Things Kid Say Film
A little while ago we beat 4 agencies to win the pitch for a project to get people talking about Windows Phone. Well, it went LIVE yesterday! Looks like a few folks are picking up on it and I am sure its going to get a few talking. http://www.marketingmagazine.co.uk/article/1183003/parents-face-awkward-questions-windows-phone-film

Good agencies and good clients no longer have to choose to be “creative” or “effective”. Interesting POV and very true - from Donald Gunn - founder of The Gunn Report. Couldn’t agree more Mr Gunn.

#SXSW. Robots. Rockets.

Football 0 Creativity 1 - Sorry football! Looks like I still has a star creative in the team as the pro teams have no vision.
Lovely short documentary that tells the story of Surfers Against Sewage. The film follows those involved with the charity, their passion for surfing, and the campaign for a better coastal environment. Well done Carlos @ London Sessions Productions

Hiring creative talent for the “New Digital” world...
Last year was a big year for us at Jam - we managed to get very lucky and win a shed load of new work with a small but passionate team against agencies twice, sometimes three or four times our size. So now I am looking ahead and starting to think about finding the right people who have what I like to call “New Digital” skills and attitude. Over the years (yes, I am an old git) I’ve run a...

DOWNLOADING GOING UP
The web is shifting rapidly in the UK and other parts of the world. Changing in a new way that has the potential to go bigger with video. If you look at some of the stats from the US the average fixed-line user now downloads more than 50Gb per month, up 20 Gb from just six months ago - that’s a 66% increase. Real time entertainment in the states now accounts for around 65% of peak time...

MILKING CATS? WTF
I just got off a call with someone and used that well known saying “as slow as milking a cat”. WTF? Fuck - I don’t know how long it takes to milk a cat? Do different breeds have different milk delivery speeds? Where the fuck in the first place did this mad saying come from? Maybe someone sat down and preformed a speed test on a variety of animals and found cats a most unproductive milk...

Thanks for the write up Marketing Magazine. Great to be up with the likes of Digital greats like LBi, AKQA, RGA, WorkClub and Glue.

Red Stripe - this shop is rocking
The nicest bit of experiential activity seen this week belongs to Red Stripe. The lager brand (and sponsor of the Jamaican bobsled team) gave the go-ahead to transform an unassuming corner shop in Dalston (where else?) into a musical experience every time someone picks up a can of the product. Watch the video here: http://youtu.be/GJ-RIbBFQAk And discover how it was made:...
