-The original folding phone, the Motorola razr+ 2023, is back to re-stake its claim in the foldable space with a new campaign by creative studio Los York. “Saltare in Giro” is a choreographed dance film featuring the iconic House of Pain track “Jump Around” in Italian. The campaign, titled #flipthescript, introduces an entirely new razr with a sleek design in the Pantone Color of the Year 2023, Viva Magenta. Set afterhours in an international airport, the film features a wildly creative airport employee with a penchant for fashion reimagining a collection of lost luggage.

-The Wyoming Department of Health is bearded up for safety in a new campaign by Sukle Advertising & Design, in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Health. In the second least vaccinated state in the country, and with Covid-19 decreasing adoption rates for other vaccines in Wyoming and across the country, the team needed to find a way to convince people that getting vaccinated is important. It set its sights on the old West, when even a simple shave could lead to a tetanus death.
