D&AD Creative Search demo video

D&AD Creative Search demo video

Four students launches D&AD Creative Search as a tool for other students during the D&AD Students Award 2010.
The Internet has a huge role in the everyday life of creatives. We use services such as Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, blogs and news sites are something that we use everyday.
It’s very easy to become overwhelmed with information when we perform a simple search on a new subject. This demands more mental activity than necessary in order to sort the results.
D&AD Creative Search sifts through results from the major services we all have daily contact with. You get a simple, flexible, and structured overview of your search.
The results can provide new angles as you see the subject yield images, texts, films and music in the same place.

Volkswagen / Rolighetsteorin / The Fun theory - Piano - (2009) 1:47 (Sweden)

In this episode of science project as advertising, Volkswagen turned the stairs at Odenplan subway station in to a piano stairs, which emits notes as you step on it. Suddenly it becomes a lot more fun than the old escalator and people used the stairs more often.

http://www.rolighetsteorin.se/en/ Is a site launched by DDB Stockholm for Volkswagen. The idea is that something that is made fun to do, is the easiest way to change people’s behavior for the better.

You know who else has a stair-piano? The Boston Science Museum.

CBS - CSI Trailer / Carousel - (2009) : (USA)

No, it's not directed by Adam Berg, it's not Carousel, it's not a Titanium winner. But it looks like it was very inspired by them, and to top it off, it's aggravating my CSI addiction. So I guess it works.

WWF - 911 vs Tsunami TV commercial - (2009) 1:30 (Brazil)

WWF - 911 vs Tsunami TV commercial - (2009) 1:30 (Brazil)

Before you get your knickers in a twist, you should read all the updates in the DM9DDB Brazil 911 / Tsunami ad post - after that you may proceed. Here's the easter egg, a commercial that went with the One Show merit awarded WWF poster. The line makes a little more sense here in the TV ad, so I think the disconnect that I got from the poster was their original line being lost in translation.

Smart car - Suicide/ Lowest Co2 Emission -(2009)

Radio Shack - Phonelandia - (2009) :30 (USA)

Hey, listen up Shack. Just because you have a cool new nickname doesn't mean you'll get a pass for failing geography. You're talking about "the population of Scandinavia" while playing the Swedish bands Discocrew super annoying summer hit Husvagn, yet you show off alps and people (well, phones) in traditional alpine dress, playing alphorn. That's Switzerland, fool.

(The Swiss/Swedish confusion happens so often in the states, methinks they're doing it as a long standing joke.)
