Brazilian Creatives Banned from 2012 Competition for Fake KIA Ads

To follow up on that post I previously made on the pedo-themed Kia ad, a first has been had in Cannes history with the individual creatives being banned from entering future work. Oh, and it’s not for the content of the ad.

Why, then you might ask?

Well, turns out since Kia publicly denied ever having approved or run that disturbing ad, the Moma Propaganda (the agency responsible) commited a big no-no. Read more at the link.

End Of An Era of the Day: After 40 years in business, Borders announced today that it will be closing all remaining stores and laying off 11,000 employees.
“We were all working hard towards a different outcome,” Borders Group President Mike Edwards said in a statement, “but the headwinds we have been facing for quite some time, including the rapidly changing book industry, e-reader revolution, and turbulent economy, have brought us to where we are now.”
Borders had hoped to be saved from shuttering by a last minute bid, but the deal fell apart with no one else stepping up to buy the troubled book and music retailer.

Whoa.

What Google+ is really about

This is an excellent presentation that kinda lays out Google+’s social (or not so social) role in the interwebs.
Now I’ve been on Google+ for a while now, and I have to say, it’s pretty cool.
That being said, it has been way over-hyped as a revolutionary social network (and just in general). About really the only unique feature this thing has are its “Circles”, an interactive drag and drop feature you can organize friends with. That’s pretty cool. Scratch that, it’s pretty badass.
I’m just saying, let’s not jump on the bandwagon just yet, just because it’s new and shiny, and it’s the cool thing to hate on Facebook while lauding G+ as its Goliath Slayer. I’m sorry, it just is slightly irritating to hear all this hype about Google+ and I’m just not quite there myself yet in believing all of the talk.
This presentation does bring up ultimately the real competition (hint…has something to do with the “cloud”).

I'm a designer/art director/geek that likes to make things on (and off) the internet. I'm black, live in the DFW metroplex, work at an ad agency, and drink alone in the dark on week nights. While being black, I write this blog as a creative outlet.

My work has been featured multiple times by Tumblr, published in NET Magazine, Communication Arts, Adweek, The Webbys, HOW Design, W3 Awards, Web Designer Magazine, Under Consideration, Awwwards, Web Design Ledger, Web Designer Depot, Designworklife, Speckyboy, my mom's Facebook Timeline, and a variety of other publications.

I am currently unmarried, live alone, have no pets, and believe in the Oxford comma. I like eating tacos as well. Pants optional.
