JWT London created the Kit Kat Klock, which was screened on digital billboards on the London Underground and projected on various buildings across the city yesterday, in an attempt to remind Londoners (who work the longest hours in Europe) to take a break. The ads feature a number of clocks whose hands periodically come together to form the word ‘Break’. Exec creative director: Russell Ramsey, creative director: Jason Berry, creative team: Hugh Todd, Adam Scholes, Richard Buchanan.

Modernista! ad agency in the US has created this film for Brooklyn-based non-profit organisation Doc to Dock, which uses simple graphics to raise awareness of the charity and what it represents.

Stink Digital and Santo London has created Diesel Island: Land of the Stupid and Home of the Brave, a website for the clothing brand which allows users to “create and vote on laws, public holidays and the national anthem and try and shape the democracy of ‘the least fucked up country of all'”.

Finally we end today’s round-up with a stylish new music video for Skream track Where You Should Be, from director Carl Burgess (Blinkart/Colonel Blimp). Happy Friday one and all.
