The Working Week: June 23

Too busy to be a sponge this week? Don't worry here are some things we've find interesting.

Cannes News

10 Cannes shortlists. But it never won a chip. Or did it? (7 years earlier)

Apparently it's also getting too big for it's booze boots. Publicis says it isn't going next year and WPP are having second thoughts too. Info >

And Fearless Girl takes home 3 Grand Prixs. Go girl. Info >

Interesting stuff we've found


Braille Bricks

A toy building brick can be whatever you imagine it to be, or even something you've never imagined. Braille Bricks is an experiment that transforms these bricks into a tool capable of encouraging creativity, helping blind children learn to read and write. It also encourages the inclusion of children with or without visual impairment. Have a play here >

TFL x Pride

Transport for London and Pride have teamed up to add rainbows to their tube signage, Boris bikes and stations entrances. Have a looksies >

Dark Stock Photos

Pretty dark. And available on a stock library near you.

Field Day 2017

When our friends at Pitch & Sync invited us to attend Field Day 2017 a few weeks prior, I couldn’t be more excited. Not only are they great at discovering new and alternative music, they also have a great understanding of what music does for emotive advertising. So, it comes as no surprise that they were going to collaborate with - literally one of the best alternative music festivals in the world - Field Day for their 10th anniversary. Here’s to 10 amazing years of music discovery, production and helping us create iconic advertising - Thank you P&S.

CS Presents: How to be brave

Call me narrow minded but ‘How To Be Brave’ wouldn’t normally be a line that I would put hand in hand with creativity. That said… This talk was a huge eye opener and it was exhilarating to see the line-up of speakers and what being brave meant to them.
