Memac Ogilvy in Dubia has produced an impressive series of banners for Panodil that almost makes you wish you had a headache. Really good idea and nice execution as well. Respect.

Carts of Darkness is a great hour long documentary about a small group of homeless people in Vancouver, Canada.

More information about the film can be found at the director Murray Siple’s website.

The Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing wants to raise awareness for the dangers of driving under influence. Drivers should be approached as directly as possible but in a rather entertaining than shocking way. The long-term goal is to reduce the number of alchohol provoked accidents in Germany. A fleet of Volkswagen New Beetle is tuned with special car parts to become talk of the town: Wheel caps that looks like eyeballs play with the New Beetle’s organic forms and turn it’s silhouette into a human’s face with drunkenly revolving eyes. The promotional cars were used mainly at public events with a high con-sume of alcoholic drinks. They made people curious for the ministry’s information material handed out on these occasions. The promotion caused quite a sensation in the media. The national press reported on the events and even more important on the ministry’s information campaign. As a direct result the ministry noticed an increased demand for their information literature about driving safety.

Burton has for many reasons always been a company that I admire highly and being that I think about the values and the entrepreneurial spirit of Plant quite a bit, I found these (Burton sponsored) videos from VBS.tv pretty inspirational.
