Name a brand or media channel and Bill Green’s probably worked on and in it. An art director by trade, he’s focused on an overall holistic approach to brand madness that merges the worlds of traditional, digital and social – whatever it takes.
Having worked previously with Darryl and Humongo and current AdVerve podcast partner with Angela, he’s currently doing creative strategy and pitch development with BFG in Hilton Head. The ad blog Make The Logo Bigger is about his experiences in the world of advertising and beyond.
Angela Natividad is a strategist, copywriter and journalist based in Paris. She writes MarketingProfs’ #SocialSkim, is a frequent guest on marketing podcast The Beancast, and co-hosts AdVerve the podcast. Most of her secret thoughts are on her blog, Live and Uncensored.
Darryl Ohrt is a former punk rocker, and Executive Creative Director at Carrot Creative, in NYC. In addition to his posts here, he also writes for Advertising Age’s Small Agency Diary, as the voice of the small guy in a big, big world.
After founding the legendary agency Humongo, he sold out to the man, left the entrepreneurial life and joined Carrot. Now he’s the self proclaimed Prime Minister of Awesome, and he’s tweeting, blogging, and exploring the internets as if it matters. He knows just enough to be dangerous, and is always ready for action.
It’s oil painting meets Monty Python. The Elegant Gentleman’s guide to Knife Fighting is an Australian sketch show that made a bunch of animated bumpers of classic works of art. You need to like these because we do. (Via Nerdcore.)
Comedian Michael Che tackles gentrification in this epic vid of how it’s affecting his neighbours in the Lower East Side.
Three words: WATER BRAND PREFERENCES!
Because not all retweets are positive endorsements. (But we’re sure these will still be positively counted in engagement calculations the world over!)
How often do we post Kickstarter projects? Only if they’re something worth ranting about. Pixelstick is trying to redefine the time-honored practice of painting with light and needs your help. Enjoy, then donate so they can reach their funding goal. (Via.)
Really cool stuff here from agency Red Urban. For client Volkswagen, the agency commissioned Canadian band Walk Off the Earth to transform their latest single into a marketing tool for the newest three models of Beetle.
In the interactive music video above, the band bangs out “Gang of Rhythm” in three different music styles: playful, soulful or powerful. The music somehow manages to stay in sync when you jump from one style to the other, even as the styles and the model of Beetle totally change.
Visit Vogue.co.uk and tap the following sequence: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. What ho! A velociraptor with a fancy chapeau appears on-site! Keep tapping A for more velociraptors with different hats.
Explanatory video here:
Church Mag ponders whether it’s a hack, but it seems a little too clean, plus it hasn’t been taken down yet so not likely. As for why they’d do it if it isn’t…?
Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. It’s velociraptors in hats.

For the launch of Teen Wolf Season 3, the agency hacked Twitter’s code to create claw marks in tweets.
See MTV’s pressie on the campaign. Disclosure: Darewin’s one of our clients. So this post is in part to share something cool they did, but also in part to high-five a very cool and hard-working team.
Cole Haan celebrates the year of its birth, 1928, with artists born on (or, in the case of China Machado, around) 1928. Check out the campaign and enjoy it; even if you don’t like the brand, you’ll find an icon to relate to.
Above you’ll find a video of Maya Angelou. We hope we’re that cool when we’re that old.
