The Comic Sans Defenders deface logotypes

Shit Art Directors say to Comic Sans: OW! My Eyes!

Well, the Comic Sans project hope to change that. By re-doing famous and easily recognisable logotypes using only the right pantone and Comic sans, they hope you might warm up to the wonky face.

WE ARE THE COMIC SANS DEFENDERS. WE FEAR NO FONTS AND WE WILL MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD COMIC SANS.
BECAUSE HELVETICA IS SOOO 2011

It really just a question of time before we have the Comic Sans movie. It'll be a horror film, of course. And yes, it's enterily possible thet the comic sans defenders are taking the ironic piss, which is so 90s by the way.

Happy holidays from Organic, Droga5 and the angry designers tired of making Holiday cards.

This year, the ad agency Xmas cards are a little nut. The one where you'll see the most naked man leg is the innocent-sounding Ugly sweater from Organic, where everyone at Organic pose in their ugliest holiday sweater. And nothing else. Oh dear. Thank you for the pixels.

The Droga5 christmas card is more of a ... press release. Of course, this made me laugh out loud. so points guys. Well played.

Droga5 today announced its selection of McGarryBowen as the advertising agency of record for its holiday card business. The hard-fought win caps a stellar growth year for Dentsu-owned McGarryBowen. The agency will handle lead creative duties for the Droga5 holiday card account.

Have you been naughty or nice? Your Santaclout score can tell you which list you are on.

Sometime last week, @Santaclout appeared and started tweeting directly to anyone and everyone who works in advertising. Soon after, I went on a "no fuck given" meme run - and as you can see, my Santaclout score is probably the naughtiest ever. (see recent twitter images or my FB page).

Yeay! I win at being the worst! Santa knows I'm naughty, which means he'll pay me a visit - you know santa is so jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live, right?

Everyone gets a meme

No sooner had the Jr Art Director meme made the rounds through the worlds ad agencies, when the Creative Director meme fired up. Seems everyone that isn't at #Eurobest or tied down currently working on an Easter Sale of peeps brief is wasting billable hours smirking and making sarcastic lines for these memes.

Siri - and shit that Siri says.

Siri is seemingly the perfect mate. She knows where to hide a body, who her daddy is and has clever comebacks to marriage proposals. Day-m girl, I want to be your best friend. See shit Siri says for more hilarity.

OH about the TBWA\Chiat\Day "Iconic" pledge

Overheard about the TBWA\Chiat\Day"Iconic ad pledge" seen at agencyspy, copyranter and in a longer nincompoop post at LaLi.

....I thought I already signed one of these when I agreed to come work here...?

*golf-applause*. Well played, anonymous TBWA\Chiat\Day person.

Flasher exposes himself at supermarket.... named "Willy's"

I'm sorry, this has nothing to do with advertising really, except to say one should choose brand names wisely as some don't export well, like poo tofu sticks.

There's been a recent spat of flashers in the southern city of Lund in Sweden, with men exposing themselves all over the place. Sydsvenskan has been reporting on the issue. This guy must have a warped sense of humor as he chose to show off his willy.... at Willy's.

The pun begged me to post this. I'm so sorry.

Lets play London Advertising Monopoly!

I sense a bit of bitterness here....... ;)

Check out what's tweeted to @admonopoly - there are some gems like:

Poking fun at the riots and British Tourism ads (now pulled off air due to riots)

The British Tourism adding "They are not appropriate at this time". No kidding! The ads were actually running in BBC iPlayer programmes overseas, and likely appeared more than once coupled with BBC coverage of the riots.

It was of course bound to happen then, that someone decided to start mocking the British Tourism ads, with this parody. Visit Britain! Bring home a flat screen telly!

A look inside of Kittywood Studios - where cat videos are born

If you don't work in advertising or post in any way, you'll still find this amusing, If you do, you might laugh even harder.

"Sometimes we do full character creation, like OMG cat, which believe it or not, started out as an animation test by one of our interns. We didn't end up hiring him."
