Boards Magazine [canada/world tradepress] 2000

Or read the article now online at BoardsOnline August issue, 2000. "It's a harsh audience for parties" says Åsk Wäppling.

David Bell of KesselsKramer, freelance art director Åsk Wäppling (the proprietress of ad-rag.com and commercial-archive.com) and Dirk Bouw of SWH met at London's School of Communications Arts and wound up working at Dutch agencies. An intellectual yet festive bunch, the three friends threw their first Cannes party four years ago for Dutch music maker Hans Brouwer of Massive Music and Amsterdam/London/Berlin's Condor Post Production and have made an annual tradition of it.


'How was Cannes?' - Dabitch reports from the south of France

In the middle of June ad people gather in Cannes from all over the planet. They go to see ads from all over the world, poster, print, TV and new media, all day every day of the week. They go to party all night every night of the week. They go to spend heavily from their expense accounts while networking.


Swedes bring home the gold. And so does Nike in the Cyberlions.

In Cannes it seems the Swedes are continuing to take over the world in their second Viking raid era. Course, this is only advertising we are talking about, and hopefully no villagers will get pillaged, but there must be something in the knäckerbröd over there to bring home this much gold per capita.


Sony's phony audience.

As Clay pointed out earlier, film studio's can get really creative when trying to get good quotes about their movies by inventing their own film critics.

They just topped themselves, by inventing their own audience as well.
I heard Pearl Harbour was crap...but this bad?


Towel boy attacks rum girl's bikini in outdoor Wisconsin melee.

Seems like only yesterday that the Captain Morgan dupliclaim was posted, and now the mustachioed rum campaign goes and makes the news, thanks in no small part to an overambitious terrycloth-wieldin' activist o' modesty. (more...)

"I guess they did not want to see her in a swimsuit, which I think is pretty outrageous." - Robyn Rowan, DeLite Outdoor Advertising

Room 101 - a random collection of advertising Quotes

This is the advertising quote collection that used to be on the front page and change to another random quote every time you revisited. I got bored with that setup. Besides, everybody is doing that these days. ;)


"I will have clients rather than people who just give me orders"
Francis Wayland Ayer-1848 1923

"How many times do I have to tell you guys? Media does not enter before strategy and idea!"
Åsk Wäppling

"The same amount of space that exists over your head exists under your feet"
Tia Wolfe

"To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research."

"Thou shalt speak softly and carry no stick, except lipstick"


If you can't do - then teach.

Apparently, there's soon a general election in the U.K., but the TBWA-breakaway that we spoke about here earlier are far too busy setting up their own agency.


Animal Planet gets a leg up on outdoor advertising.

Dabitch first reported back in January of Bonzo barking billboards usin' ultrasonic sounds to attract people's poochies. Well, only a few months later, along comes something just a wee bit stronger that wants to take the number one position...

Ahhhhhh... the winsome olfactory goodness of eu de canine peeapplied to posters in the UK. Is there any doubt that this inspired modus operandi will leave a mark in the advertising world!?

Urine for a treat by reading all about it here.
