Cannavaro lifts cup for Nike

One of our very first blog posts here on CR Blog showed a selection of posters created by Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam for Nike Italy. The campaign was for new Nike football boots and each poster celebrated one of the members of Italy’s World Cup winning team in the style of 1950s advertisements. As we reported in that original blog post, each poster is the starting point for an animated spot and W+K have kindly just showed us the first spot to be completed…

It features a very jolly Cannavaro taking on a host of ice cream spoons, from whom he steals a load of balls. Balls of ice cream that is. Truly charming stuff that harks back to a time when advertising seemed well, more innocent…

Game On for the IT Crowd

Remember when loading a computer game involved a tape player and a lot of patience? Well, that mid-80s era is the inspiration for the menu system and interface for the new DVD release of the first series of TV comedy, IT Crowd, created by Framestore Design

Something for the weekend

If you feel like engaging in a little culture this weekend, take a trip to see Swiss artist Christoph Büchel’s epic, sprawling exhibition at Hauser & Wirth gallery’s East End branch, Coppermill. Situated just off Brick Lane, Büchel has merged the gallery seamlessly with its surroundings, turning the entire space into a down-at-heel hotel/cheap electronics shop, complete with a tacky sign and shop front on the outside of the gallery.
Moving inside, the illusion continues as a staircase leads into the hotel itself, a rabbit warren of rooms that are disturbingly stuffed with beds, including narrow mattresses in the kitchen and bathroom. The attention to detail is obsessive, with drawers, desks and beds littered with personal possessions while half-eaten food and overflowing ashtrays suggest a very quick getaway by any inhabitants.
