BBDO Duesseldorf gets flirty for Braun

BBDO Duesseldorf were presented with the challenge to create awareness for Silk-epil epilators from Braun. Their solution was the tie helium filled balloons to a model's skirt so there would be nothing to look at but her legs (and knickers). Of course, the model drew attention wherever she went and generated an in-store traffic increase around 25%. (video inside).

The Math of Viral by Noah Brier, via if.psfk.com.

One of the creatives at DraftFCB (and adgrunt) sent in this viral spot for Bullseye BBQ Sauce. He says, "My partner and I shot it with a bolex and the drummer is a friend of ours who drummed the track as it played." Their friend, David Suycott, is the drummer from the indie rock band Stabbing Westward, who rocks the kettles with his brushsticks and barbeque sauce.

THE WORST LOGO IS THE NEW LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS.

A parting shot from the crony Blairite lickspittle machine, this piece of shit, was from none other than Wolff Olins, normally an OK design house, but on record ON TELEVISION, (pre 1982) for producing a logo for the pencil giant, Staedtler of Germany- of not being reduceable. Fine when it was 12 metres high and on a building, but utterly unreadable and too small when it was actually on a PENCIL! duhhh!
Now this dog's dinner was actualy awarded without a PITCH!
It cost £400,000. That's $800,000 in today's money, and it sucks!
The word London is an afterthought, and is in a reluctant lower case.

Phallic logo's revisited

There are a few more gems to be added to the phallic logo collection.

First up, the aptly named "modern tvätt", I'm not sure if this logo insunuates that they only wash soiled sheets or not. But it sure is ..eh..modern.
