If you saw the story about Cecilia Gimenez and her attempt to restore a 100 year old Spanish fresco, and thought to yourself, I could do better than that, then go ahead…
After seeing the story of one ederley womens attempt to restore a beloved 100 year old painting, a creative team at BBH thought they’d allow everyone give it a go.
The Cecilia Prize website was created in order to let everyone have a go at “restoring” the peice of art, they are also offering, as an incentive, the opportunity to win your very own copy of Cecilia’s artwork. You can enter by tweeting your picture with the hashtag #ceciliaprize
These two are my favorites so far, click here for the entire gallery.

The internet is bursting with various different nail art techniques, but none quite mach up to these…
These are created by Alice Bartlett a computer coder from London. She made these mini landscapes from various peices of a model railway set.
Thinking they’d make intresting photos she set it up on one hand whilst taking photos with the other. After she was done she stuck the minitures around her house as little surprises for visitors.

The Alotment have recently given international brand The Donkey Sanctary a whole new identy.
The London based design and branding agency took on the project last August, with the task of bringing the charitys core purpose ” care and devotion” to the forefront.
Managing director at The Allotment, Paul Middlebrook, says, ‘They had quite an inconsistent identity with a lot of different logos, we’ve created a much more monolithic brand.’
Core to the new identity is the heart shaped logo, made from an image of two donkeys. They’ve then gone on to pull this concept over to other areas of the charity, therefore allowing thier brand to flow better.
The Alotment have also worked on a number of touch points including livery, signage, gifts and print collateral,aswell as also working on the charity’s website, which is set to launch next year.
Creative partener at The Alotment, James Backhurst says, ‘Because The Donkey Sanctuary is an international charity we wanted to reflect the palpable “care and devotion” of its supporters in a way that would be instantly understood regardless of language.’
The charity are pleased with the new designs, and feel that ‘Our new, more emotive-based brand will help us to raise the consciousness of potential new supporters and allow us to communicate more effectively with existing donors.’

Today for no particular reason other than being a little bored, I made some pictures of elephants. I guess they would make pretty cards or notebook covers.

This is a teaser video me and Mikie Daniel created for The Stannary. It’s to advertise an event they were calling the Zombie Summer Shuffle.

The more I looked into the way agencies were “preparing”themselves to take on digital marketing the more I began to consider, that maybe they were kicking up way more fuss than any of it was worth. By which I mean, there is a whole new generation of people out there who have been bought up with digital marketing, and already see it as a vital part of any campaign. Why are agencies spending so much time and money, as well as risking loosing big clients like Dare did, merging with digital agencies when everybody trying to get into the industry now or in the next few years, would automatically create a digital campaign to run alongside any traditional based one. Although I don’t agree with the idea that digital marketing is a fad, I am beginning to think that perhaps this hype is likely to die down soon, and putting digital aspects into a campaign may become as standard as television and print.

Upon finishing my case study I do feel that I’ve actually managed to draw to quite a solid conclusion. I definitely feel that Dare Digitals merge with MCBD was for the best. I am aware that a lot of the evidence I collected shows that if anything there actually doing a little worse than before, but who knows what they would have been like now if they’d stuck to their original structures. Also, as an agency that’s only really been around for a year and half its really making a name for its self. All my research supports the idea that purely digital or purely traditional agencies are becoming a thing of the past as everybody strives to cover all basis. Meaning campaigns that cover all media bases, whilst complement each other in the process, as if they were made by the same agency, are were the industry is heading.

Unlike everybody else, I didn’t actually ask anybody any questions, I know you probably feel as if I should have done, however I do have my reasons as to why not. For starters, some kind of questionnaire or survey would have been a little useless as the people i was asking would need a rather detailed understanding of the workings of MCBD and Dare Digital before the merge as well as after. I could have asked peoples opinions on there current work, however, I don’t exactly see the point in that when the ads have already been subjected to a number of different awards schemes and rated subsequently. Also as a quite talked about topic there wasn’t really any questions left to ask that somebody else hadn’t already done so. Also, I feel that my case study is far more fact than opinion based, meaning, asking people there opinion on how they think the merge went would render a little useless in my research.
