Creative Review was one of several UK-based winners at the Art Directors Club awards in New York last week, picking up a silver for our Monograph series.

In case you haven’t seen it, Monograph is our 20-page A5 booklet that goes out free to our subscribers each month. It features a different project or collection of work each time. We’ve been running it since September, in which time we’ve featured collections of modernist posters and stamps, vintage art books, 70s watches and 60s record sleeves as well as work from photographers Tim Simmons and Tim Flach and Daniel Mason’s print samples, the latter (see below) being chosen for the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year show

The Sweet Sound of Success

Still from the Ode To Ford ad written by Ogilvy London and directed
by Noam Murro. Now the victim of a rather funny YouTube-hosted spoof
In this day and age, it’s never been easier to doctor audio or visual material with tools on our computers. When we posted up the latest Cadbury’s ad from Fallon (that features a host of airport vehicles racing each other to the soundtrack of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now) a few weeks ago – almost immediately people responded by posting links to spoof films or versions with soundtracks tweaked for maximum hilarity. On one hand spoofs are made to poke fun at an original piece of work – but on the other, they acknowledge the original as a valid cultural reference point. So you could say, you know you’ve made it when your work is spoofed or parodied…

Central Station: 24 Hour Arty People

In design terms, what do we think of first when we think of Factory Records? Perhaps it’s the impact of Michael Winterbottom’s 2002 film, 24 Hour Party People and, more recently, that of Anton Corbijn’s Control, that steers our thoughts towards Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures, or that famously costly New Order sleeve for Blue Monday.
