  • With all this tech about, is the big idea 'no idea'? Aussie CDs discuss. *May contain irony.

    / Comments (1)

    Are we thinking stuff through too much? What if we just chucked a load of tech together and let the public pick the bones out of it. And besides, there's just no room for an idea in amongst the live-streaming 3D-printed QR codes being delivered by a quad-copter.

    Starring a galaxy of creative stars from Down Under, this is of course a spoof that sets the stage for the Creative Fuel event in Sydnay at the end of July.

    The point is valid though. Increasingly tech can come first and the idea a distant second - if at all. It's a watchout for everyone: yes, technology can augment an idea but not replace it. Ideally it's invisible, working bits magic behind the scenes, letting the big thought land without interference or hoop-jumping.

  • Bank Uses Creative to Help Unemployed

    / Comments (1)

    Fifth Third Bank temporarily tossed its checking and mortgage ads wondering: Can our advertising, instead, help the long-term unemployed find jobs—including the 47% of Americans who have given up. "Reemployment," a campaign created by Leo Burnett showcases three actual job seekers and engages the public to share their stories to help them get hired.

    The campaign utilizes seeded video and pre-roll as well as flash and rich media banners across high profile websites, networks, and social media to get the word out.

    Advertising that makes a difference in a person's life is something we can all get behind.
