Thirty-five years ago, Richard Wilde launched the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Today, he still is still chair running the program with enthusiasm and unparalleled leadership, recruiting the top industry talent as instructors to maintain the college's reputation as one of the best of its kind. He is nothing less than a living icon in the world of graphic design and advertising. So when Director Benita Raphan (SVA alumna) approached SUSPECT CD Hoon Chong (also SVA alumunus), to handle the open for, "The Wilde Ones", a documentary tribute for Wilde's 40-year anniversary at the school, he readily accepted. Raphan quickly expanded the offer to include all post and effects for the film.
Mother, London have created an ad to "Bring the aviation industry back down to earth", and a site to go with it at planestupid.com. The ad shows polar bears falling from the sky in a skyscraper filled city, hitting buildings on the way down and crashing into large gas-guzzling chevy's on the street. Subtle. More than one person I've talked to over in the US immediately made the association with the falling man and the jumpers of WTC, due to the shots of falling corpses reflecting on skyscrapers carrying a strong visual similarity. The advert is only aired in UK cinema and online.
Your flight has an impact. Plane Stupid's new cinema ad, written and commissioned by creative agency Mother and made by production company Rattling Stick. Director Daniel Kleinman.
Went to the BNE exhibit last night at Mother NY's future office.
It was still under construction, but it was the perfect space for the party. Stella Artois on tap!
A few blocks away was Ogilvy. Why is everyone moving to Hell's Kitchen? Cheaper rent? If this keeps up, 11th Avenue might be the new Madison Avenue.
You'll have to give props to Quentin Tarantino for decking out in hakama, saying his lines in Japanese and choosing to do a cameo as Uncle Tara-chan in the quirkiest Japanese soap-opera ad campaign running as of late. The SoftBank ads feature a family where mom is your regular mom, but father is a Hokkaido-ken dog (real name Kaikun). Quentin isn't the first American celeb to shill softbank, Brad Pitt was starring as the sumo wrestler's humble assistant in an earlier campaign run. He's in good company with the White family, the daughter, "Me", is played by popular celebrity singer actress Aya Ueto, and the brother Oniisan is played by Brooklyn born american actor Dante Carver - he has is own youtube channel at sec2productions.
Quentin Tarantino guest stars in the White family kookyness, as Uncle Tara in full hakama and speaking Englapanese to boot. "Samurai spirit-a!" - but then his blond angry wife keeps calling and ruining all the fun.
SoftBank Mobile Corp "White" family, where the father, Otousan, is a white Hokkaido-ken dog. The daughter “Me” is played by Aya Ueto, the son Oniisan is played by Dante Carter. Otousan likes cake.
