Today’s shopper is an omni-channel creature, seeing little difference between shopping online, in-store or via mobile.

Senior Art Director Dave Carlson and Senior Copywriter Mike Baroni were invited to judge the final presentations of students in Columbia College’s Advertising Art Direction class.

For a brief shiny moment, Steve Jobs showed the world that America was a magical place of infinite commerce & technological possibility. He did so with verve, style and an unprecedented focus on simplicity. His legacy is the challenge to dream a little bigger, to execute that dream with excellence and not let the world become ordinary and grey without him.
– We are inspired by his legacy.

Fiat Spain has launched a new app called Fiat Street Evo. It recognizes traffic signs and transforms them into features of the new Punto Evo, a car that’s targeted to a younger, more tech-savvy crowd. The app recognizes traffic signs as if they were QR codes, associating each sign with a feature directly related to that sign. For example, a STOP sign will tell the user all about the new breaking system, a CURVE AHEAD sign will tell the user that the car has an intelligent lighting system that guides you in curves. The list goes on with every feature of the car. Pretty cool stuff, and incredibly successful, as you’ll see at the end of this clip.
