Maybelline M:Edition

Wow. Around a year ago we pitched a big idea into a potential new client. It was ambitious, it drew upon all of our cumulative skills and the outcome is the biggest piece of work we've ever undertaken - while the reader (you) might only see a digital magazine delivered to where you are, in a format friendly to where you are, and with a great range of researched, beautifully prepared, relevant words, pictures and film. Well, it's actually a whole lot more than that. From the agencies' and our clients' perspective, this is a platform to take a brand forward boldly into a future of fulltime engagement. It's adaptable, readable, interactive, shareable, regular and expandable. It's M:Edition. Thank you Jo, Stormy, T, Al, Z, Cassie, Nat, Lauren, Cath, Mads, Wil, Jack, Paul, Josh and of course our friends over at Ortolan. (Big moment, take a look).

A thousand or five

We did this. Yes, we're responsible (in a big part) for this. And we love it. We did it for Right Angle with Karl and Craig. Thanks to our team Stormboy, Eski, Alex, Benji, Wil, Nat, Dani, Katya, Simone, Rob, Ben, Ben, Hamish & Katie. With a special ones to Nadia, Rachel, Barrie, Chris and Frunch. I'd expect that, not unlike a doting mum welcoming back their now mid- teens daughter complete with ink and holes from exchange over in iceland/germany/scotland there's a few oh dears, and ums. And, we'd also expect that over a short period of time the new/faster/better cataloguing, sorting, finding, editing and other fun features will settle and the whole experience of the thousands will remain the park where all the cool kids come to play. Like, no-one ever grows up?

I say "claim" as technically the award was for M&C Saatchi, however I can assure all folk that indeed the awards protagonists were in fact Tobie C for Creative Direction and Conceptual Dev consulting at M&C, Design and refinement AJ Lawang with Greg Fiske (in house at M&C) and two ABLT-esque gentlemen Rhys Sullivan (with a bit of Jemi) for the programming. And here it is: Therefore and with good reason we're claiming it a bit, which makes us all a bit happy. Full list of the nights recipients here:

Hugh Peachey Photography: Live

We've just launched a new site for Hugh Peachey Photography. Hugh does good work - so it's very exciting. hugh1 It's modest yet functional, it's about the photography after all, built on the wordpress framework. Many thanks to Benji for the build and smart use of Java-tech to keep it all looking swanky, and to Hugh for keeping it simple and clear. Lovely - now we celebrate.
