The app is inspired by Tinder and allows the marketeer, who’s not familiar enough with the agency landscape, to get acquainted with different agencies that match his/her specific assignment.

We’re on a boat

This video explains the app ‘We’re on a boat,’ created by Design studio Little Nice Things. It taps into the trend of shared ownership and seems perfect for Amsterdam; share your boat with others and get rewarded.

Explicit Tours

Especially for the Museum Night, this Saturday, Achtung! developed an app with which you can look at the Malevich exhibition in the Stedelijk with some layman commentary of Dutch celebs.

Ride Manifesto

To be honest, the first thing we thought after seeing this lenghty 1:45 minute film was; much ado about nothing. We’re talking about an app here! But no, the Scorpio Ride is a “motorcycle connectivity platform” that will set you back at least $199. Though we’re not really convinced that it does much more than GPS tracking and… More.

Blue Efficiency on mobile

Mercedes Benz together with FHV BBDO (idea), Pixplicity (technical), and Momkai (design) developed an app for your phone that centrally manages your energy usage, thus extending your battery life. Quite a nice brand utility, spreading the intelligence of Mercedes’ Blue Efficiency. On the other hand, to us it feels a little superfluous. We know how… More.

Product placement 2.0

This is product placement 2.0. A second screen app that turns product placement into a game. Developed by Achtung! for the new RTL drama series Divorce, about three guys who share an appartment, because they are all in the middle of a divorce.

Think 3D, Think LG

LG asked Perfect Fools to show the consumer that “the best things in life are better in 3D”. So the agency picked up a platform that is “universal, loved and fun,” namely Facebook, and turned it 3D. The new application enables you to see your newsfeed in 3D. Since everything nowadays needs to be turned into… More.
