As our ‘beloved’ Andy Hyatt is MIA today I’ve taken up the mantle of the weekly Digital Friday Mail. For those who have just joined (or have never received a ‘Friday Mail’), this is intended as a weekly digest of links and topics that have been of interest to the digital team this week. The [...]
I’ve received a few mails from the team this week with some interesting sites, which is fantastic, as it helps reinforce our view that good ideas can come from anywhere in the organisation. I’ve attached a link to a couple of those I thought might appeal to the collective sense of Fridayness. Then I received [...]
Just some random musings and sites today. Enjoy. A Adobe Museum of Digital Media. A cool and interesting idea where a museum dedicated to Digital Media is developed entirely online. You have to play around with it, as it’s a bit odd. If anything though, it will remain etched in my mind for moment of [...]
Usually writing a mail about innovation is simple this time of year, as our imaginations about the ‘next big thing’ are fuelled by the technical wizardry that is on display at the world technology fair (known as CeBIT). Unfortunately, this year sees a multitude of variations on the tablet theme, alongside numerous pontifications from the [...]
Four sites, all which caught my (or the team’s) eye: Thinking Space from the Economist – nice flash site which gives you access to the collective brains of prominent planners within the advertising world. Chrome Experiments (view in Chrome) – a selection of sites and games which are used to test what you can do [...]
It’s been a blistering start to the year in just about every quarter. Unless you happen to be a Liverpool fan. Anyway, as the UK economy slowly drags itself out of the mire of the past couple of years, we are seeing the rise of a lot more sites that draw on the power of [...]
The Nativity is such a compelling story for a number of reasons, but my favourite is how it challenges our preconceptions. Specifically our notion of status. A human-born deity with the power to change the world comes into being in a setting of abject poverty and humility. He is not a king, nor the son [...]
Earlier this week I came across an interview with Sir Martin Sorrell, where he was talking about the future of advertising. In it he says that content is king. He’s right, but I think that its more than this. Advertising isn’t just about content (rich content though it may be), it is now essential to [...]
I’ve talked about 360 degree panoramics before, and just love this. Shame about the ‘Yellow Bird’ branding area at the lower part of the panoramic, but it’s still pretty nice.
A recent BBC interview with Sir Martin Sorrell on changes in advertising. Content is king! It’s c.30mins long. Worth listening to.
