Nice Work

As the September issue of Creative Review is a student work special, featuring our favourites from this year’s crop of graduates, we were unable to put our usual amount of great new work in the magazine. Instead, we will be putting up posts of new work regularly online over the next few weeks. Here is the first, featuring some of the best advertising that has passed through CR Towers lately. First up, in honour of the Olympics, here is some print work from 180 Amsterdam for Adidas.

Moving on from the Olympics we give you this atmospheric spot for Wrangler, shot by photographer Ryan McGinley for FFL Paris.

A quick diversion from advertising into music videos now, with this rather fine promo for The Wave Pictures, which was filmed by Guatamalan director Eduardo Benchoam, through the Radar Music Video scheme.

We end with two campaigns for Skittles. The first consists of ten campaigns created for a website, Go Skittle Yourself, where you can upload your own films and generally muck about with some fun content. The films are shot by Kim Albright.

The other is a test spot for the sweetie brand, which is very much in keeping with TBWAChiatDay New York’s work for Skittles (see the truly brilliant Trade and Touch if you’re unfamiliar) but is not from the agency. In fact, we’re not sure who is behind it but it’s funny so here it is…

Bobby’s Burger Palace

Pentagram’s new identity for Bobby’s Burger Palace in Lake Grove, Long Island.
Conveniently, each word in the name has six letters: sandwich them together and,
rather nicely, you get two buns, a burger (and some lettuce)
Burgers. They’ve been getting a bit of a bad press recently. So it’s nice to see a design studio having a decent pop at designing an identity for a range of burger restaurants, which, these days, could be thought of as a potentially healthy-eating (ahem) hot potato. But Pentagram has firmly grasped the buns here, so to speak, with its bright and bold identity work for celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s Burger Palace. To us it’s indicative of the time when chomping responsibly on the odd burger was supposed to be fun. Well at Bobby’s it clearly is, and Pentagram look to have made the experience a little more enjoyable…

Tube Philosophies

We came across this image today, taken recently at London’s King’s Cross station. While it’s nice to think that London Underground sanction this kind of freedom of expression in their employees, we believe it might be the work of artist Jeremy Deller. The artist had apparently been set to collaborate with LU staff on a series of pieces as part of the wider Art on the Underground programme, as Tamsin Dillon, head of the project explains in the current issue of CR: “Jeremy has come up with a booklet of quotes by the famous and not-so-famous and staff will be invited to use those in their communications with customers.” So, if this is Deller’s work, then there may be more underground philosophising to come. Keep ’em peeled.
