AMV BBDO London has launched a new branding campaign for the economist, and with it they bring back the visual. And not just any visual,s they've gotten a hold of Paul Davis, Anthony Burrill and Design team Non Format (who did the "Balance" ad you see here) to lend a hand.
I love it, especially the "Balance" poster, my fave.
You know the old saying, the grass is always greener on the other other side of the fence?
Well, when you don't work in advertising, the other side is an ad agency. And when you do work in advertising, the other side is Hollywood. Now all you frustrated copywriters can get a chance to create your own FOX sit-com!
The New York Television Festival (NYTVF) has partnered with FOX to create a Comedy Script Contest.
With 100 days to go until the Beijing Olympics, Amnesty International today launched the first in a series of four hard-hitting animated films highlighting human rights abuses linked to the Chinese authorities' hosting of the Games, in particular the risks of peacefully protesting in China.
Amnesty is campaigning for Ye Guozhu, imprisoned and reportedly tortured with electro-shock batons after he protested at forced evictions in Beijing. Ye Guozhu's home and family restaurant had been bulldozed to make way for Olympics construction.
"Amnesty is not against the Games but we want people to know what else is happening in China - including the silencing of critics and peaceful protesters - and to join our campaign for urgent human rights reform," said Tim Hancock, UK campaigns director. "People who speak out about human rights in China are being persecuted and locked up ahead of the Olympics. Torture is commonplace. Right now we're demanding the release of Ye Guozhu, who was arrested and tortured just for protesting when his home was bulldozed to make way for Olympics venues. The Chinese authorities promised when bidding for the Olympics that hosting the Games would improve human rights. Rather than honour these promises, the government has cracked down on dissent more rigorously than before."
