The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo

The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 0 The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 1 The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 2 The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 3 The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 4 The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo 5

Such a cool shelter!
The Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo is part of a series of shelters spread around Bordeaux. The original idea was to create a hiking path all around the city, connecting waste land, parks and forests, letting everyone spend a short holiday short holidays in their own neighborhood while exploring the area.

The Tronc Creux features an undulating facade of cut-out windows and black wooden details marking its exterior, the structure is atypical to most mountain refuges. However, it still provides a similar atmosphere and purpose, and on the interior there is enough space to sleep for 9 people. Reconnecting to a simple life, there are no lights and no water, just family and friends in a peaceful setting.

The Snapchat Pitch by DDB Oslo

The Snapchat Pitch by DDB Oslo 1 The Snapchat Pitch by DDB Oslo 2

DDB Oslo sure targets the young people with their campaign “The Snapchat Pitch“. And by the way – Snapchat is now bigger in Norway than Instagram. So they sure are up to something.

It’s super simple: A truly great idea can be explained in less than 10 second. So use Snapchat and send your idea to DDB Oslo.

I don’t get the “The whole Creative Department will watch your snap chat” though… Unless of course someone is recording every snap chat as they are being watched. Nevertheless, this idea is interesting.

This video made me smile!

What happens when you gather a group of children and ask them what they’re going to do when they retire? What would it look like if you then asked the kid’s grandparents to reenact their responses? Check out this video, starring actual Erickson Living residents and their grandchildren, to find out.

WHO: The Digital Donor Card

World Health Organization - The Digital Donor Card 1 World Health Organization - The Digital Donor Card 2

This awesome idea is created by Pete Ashworth and Carl Ejlers - two talented  students from Creative Communication, DMJX, in Denmark. And who I know, because I was a guest lecture in Digital Media a year and a half ago.

Their idea is about having a digital donor card, pre-installed on your smartphone, so it can be filled in or edited whenever and wherever you feel the urge.

It’s a Bees Awards nominee 2013 in the category ‘Best student work’. Great job, guys!!

View from the skies. All the way from France, through Belgium, Holland, Germany, and home to Denmark.

This is the reason for the silence on the blog this past week. I went to the conference and festival South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas once again. This year I only went for Interactive though. And not Music and Film, as I did last year.

Yet again it was an explosion of inputs. Wherever you are, there’s cool and interesting people around you. It’s hard to choose which session to go to, because the amount of interesting topics is major. I always try to go to some, that are not the obvious choice for my field – to get another kind of inspiration, than what I usually get. If I only went to the obvious ones, we could all just sit there and agree – and not really feel that we received anything from it.
