Our suggestions for week 47
The high five
Every week we select our top 5 of the most interesting, coolest, funniest and most exciting stuff that we have encountered on the web and elsewhere. In our studio we have been sharing things that we see around us all day and that we find remarkable for ages. This way we keep each other informed of the world outside of our personal perspective, because we share a hunger for new.
With this overview we give you a look behind the scenes at Kern. In addition to projects from clients and self-initiated projects, this is what concerns Jort, Vivian, Jord, and John Patrick. Do share this list and let us know if you have any tips!
Rediscovering the value of a massive brand
Adidas is one of our time’s most powerful brands. Sure. But it’s interesting to read how to more or less lost their way in the past decade by focusing primarily on ROI and data-insights at the cost of investing in their brand. We can only hope more companies will pop out of the data-insights-bubble and re-value their brand in order to find a more balanced approach to building their brand and steering on data-insights. Check the article here.
We don’t think that Poland and fancy design are a natural match. It’s nice to be proven wrong though, because uauproject kicks ass. All their products are designed to be 3D printed from plant based bioplastics like PLA. It’s like homebrewing with plastics. Sort of. Nice concept, cool designs. From Warsaw, obviously a cooler place than we thought – note to self –. Check their shop for affordable designs. Or start printing their designs yourself!
Let there be light!
If you checked our previous weekly top 5s (highly recommended reading, please do!) you surely noticed we are suckers for cool contemporary architecture. We found another gem; Light Falls by Flow. It’s a redevelopment of a Victorian terraced house In London’s Kensington – kahtchinggg – and it’s poeticly beautiful. Let’s not waste words describing it, please click and see for yourself.
IDFA (campaign by KesselsKramer 1)
IDFA (International Documentary Festival Amsterdam) has started again and it makes us hungry for 90% of their programme… Tipping just one here, but we also want to shed some light on the wonderful campaign by KesselsKramer for IDFA 2019. That mirror movie is ace!! Pretty impressive to see how KesselsKramer still makes top notch work after 30 years!
NEMO (campaign by KesselsKramer 2)
Is it a no go to list two projects of the same creator in one weekly list? Well then sue us, because here’s another KK campaign. This one’s for the NEMO Science Museum and it perfectly hits the mark. Kids love this, so do we. Somehow KesselsKramer has a talent of making you aware of what you want by not pushing it in your face, but by running it under your nose or in the corner of your eye. It made us dive into their archives and feel very humbled by their funny and intelligent approach to brand building.
Next week a new Friday TopFiveDay!!
