Børsen - We are in Denmark's Financial Times

While playing the NameGame where Lunds was seeking a nice new moniker various tradepress took notice of the unusual way of going about it.
Børsen wrote: "The agency has started a name competition on the weblog Adland, found on the adress www.ad-rag.com , and which is one of the worlds largest and most visited advertising weblogs and cyber-"room" for advertising chats and industry gossip."
A little furter in they quote Susan Hjorlev Lund who says: "We don't think that our current name reflects all our skills and competence. We are an international agency with international clients and co-workers, so it's natural to us to announce this competition over the world wide web. We chose Adland because they have over 50.000 visitors a day."

Ad agency web sites reviewed

The Independent published Stefano Hatfield's reviews of 12 UK advertising agency web sites. The commentary includes "geek report" on usability, design, etc, "obligatory platitude", and "excruciating moment".

The agencies reviewed include:
JWT, AMV BBDO, RKCR/Y&R, Ogilvy&Mather, TBWA London, Saatchi & Saatchi, Euro RSCG, St Luke's, Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH), Clemmow Hornby Inge, McCann-Erickson, and Cake Media.

Here are a couple of the Obligatory Platitudes:
Ogilvy & Mather: "It's all about big ideas. Intelligent ideas. Ideas that spring from a deep understanding of consumer needs and behaviour."
Clemmow Hornby Inge: "The best way to get a big idea is to get a lot of ideas."
Euro RSCG: "The power of one".
St. Luke's: "The easiest way to lead people is to climb to the top of a hill. See what direction they are moving in already and then jump in front of them."

Overall, it looks like BBH's site was found to be the quickest, simplest, and easiest to understand, with the least amount of BS.

Also related, Mother London, BBDO, and Lowe Bull have recently redesigned their agency sites. There's a bit on the Lowe Bull redesign here.
