Augmented Reality

Layar.com + Google Glass

The future is exciting when you can imagine something so out there and yet it actually starts to come to fruition. For me, I was stunned by the possibilities of augmented reality a few years back, when I discovered that it existed for the first time. I must have been living under a rock even back than because […]

Jameson International Film Festival

More Good work from Ireland. Blinder, recently submitted this Film Festival campaign on behalf of the agency Boys & Girls. Both of these are pretty well done, but I’ll say that Cabin was the better of the two if I were to pick. Great work. “Heist” “Cabin” Advertiser: Jameson Agency: Boys and Girls Title: “Heist” […]

No Nonsense Car Insurance from Publicis Ireland

  Decent attention grabbing spots for a car insurance company from Ireland. I guess my favorite of the bunch would be ‘ready made’, but even so for a car insurance company you sure show a lot of car/general destruction. Albeit that will probably get the point across to a mass audience… sadly. Advertised brand: No […]

Energie Fitness Clubs by Publicis, Dublin Ireland

A new user submitted campaign from Dublin Ireland came in today for Energie Fitness Clubs. Someone might like ‘The Rock’ over there!

Clean Energy Highways… Solar Powered Smart Roads in 2025

Wouldn’t it be lovely to wake up one day, lets say in a major city or in an urban area in America, and just smell clean pollutant-free air? I always took breathing fresh air for granted when I was a kid growing up in the suburbs near a forest, but after college and after working […]

Welcome To Gingerville by Sacdzn.com

Hey folks happy holidays to you all! I thought I’d share what a local development and design studio shared with me last week. It’s a game called “Welcome to Gingerville”. It’s as simple and mindless and addicting as they come by. And of course as a gamer I had a bit too much fun with […]

Maguire Family Crest

The History Behind The Maguire Family Crest As a labor of love I always enjoyed all things historical.
