    We're hoping more copies of James White's poster will become available. All profits go to the disaster relief effort.

  • Is Your City Honest?

    / Comments (0)

    Creativity just featured the case study vid for the recent Honest Tea "social experiment" conducted in major cities like San Francisco, New York, Chicago and of course, our very own Beantown.

    We actually caught up with producer Ben Cohen when they did the Boston leg of the experiment last summer. So shout outs to him and his team for the nice work and the well-deserved recognition – and to you, Boston, for being mostly honest.

    Big Boi of Outkast + The Black Keys = Win.

    We love a good mashup. Don't you? One can argue making a great ad is akin to putting together a solid mashup that just works. Blending elements of the familiar to create something new and engaging. Right?

    Happy Monday, folks.

  • Tumblr Thursday: Clients From Hell

    / Comments (0)

    This week's Tumblr Tuesday is coming to you on Tumblr Thursday. We at the Boston Egotist have been struck with the "flu" and have been trying to find a way to use it as an excuse to go play hooky at SXSW. So far, no luck, but we will be following the tweets and blogs of all the agencies that are Austin-bound this week.

    Without further ado...
    Clients from Hell has been around for awhile, but for those of you spending late nights at the agency, it's possible that you've missed it. Featuring reader-submitted stories, Clients from Hell focuses mostly on the trials and tribulations of being a freelance designer.

    One of our recent favorite submissions was:
    "I’m afraid of Facebook, people can find you through it. They could have complaints and I don’t want to be hunted down by the Facebook people."

    We've all had a client from hell and thankfully now we have a Tumblrblog to commiserate about it.

  • Another Women's Leadership Event

    / Comments (0)

    Not to be outdone by every other women's leadership event in Boston this month, The Ad Club's Women's Leadership Forum is coming up on March 21st.

    Despite the noticeable lack of representatives from ad land at the event (Arnold's Pam Hamlin excluded), we're still looking forward to hearing from Project Runway quitter Maya Luz and our favorite hometown restauranteur Barbara Lynch.

  • Rumor Mill: SCVNGR to Announce a New Product at SXSW

    / Comments (0)

    Just in time for people to have almost forgotten about him, SCVNGR's Chief Ninja, Seth Priebatsch, is rumored to be making a very, very big announcement during his Keynote at SXSW on Saturday.

    A source very close to the Egotist says the new product announcement is going to blow the "game layer" out of the water.

    The real question is, do you care? Let us know in the comments.

  • "Southern Comfort Goes Digital in New Orleans"

    / Comments (3)

    Or at least that was the headline that was sent to us.
    Not sure how "digital" this actually is, but we'll let you decide that for yourselves.

    "Arnold Worldwide teams with Brown-Forman, Foursquare and Minneapolis brand design firm Cue to create a Mardi Gras outdoor promotion for client Southern Comfort in New Orleans French Quarter.

    An outdoor billboard at the corner of Royal and Canal Street invites revelers to use Foursquare and check-in and “Come Back Next Year With Your Own Krewe” by entering a sweepstakes to win a trip to Mardi Gras in 2012.

    Creative credits for the banner go to Arnold Chief Creative Officer Pete Favat, Creative Director John Kearse, Art Director Ben Salsky and Art Director Emily Taing."
