Lovely take on the Coke Happiness idea – TD Canada


This is a very personalised take on the idea of a machine that usually requires a transaction surprising you by giving something back. It’s been created for the bank TD Canada.

yes they are using the data of their customers, but the end result is rather lovely.

Emotions from Facts. Clever and touching.

Facebook’s Trending Platform for the #WorldCup


Trending World Cup[1] A big AHOY to Facebook’s trending platform for the World Cup. And what better way to demonstrate the “world-ness” of said World Cup than with a map showing where fans are engaging from.

All you need to follow your team – if you’re quite lazy like me…

Best experiential tech this week – Anki


I’d like to introduce you to Anki. It’s a physical/digital game and its controlled by AI. Why do I love this? It’s simple, elegant, addictively fun and I couldn’t work out how it works just by looking at it. We have been playing with this in the office. A lot.

The cars detect codes that are part of the track and that allows them to determine their position on the race track. It communicates that back to your phone and you play via an app. As you get better your experience gets better, you earn upgrades, and of course the software keeps updating so it’s a toy that gets better the longer you have it.

Yet another development in the world of connected devices which proves that it’s not all about fridges and garage doors.

The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human


The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us HumanThe Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human by Jonathan Gottschall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A really interesting exploration on how integral story is to being human. From the stories we use to explore dangers whilst asleep to our endless need for conspiracy theories. Very readable with interesting anecdotes and some of the author’s own personal storied thrown in to illustrate.

Sochi Social


We are well into the Winter Olympics now in Sochi and I have been poking about trying to find out what social activity looks like.

I think it would be no surprise that social activity is lagging behind London, Russia is another country in more ways than one, and the levels of global excitement are inevitably less than for the Olympics, simply because the sports in the Winter Olympics require conditions that are difficult to find in much of the world.

Brands seem to be taking a safe line – sponsors are getting involved heavily, but challengers are more reticent, possibly due to the controversies surrounding Russian statements about the LGBT community.

Regardless, here is a nice and succinct infographic you might enjoy.

Zombies ate my face – Snickers in Seoul


A great installation that brings to life Snickers’ brand message ‘You are not you when you’re hungry’.

Use of memes, strategy actually informing creative, fun. Great example of simple, one-touch visual content.
