if you are working in the advertising industry
and if you don’t have time to check out the cannes award creative this year
i’d suggest you to at least have a look at the table below (the table is from JWT good stuff)
which is a good picture of how’s the performance of your agency last year
though, the regional award doesn’t seem like related to our daily jobs, and i honestly can’t see my agency works at that level, but it’s always better to know more
however, i’d still suggest you to check out the creative which is more meaningful than a table
i love this moodstream platform!!
rather than the cool keyword search
this allows us to choose photo/footage in a more user friendly way, combine with the music association
this really helps a lot in making good powerpoint~~
somehow, i don’t know why, makes me think about this ad….
no matter how many times you watch this ad, you still want to replay it
this is not new, but this is too funny that you can’t resist to view all his “songs”
the two giants in advertising
sometimes, i think they’re really like a 歡喜冤家 (i dunno how to call it in English)
WPP Group CEO Martin Sorrell, who moderated a “Cannes Debate” seminar today, opened it up by asking panelists from both paramours (Google & Yahoo) what’s with their “new love affair.”
Maurice Levy, said he wasn’t concerned about the Yahoo-Google deal and the potential for higher keyword prices. He also poked at long-term rival Mr. Sorrell and his habit of characterizing Google as a “frenemy.”
usually you don’t have any expectation for a corporate site
this is an exception
this is Japan Federation of Construction Contractors
apart from their cool graphics & flash
they have built a music mixer which is really fun and tie in with their business
they music is surprisingly in good quality
check out my composition:
i’ve been working on some finance portals from time to time
and in hong kong, real-time quote is not free, we can only check the delayed quote in yahoo finance
recently google announced that they provide REAL-TIME quote for NYSE and NASDAQ market
well, i’m not sure if real-time quote is free or not in US
but i’m quite sure google is the pioneer on finance tool
just compare the stock screener between google and yahoo
it’s like a 1.0 between 2.0
no wonder the future of yahoo is so dim…
even for a stock screener, we can sense they don’t focus on technology, r&d
advertising is easy!
cool, advertising is really like porn
this is interesting
