Clear Channel Digital

Derek and Paul from Clear Channel digital came in to give us a presentation today, the usual great technology I expect to see from Clear Channel. Now they have a new product they are launching, it's called the 'Socialite' and it's mainly for pubs and bars but it does sound like a good idea, makes a change from toilet door posters or those tiny little screens in hand-dryers. They are 40" portrait panels and advertisers can choose from 5 to 150 second ad length within 15 minute loop.
They are also up for working with you to look at new ways of making the roadside and shopping panels more interactive.

Egyptian Heinz advertising

I was just doing some blog-surfing and I found these Heinz ads on the bad banana blog, they are ads done by Leo Burnett Cairo (their site is quite cool too). They brought a smile to my face on a Thursday afternoon.

Promotional Marketing Exhibition 24-26th March

I'm going to this tomorrow so I'll let you know what it is like. Visit their site to register.

I went, it's quite a bit smaller than I expected but there was a lot there, the usual stuff but a few things that caught my attention. Also they are providing water duck transport from Victoria Station (near Billy Elliott) which is very cool, but short.

Metin the illustrator

Today we had Metin come into see us and show us his book (and he brought dounuts) - it's pretty amazing, he generally works off-site but will come in and take briefs. Metin has a very extensive range and will work to a style. A couple of the PM's here have used him on projects to scamp up ideas for pitches and presentations and have been impressed. His number is 07774235506.
