A car ad, made from car ads!

So I saw this ad this morning and rather liked it. I’m a sucker for anything interactive and this one hits the nail on the head… Want a new Alfa? Sell your old car and get one. Simple message. But

Back in business!

Okay, so that was a slightly longer Christmas break than I’d planned to take, but it seems the work doesn’t go away, even though you’ve decided the festive time-out… basically, I’ve been too busy to blog. But don’t worry folks,

The D&AD does it again…

Today, ladies and gentlemen, we have the D&AD’s promotional video for the 2010 awards. As we’d expect, it’s rather good. Actually, it manages to give you a sense of history, while showing off just what the awards are about –
