Holland wins 6 Webby’s

Last week the Spinawards were awarded to the best digital cases in the Netherlands. That was just a Dutch affair. You would guess that internationally the Webby’s are a better indicator. But when looking at the winners, the show doesn’t seem to represent the best of Holland’s digital work. The 18th edition awarded 3 Webby’s… More.

Big in form

Christian Borstlap proudly presents 5 (out of 7) bulbs to the press – photo by Matthijs Immink.  Unfortunately it took us half a week to recover from the ADCN (Art Director Club Netherlands) awards (read: the party afterwards).

Das Hund

Another very fine piece of advertising by DDB for Volkswagen. A dog mimicking a Volkswagen. Nothing more, nothing less. But with viral potential galore.

Product placement 2.0

This is product placement 2.0. A second screen app that turns product placement into a game.

The game is simple; whenever you see Volkswagen car keys on TV… More.

Up Holland Up

Volkswagen – ‘mobility sponsor’ of the Dutch Olympic team – created this modified Volkswagen Up together with Achtung! and B-Lex. Just to translate the pun; the title of this campaign is a variation on Hup Holland Hup, which more or less translates as ‘Go Holland Go’. The car is propelled by decibels; the louder you shout, the… More.
