients and mesh it with a poster promoting the Nagano Olympics. I thought I was pretty clever when I took the Pepsi logo, flipped it upside down and placed it in the middle of a white "flag" (poster) with a wee snowboarding dude sliding down the white line. The account exec didn't though, and I got chewed out for messing with the clients logo. This little whine-fest is simply to remind y'all that when you do mess with the logo, you must do it sexay-as-hell - like this award winning BBDO Pepsi campaign here (complete with snowboarders!). That's when you win awards baybeh.

94 entries from 25 companies in the United States have been chosen as Gold and Silver Statue winners in the mediums of Design, Digital Media, Integrated Media, Package Design, Poster & Outdoor, Print, Radio and Television/Cinema for the 2007 London International Awards at the Hippodrome this evening. Now in its 22nd year, the London International Awards honours excellence in Advertising, Design and Digital Media.
One U.S. entry captured the Grand Prize Statue for Print. Saatchi & Saatchi, New York won the Grand Prize with its Print ads, “20th Century,” “Life,” “2/23/07.” Only six Grand Prizes were awarded at the ceremony, chosen from a pool of 17,660 submissions.
18 entries from the U.S. reached Finalist status. Of the 17,660 total submissions from 81 countries, only six percent (6%) reached Finalist status. From that elite group, 1.4% attained Silver status and only 0.5% were awarded Gold Statues. The vast number of submissions reflects the prestige and explosive growth of the London International Awards since its inception in 1986 when 2,600 submissions were considered.
“It is clear that the USA continues to produce some very sophisticated work that is impacting the advertising industry as a whole,” said Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards. "As an organization devoted to acknowledging creative endeavors, we feel privileged to highlight the tremendous talent that is consistently showcased by the United States."

On October 17, 2007, the most luminous names in advertising gathered at a black tie gala at The Metropolitan Club in New York City to witness the induction of three of advertising’s greatest legends—Phil Dusenberry, Tim Delaney and the late Paul Rand (1914 – 1996), into The One Club’s Creative Hall of Fame. As former Creative Hall of Fame inductee and 2007 Hall of Fame Chairman David Abbott observed, being inducted into the Creative Hall of Fame is a “pat on the back from those who really knew.”

Following are quotes from the evening:
“I was fortunate to be married to a fellow creative. I could wake up in the middle of the night with an idea and immediately be able to get a professional opinion. Gave new meaning to “being rejected in bed.”
--Phil Dusenberry, on how his marriage helped bolster his career
“It’s much better being inducted than being indicted.”
--Phil Dusenberry, Former Chairman BBDO North America and 2007 Inductee into the Creative Hall of Fame
“The thing he liked the most was the thing he liked the least—not knowing what would happen from one minute to the next.”
-- Allen Rosenshine, Chairman of BBDO Worldwide, on Phil Dusenberry’s feelings about the ad industry
“We had an unlimited budget, but we somehow managed to exceed it.”
-- Phil Dusenberry, on making blockbuster commercials for clients like Pepsi and GE at the height of his career at BBDO
“I’ve never had my name in a New York Times crossword puzzle, so go f*#@ yourself!
-- George Lois, legendary ad man and former Hall of Fame inductee, on multi-award-winning designer Paul Rand’s reaction to seeing George’s name in a crossword puzzle
In addition, as part of its induction of the legendary Paul Rand into its Creative Hall of Fame, The One Club for Art & Copy turned to Imaginary Forces to create a video introduction of the design icon for its black tie gala. The resulting four-minute film captures the seminal role Rand played in design and design thinking, using an animated mix of his logos and layouts set to music, along with the words of the master himself.

Magazine Publishers of America (MPA) is reinventing one of its most notable programs--the Kelly Awards--as a virtual awards show presented exclusively online.
The winners of the 26th Annual Kelly Awards, which award creative excellence and effectiveness using magazines, will be announced online beginning Wednesday, June 13. Created with Visual Mercenary of New York, New York, the microsite will feature an animated host, interactive gallery, commentary from judges and finalists, and even an exclusive after-party--complete with bouncer. Finalists for this year's Kelly Awards have been announced and are listed below the fold.
"For more than a quarter of century the Kelly Awards have stood for creativity and we feel that the new online event will reflect the originality, flair and cleverness that is characteristic of great magazine advertising," said Ellen Oppenheim, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of the MPA. "Additionally, because we empathize with everyone's busy schedules, we decided to show appreciation for the industry's work while giving attendees an entertaining and time-saving way to share in the celebration of the Kelly Awards. An inventive digital platform enables us to reach an even broader audience."
The folks at ihaveanidea.org are at it again with their 5th annual portfolio night. This time they're going global with 26 cities participating on the same night, May 3rd. To help promote the event, they've reincarnated Burn Back (read: Bernbach) as a metal band with their song "Make The Logo Bigger". Listen to the tune below.
The One Club tapped the creative minds at Cliff Freeman & Partners to come up with a campaign alerting the adgrunts of the world to their upcoming show May 9-11. The result: a multi-media campaign that warns any potential no-shows that "There's No Excuse for Missing the One Show."
A mock novelty catalogue that reads like a page from The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, it's supported by an online store (www.oneclub.org/noxcuse), 1-888 number (1-888-NOXCUSE) and "infomercial" spots peddling such disaster-relief/prevention items as radiation suits, condoms, bolt cutters and clean urine samples.
