Seventeen-year-old art student Jamie Bell created this stop-motion clip using biros, about 50 jotter books and 2100 pages. It took him three weeks, but it was worth it – he received full marks from his teacher. (And us.)
Ford is currently bringing to market an inflatable seatbelt design for rear-seat passengers. The concept incorporates the added safety of airbag technology to reduce head, neck and chest injuries caused by seatbelt restraint in a crash.
As a former public relations consultant, Matt Mullins once made a living telling stories. Now, as a publican, his job is more about listening...
Not only does Adventure Capital's Stuart Richardson have a great hairdresser (we share the same barber) but he knows a thing or two about pitching for venture capital. This is because he lives at the receiving end of hundreds of pitches every week.
The Alphabet Photography company does two things really well. Firstly, it frames art that is made up of letters of the alphabet, hence the company name. Secondly, it comes up with brilliant Christmas videos as a part of its content marketing strategy. This year's effort is quite delightful.
The insights from Tom Wujec's design exercise are what makes this video worth watching. For instance: Kindergarten students are among the best builders, while recent graduates of business school are among the worst. Oh, and CEOs perform better if executive administrators are added to their team (somehow, that's not even remotely surprising).
Oh great. This is just what we need. San Fransisco is about to become even smarter. Some of the greatest tech companies, and the minds behind them, are joining forces to solve the problems of the city itself.
His answer may not come as a big surprise - in the shower. There's something about being in the shower, being relaxed and surrounded by...
You know I'm going to say that practice makes perfect, right? Well, it's true. If you want to become truly exceptional at something, be it playing...
This is an exceptional parody video of an Apple ad. It follows a distinct formula that anyone who has ever seen an Apple ad will...
This six minute commercial for scotch whiskey manufacturer Johnny Walker shares the entire history of the brand in one engaging monologue. It's hard not to watch and feel a warm and fuzzy feeling about the whiskey and its origins. (Or is that just Johnny Gold Label kicking in?)
In this video from the wonderful Academic Earth, Robert Sutton, author of "Weird Ideas that Work", argues that authority has its place, but most businesses succeed when creativity is allowed to flourish.
Carnegie Mellon University used to run a lecture series called "The Last Lecture". The premise was that, if this was your last lecture before you...
Microsoft founder Bill Gates, long removed from his days as soulless overlord of the company that ruled our PCs, warms up for his appearance at the G-20 with this interview, in which he talks about taxing the rich, helping Third World nations and... Steve Jobs.
This astonishing clip from Stargate Studios shows exactly how blockbusters films and prime-time television shows are now created -- rarely on location and without the inconvenience of extras ogling the stars. Next time you're watching the latest US drama (assuming that's your 'thang'), spare a thought for the poor actors (and their mountains of cash).
They promised us flying cars, back in the day, and I don't know about you but mine hasn't been delivered yet. Never mind. For the time being I'll settle for one of these. The Martin Jetpack shows just how far jetpack technology has come since Rocketman ignited the imaginations of little (and big) boys with his demonstration at the '84 Olympics in Los Angeles.
Like most would-be web-entrepreneurs, we discovered very early on that the 'Fields of Dreams' approach to web development is, unsurprisingly, flawed (i.e. 'if you build it, they will NOT come'). If building a profitable (or even sustainable) website were that easy, every web developer would be too busy swimming in their personal Jacuzzis of cash to apply their web-developing expertise to the many projects of small business owners and marketing professionals.
Based on dim-memory, subjective reasoning and a (slightly self-conscious) desire to create a traffic accumulating list of massive link bait longevity (like this one), we've created what we've (rather ambitiously) called, "The seven stupidest marketing stunts of all time." (The stunts are presented in no particular order.)
In this creepy campaign to gather new Twitter followers, one giant yellow mushroom takes following to a whole new level. Usually, it's called stalking. But, in this case, it's marketing.
The team behind this recent Mini Cooper campaign have taken outdoor advertising to a whole new level: They've taken it down a notch. In what could possibly be described as 3D, ground-level advertising (we're open to suggestions), Dutch agency Ubachswisbrun/JWT created this 'visual piece' to demonstrate the compact nature of the MINI. We're always impressed by memorable marketing.
