Music Video / Film

If you want to tell an engaging story of unrequited love, then why not tap into the work of filmmakers who really know how to shoot this stuff, as director Keith Schofield proves in this brilliantly assembled video for Darwin Deez track, You Can't Be My Girl...

No spoilers, just watch and enjoy this slice of Eels-like tunesmithery and visual collage. (Then try and imagine where any of it could conceivably be used in anything other than this video.) See also Women Laughing Alone With Salad.

Label : Lucky Numbers Music Ltd. Commissioner: Stephen Richards. Production Company: Caviar London. Executive Producer: Laura Tunstall. Producer: Helen Power. Directors Rep: Joceline Gabriel. DOP: Ben Fordesman.


CR in Print
The February issue of CR magazine features a major interview with graphic designer Ken Garland. Plus, we delve into the Heineken advertising archive, profile digital art and generative design studio Field, talk to APFEL and Linder about their collaboration on a major exhibition in Paris for the punk artist, and debate the merits of stock images versus commissioned photography. Plus, a major new book on women in graphic design, the University of California logo row and what it means for design, Paul Belford on a classic Chivas Regal ad and Jeremy Leslie on the latest trends in app design for magazines and more. Buy your copy here.

Please note, CR now has a limited presence on the newsstand at WH Smith high street stores (although it can still be found in WH Smith travel branches at train stations and airports). If you cannot find a copy of CR in your town, your WH Smith store or a local independent newsagent can order it for you. You can search for your nearest stockist here. Alternatively, call us on 020 7970 4878, or buy a copy direct from us. Based outside the UK? Simply call +44(0)207 970 4878 to find your nearest stockist.

Read in-depth features and analysis plus exclusive iPad-only content in the Creative Review iPad App. Longer, more in-depth features than we run on the blog, portfolios of great, full-screen images and hi-res video. If the blog is about news, comment and debate, the iPad is about inspiration, viewing and reading.
