Here are few of the best things we’ve found this week in the world of art, design and branding.
Lead Pencil Studio‘s fantastic new installation, Non-Sign II at the Vancouver/US border works as a kind of ‘anti-billboard’ that frames the changing landscape beyond. It’s being described as the billboard that advertises nothing, and has caused a bit of a stir among various blogs. Found via Res72, more on FastCoDesign.
Shot at Heathrow’s terminal 5 last week, the three minute version launched this week on the 80 UK TV channel. Aside from a slight worry that the whole flashmob thing is a bit old hat, it’s very well done. It’s entertaining and makes you want to watch it, there is a lot of really genuine human emotion going on here and it manages to avoid the self indulgence that would be very easy with this kind of ad…And amazingly no instruments – just voices creating it all.
