Project Re-brief by Google

rebrief450

In 2011, Google partnered with four global brands in an advertising experiment. The goal was simple - how can the ideas that defined the advertising industry in its infancy, inspire a whole new generation of creatives and marketers? We re-imagined and remade their most iconic ad campaigns from the 1960's and 1970's with today's technology, led by the creative legends who made these campaigns.

THE RESULT People noticed, lingered on the visual and internalised the anti-smoking message

Great compilation of Augmented Reality: the future of digital media

AR450

Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match.

evologo450

The evolution of logo designing could be traced back to the Ancient Greece, when the rulers and their dynasties used to use cipher as a monogram in their coins. However, the modern logo designing dates back to the early days of the Renaissance, around the 13th Century.

(Please don’t make me do the contract thing again this year.) We rediscovered typography (again). We learned to think about mobile first. We learned how to make responsive sites. And we stopped comping with lorem ipsum and started paying attention to the actual stuff we were...
