New Cadbury’s Ad

Trucks, Cadbury’s ad, Agency: Fallon. Director: Juan Cabral. Production company: Blink Productions
The follow-up to the hugely successful Cadbury’s Gorilla ad, from Fallon ad agency, airs on TV later today, but you can watch it here for a sneak preview.
With a soundtrack of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now, it retains the retro styling of Gorilla, but otherwise slightly lacks the out-and-out weirdness that made the first ad so special. It does perhaps offer a hint of why BA has been having such baggage-handling problems at the new Terminal 5 airport though…

Design Conferences: Isn’t it time we demanded more? asks Rick Poynor

For anyone who loves going to design conferences, we live in remarkable times. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of them. A design conference always seems to be just starting or finishing somewhere in the world. It would be quite possible to make going to conferences into a full-time job and some of the more in-demand and tireless design conference speakers appear to be doing just that. When do they get their real work done, you might wonder? The answer is that they do a lot of their thinking in transit, at 30,000 feet, or in the away-from-it-all, vacation atmosphere of distant hotel rooms paid for by conference organisers who are thrilled they are willing to appear.
