Win an ADC Cube before the End of the World

This year's Art Director Club's Call for Entries poster addresses the turbulence of our era and where we seem to be heading, as well as the desire by those in the industry to win a Cube. "The ADC Cube is the award that every creative wants to win at least once before they die," says TBWAChiatDay co-creative director Ian Reichenthal, who guided the effort along with co-CD Scott Vitrone. "And the clock is ticking."

"There were lots of disasters and apocalyptic trends that deserved mentioning," Reichenthal adds, "but we scaled it down to our favorite 20 or so. Our choices were based on which ones lent themselves to being illustrated in an interesting way."

The TBWAChiatDay creative team that worked on the assignment reports that, as they researched the history of Armageddon, they turned to medieval woodcuts for inspiration and received a "sign" that they were pointed in the right direction. "In one we saw what looked like the Art Directors Club logo," explains art director Matt Sorrell. "We thought, is this a message?" (Actually, the original logo of the Art Directors Club was inspired by Albrecht Dürer's signature initials. A German Renaissance artist, Dürer is known for his engravings, particularly his Apocalypse series, which dates to the late 1400s. )

Battle Of the Ad Blogs

These were the categories last year - if you think it's lacking you should suggest another category, describe it and motivate why. It's quite difficult to narrow all these different voices down to a specific category! (more inside)

Larger than life "viral" spots - turns out to be a competition

Now that Bob Barrie - former Art Director at Fallon - is seen showing a cameraman who's boss, we finally have an explanation for those strange virals where Jeff Kling caresses his pencil.

Turns out it's all a competition, it's touting the "Larger Than Life cinema advertising contest" where ad creatives have the opportunity to submit an original 60 second cinema advertising spot, and have their work shot by RSA and run on National CineMedia's theatre network in AMC, Cinemark and Regal Entertainment Group Theatres nationwide.
By nationwide we mean "The United States" and by creatives we mean anyone over 18 residing in the United states who are are employed at a media, advertising or
creative agency. Everyone else can say a collective "meh" now. ;)

See print call for entries inside.
