In the absence of a new aesthetic (NA), it’s good to see Spandau Ballet with no identity crisis. Fantastic really. Helen Mirren is beautiful to look at and Tony Hadley moves like an actor playing a mafioso. No?











Well maintained, well mannered, beautiful to look at are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl, aside from Tony Hadley, at age 54 no clown on stage.

Which one are you?

Having been there, done all, I’d say, I am the thief. But that space is taken by Faris Yacob.Been there did nothing (Schulz)

Due to my most recent recent hick-up №4, when I spilled my retirement cash into Berlin’s river Spree, I am back to designing and making clients succeed with their businesses. I am at my best in branding – providing people with becoming characteristics in the early 21. century. Simply by matching their brand pillars or character trades and where they want to go with the most popular usability and web typography.

I’ve had the same school of people on my radar since their discovery (me stumbling upon their digital left behinds shortly after the Berlin hick-up in 2006), and I am as excited as envious to see Ana Andjelic and Gareth Kay edit a book on the future of advertising and John V Willshire starring in the video. How refreshing!

Alas, I don’t like the book cover all too much. Here’s one I’d like to see on the market.

Questions addressed in the book are:

  • What does the industry need to do today (not tomorrow) to stay valuable and relevant?
  • What the f**k do clients know about great advertising?
  • How can copying make you more original?
  • How do we ‘do’ innovation?
  • Should we make things people want rather than make people want things?
  • How do you find emotional resonance in real time marketing?
  • What’s the best way to punch procrastination in the face?
  • And why are we so excited by the next generation of advertising?

    Thawing out to frozen Disney sex

    I allowed myself the diversion by the indignation about Disney’s ‘Frozen’, I missed watching and its trailers are now causing silent rejoicing, about the cgi animators’ gifted observation abilities and the ever more sophisticated technologies being used.

    The charming, female pace of the ice queen Elsa in Disney’s family epic ‘Frozen’ disconcerts the compatriots. The steadily increasing ability of observation and raised level of awareness, that is incubated by the web, is both pleasing and reassuring. An indicator how brand building must become more responsive for these new, yet genuinely analogue customs, that of trained observation skills by the public.

    Branding is no longer dominated by manipulating a few static images, but by public investigation of your brand’s movement reflected by the web in real time (DIY real time chronicle) and you’re on the safe side if your brand movement are as alluring as Elsa’s sexy walk.

    Until German television station have discoverd a new business model or global distribution system, quality tv won’t have the budget to exercise high concept film productions and make them available to local teams. For now it’s let go and buy from Scandinavian and American tv.
