Bicky, named after Vicky

We like odd and quirky. Especially when brands are talking about products that don’t really have any interesting benefits. Since burgers can nowadays be acquired on every corner of the street, odd and quirky is what sets you apart. Brussels’ based Mortierbrigade is known for the… More.

Everything Artis

After the immensely popular cuddly animal ‘Artis de Partis’ – almost part of the Dutch heritage – and the take-away outdoor stickers, Artis has launched yet another great ‘brand utility’; building blocks with which fans of Amsterdam’s zoo Artis can create any animal they like. The… More.

Way-out weirdness

Old Spice has successfully claimed the domain of way-out weirdness. This week they’re taking it to the next level by parodying their own parodies of advertising by remixing them. Behold and see Nick DenBoer’s ‘horrifying mutant nightmare abomination’.

SmartBike

This month bicycle brand Van Moof launches its ‘SmartBike’, which is a bicycle that fixes some of the typical urban problems a cyclist runs into. Direction duo Ine & Sanne, together with creative Glenn van de Dood, created some short how-to videos (aired as pre-rolls)… More.

Crucifying crosses (except the red one)

On the 8th of May it’s Red Cross Day. We had never heard of it, but thanks the Red Cross in Belgium and Duval Guillaume we now have. We’ve even learned that crosses are not the most friendly symbols when it comes to mass killings.… More.

Temperamental Spanish Wine

The Next Rembrandt

This ad, creating ‘the next Rembrandt’ 347 years after the master has passed away, gives us a peak into the possibilities of big data, deep learning and artificial intelligence. Together with JWT, the Technical University of Delft, Microsoft’s Azure-platform, and the Mauritshuis and Rembrandthuis museum,… More.

A collaboration with nature

Mineral water commercials are usually not very exciting. What do you tell your agency? It’s natural? The Netherlands has about the cleanest tap water in the world – without chlorine – so there is no real reason to buy mineral water – except maybe adding another bottle to the plastic soup. You said natural?… More.

It’s not fair

“Life is filled with unfair things, but Moyee FairChain Coffee is fairer than those things” is the typical somewhat superficial way for ad agencies to look at things. However, when you execute it as attractively as 180 has done, the film (and thus the brand) becomes easily… More.
