An Early Dawn for London, Courtesy Tropicana – AdAge

As part of its “Brighter Mornings” campaign, Tropicana made the sun rise an hour early in Trafalgar Square, London.

A giant artificial sun with the power of 60,000 light bulbs lit up the area at 6:51 a.m. Monday, an art installation commissioned by the juice brand. The “sun,” with a surface area of 200 square meters and weighing more than 2,500 kilograms, provided four million lumens of light.

Installation artists Greyworld said the piece would be visible from space.

Vodafone: Buffer Busters – Creativity Online

Game on.

Swedish agency North Kingdom asks consumers to capture and kill “buffer” monsters for Vodafone Germany. Here’s how it works: The app shows you where buffer monsters — those nasty little things that slow everything down — are located. Once you’re there, you use the augmented reality function on the app to find them and capture them. When your holding cell is full, march on over to a Vodafone store and empty it. In exchange, you get points and badges. The best buffer busters could win three lifetime plans from the phone company.

The idea reinforces Vodafone’s status as the fastest network in Germany.

JWT Melbourne introduces a literary innovation with Wi-Fiction at Melbourne Writers Festival – Campaign Brief

JWT Melbourne has launched a world-first digital literary innovation at the Melbourne Writers Festival, using Wi-Fi networks to bring short stories to the mobile devices of unsuspecting festival goers.

Called Wi-Fiction, the initiative was created as part of JWT’s brief from Melbourne Writers Festival to make stories more accessible to the public.

Powering Wi-Fiction is ‘Router Writer’, a box full of wireless routers, placed at the epicentre of the week-long festival at Federation Square Atrium.

When the public tried to browse the internet on their smartphone or tablet devices, they were shown a list of Wi-Fi network names which created the Wi-Fiction stories.

Says JWT Melbourne executive creative director Richard Muntz: “Wi-Fiction is a new genre and medium of storytelling which, for the first time, uses Wi-Fi networks as a communication medium. Router Writer was an innovative and ingeniously simple way of bringing the stories to life.”

The Audi Design Project

And now we cut the ribbon
By Audi of America on July 13, 2011 8:26 AM
This is a day we’ve been looking forward to for some time. It began with a simple notion that a boldly designed car, like the all-new Audi A7, deserved to drive in a more boldly designed world. To us, that wasn’t just a catchy slogan on a billboard. It was something bigger. A mission. That we could take the same approach to design and innovation and apply it to the world beyond our cars. And that’s exactly what we set out to do when we partnered with the city of San Francisco and the Union Square Business Improvement District to transform two of the most popular blocks in the city to create a better pedestrian experience. On Wednesday, July 13, executives from Audi joined Mayor Edwin M. Lee and representatives from the city and community to cut the ribbon and officially unveil the new Powell Street Promenade.

For those of you who haven’t been following along, we invited renowned architect Walter Hood to design a space that was not only inspired by the Audi A7, but also used the same materials. The result is a space constructed almost entirely from aluminum, inspired by the Audi ASF® frame. The sculpting of the furniture recalls the car’s dynamic lines. Solar towers reflect our company’s strong commitment to efficient and sustainable design solutions by powering our signature LEDs, which have become streetlights. And finally, the high-speed Wi-Fi is something we’ve introduced in our cars as well. In the end, we hope people will experience and interact with Powell Street in a whole new way. It’s a fitting tribute to a city that shares our spirit of progress.
