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.
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.)
Come Halloween, leave hipster Disney princesses to the amateurs. Today in conceptual costuming, we give you women dressed as browsers. Brought to you by photographer Viktorija Pashuta. No, we don’t know why Opera is spelled like that.

You know what a pain it is to eliminate the background in all of those product catalog shots? This is the stuff that design interns know all too well, and StyleShoots is here to solve that problem.
The device pictured above allows photographers to shoot product void of any background at all - eliminating hours and hours of tedious Photoshop work later. Which should leave plenty of time for interns to do more important things, like getting coffee.
A side by side comparison of two Chicago papers - one with a real photographer, and one without. Proof that reporters should be reporting, and photographers should be shooting.
Behind the scenes coverage of the campaign is now sometimes more interesting than the campaign itself. And increasingly, it’s a staple of the content that’s produced in conjunction with any primary content.
In some instances, it tells a richer, more interesting story than the original photograph/commercial/ad could have told on its own. And it should be something that every marketer ads to the production plan of every production on their roster.
Proof: The Freakshow poster. Interesting and beautiful photography for sure, but it doesn’t really produce any interesting engagement. Even the simplest, low-brow 2 minute production tells a more interesting story, while answering the question “how did they shoot that?”
Bjorn Borg wants you to have the most unforgettable night of your life, and of course such a night deserves to be documented.
In a tribute/celebration/open call to nightlife photographers, Unforgettable Night unleashes some of the world’s most talented photographers on the nightclubs, parties, and places where action happen.

Phhhoto is a booth that you need to install at your next event. It’s not just a photo booth - but a booth that takes animated GIFs.
We got this now because we didn’t have it during the original GIF wave, when we deserved it. Use it wisely.
When you woke up today, you had no idea that your day would be graced with such internet awesomeness. And yet Lettuce Beard Bologna Cheese man does not disappoint.
He’s here to serve you tasty deli treats however you like them. Bon appetit.
Want to really light things up tonight? Shoot a photo with your partner under the rain of sparks and fire.
It sounds complicated - and it is, in comparison to that “selfie” style of shooting that you may be used to, but Photojojo tells you everything you need to know to really spark things up with your lover.
Don’t burn down the house.
It’s Friday, you’ve worked hard all week, and you deserve this. Pictures of hipsters taking pictures of food. That’s why Tumblr is here, people.
Photographer/artist/perform Li Wei stages complex scenes that place him and his friends in impossible positions. Sure, there’s a little Photoshop here - but not in the way that you expect.
Li uses cranes, wires and other tricks to actually float, fly and place people in the most uncomfortable, un-natural positions. And then fun ensues.
Everyone wants to be a rock star. And famous athletes are no different. ESPN Magazine picked a handful of famous athletes and talked them into re-creating some of the music industry’s most legendary album covers.
Motocross racer James Stewart appears as Rick James, above - and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. If It’s Hip It’s Here has the full montage, along with behind the scenes shots, and side by side comparisons. Awesome.
