Getty Images wants you to Interact 10 Ways:


Got Neon?

The neon known as the Artkraft Strauss Collection - - is being auctioned at Freeman's auction house if you're looking for some ad icon neon to spice up your avant garde loft with that authentic 80's commercial touch.


Butterick Home Catalog Issue has cover issues....

The Panopticist has spotted the gem that is Butterick's winter 2005 cover. Somewhere a disgruntled designer is lauging an evil laugh for getting away with this, I'm sure. Is this revenge for all those "logo bigger" requests? Hmmm?


Create a whaling tune to stop whaling

IFAW's Stop Whaling campaign wants to you to help stop whaling by participating in the Whale Song Remix Contest. That's right. Remix those whale songs and a celebrity panel will select 10 winners.


Adland Memes: Choirs

In addition to Badland's ads of synchronized ideas, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at advertising memes. They do seem to come in groups. Most recently- within the last few months, Choirs seem to be a hot commodity in the idea factories of ad agencies around the globe.

It's game time for Footballers Wives

To promote the BBC America's Footballers Wives, Templar Studios created an online sim-like game, Everyone Plays Dirty, where the wives get drunk, the footie stars take steroids and you have to help keep them happy, with fame or fortune, to win games. Check it out here or click on the image below.


Save the 76 ball!

Oh Noes! The Los Angeles Times reports that the 76 ball logo is being 86ed. The round orange cult icon can't die without a fight say - and I agree. I've loved that thing since I was a kid and even have it here as a choice among the user avatars. Don't let the 76 ball join the other classics in Logo R.I.P..
Save the !


Spammer 1 - Blue Security 0

frogSad news today in the seedy underbelly of the advertising business - I know you don't like it folks but you have to admit that spam is the ugly acnescarred bucktoothed cowlegged smelly ADD suffering stepchild of advertising who spits on the table and brings shame on the family. Name "advertising" and people think "spam!". It's like when you mention Hilton these days, nobody thinks of a posh hotel chain, but of nightvision and skank-daughter Paris performing robotic fellatio - I keep wondering when the Hilton hotel chain has to get a new name and an image elevating ad campaign. Call me.

Blue Security had a new idea to fight spam, all their customers would send opt-out emails (automagically) simultaneously to spammers for every spam received. Not only would the spammers on US Soil have to comply according to the can-spam act, but also getting half a million opt-outs for every spam you sent would be quite the headache. If you sent it from your own servers and adresses that is. Well, last week spammers attacked Blue Frog security and DDoS:ed them off the web. After all that downtime and no end in sight, Blue Frog waves the white flag and have announced that they are quitting the spam fighting game. On their way down, they dragged Six Apart blogs with them. Oops. (more inside)


The Juan Show - one show antidote.

Ok, if you are a little sick of the One show, The juan is the antidote. See for some honest ad judging done by a guy who's lips never touched a darn latte. He's so darn cool his tattoo switches arms randomly throughout the site.

Most fun can be had on the site trying "shift+(any letter)" to find little easter eggs messages to creative hot shots like Alex, Eric and Mark. Try their first letter+shift and see what Juan says to them, and see if you can find more messages.
