    ---------- Best Party -------------------

    You'd think we'd say Pindakaas because they rocked that old Jugend building to the core and we'll give ten points for effort and ten more for the building alone, but alas, we had a grand time over at Nothing in the "Amsterdam After Dark" party-tour of agencies, a quiet get together with very nice people and a personal tour of that fantastic cardboard room by Michael Jansen.

    That cardboard smell is still there, making the room cozy in the way childhood memories of building little cardboard castles are cozy. A Russian designer who had been on placement there has added to the walls with his art, and the well chosen coffee-set sums up the "Making something out of Nothing" idea of the agency. The set is a collection of odd pieces that don't match, with a single new screenprinted graphic image on each, making a once odd set a complete set instead.

    Plus, there was puppies. You can't beat puppies.

    Here's our cameraphone-footage of the moment when they gave the painting away.
