Advertising Week kicks off in New York today, as does one of the most ambitious weeks in Adweek’s history.
Some of the most imaginative, colorful figures in advertising, art, film and beyond gathered in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood to talk about making things. Adweek was on hand to watch them swap ideas, work and play. Click below to view the Galleries:
Mother New York took the top honors at 2012's One Show last night, winning "Best of Show" for "Little Marina," the 25-foot-tall, Missoni-wearing, smartphone-waving doll that the agency created for New York Fashion Week to promote Target's Missoni line
There's no such thing as an uncool client. At least, that's what HUGE executive creative director Joe Stewart believes. "There's no such thing as a bad project," he said today at Creative Week's "Brooklyn's Finest Creative Roundtable.
The Art Directors Club has hired Ignacio Oreamuno, founder and president of advertising organization Ihaveanidea as its new executive director.
For Creative Week, GE and BBDO New York created a nifty holographic installation called "Throttle Up" that invites visitors to build a jet engine piece by piece. To promote it, Socialistic captured some super-slow-motion footage of well-known ad people taking some jet-engine-caliber wind to the face. The results are pretty amusing (see five videos after the jump), although cynics would say several of these people deserve a super-slo-mo slap to the face instead. See a few more videos at Throttle Up's Tumblr.
To celebrate Creative Week, a steady parade of thinkers and doers sounded off on the process of turning ideas into realities. We lured some of the speakers (and a few attendees) into our studio, to get their quickest visual takes on brainstorming—with courtesy protection against clouded thinking.
