When will these cowboys learn, If you are going to copy someone’s work you will be found out. Whats worse is that if you have been caught doing it people will be watching you to see if you do it again, and Todd Picquelle has done it again!

Secret rooms – Car elevator

11 05 2009

Not enough space for all your cars, or just too precious about your car and want to make sure it’s safe? Why not get a secret room built for it with an elevator?

This creative custom car elevator by Cardok (based in Bristol UK) turns a residential patio into a hidden parking space, which is safer than a locked garage, and looks great too.

It is operated by remote control and takes about 30 seconds to reveal your additional parking space.

Coca-Cola Summer Fun

8 05 2009

We all know Coca-Cola is one of the most recognisable brands in the world, and they can afford to have some fun with their brand.

A few years ago they did a campaign where they only showed a portion of their logo on billboards, everyone knew what the ad was for all thanks for the iconic logo and striking red colour. I couldn’t find a photo of the billboard so I made one.

It was similar to this:coca-cola

This year Coca-Cola are having fun with their brand again, and have designed 5 new cans all with varying scenes of summer on them including aviators, beach balls, surfboards, the American flag, and BBQ’s.

Psychedelic Commercial

Psychedelic Commercials – Matthew Williamson for H&M – Exclusive online

I just came across a new commercial done for H&M, very colourful, and playful. It is always refreshing to find creative advertising, in today’s world. Most of us skip past ads on TV, but thankfully this one is exclusive online and it is one that you might end up passing to your friends.

Great bit of viral advertising that isn’t something funny or disturbing, but instead it’s creative and gives you a good idea about the collection it’s advertising.

According to some of the YouTube comments H&M commissioned the song for the ad and there is no mention weather it will be available for download at some point.

Some info about the music:
Composer/ Producer – Malcolm Pardon & Fredrik Rinman
Lyrics – Johan Renck
Name of music – We need a Change
Music origin country – Sweden

And finally a link to the ad itself:
