Brilliant new ad for Toshiba by The Mill. How did they do this? I am still trying to wrap my head around this one. It looks like multiple passes with a bullet-time camera setup.

  • There’s actually a making of video on youtube. And you are pretty much correct.

    Really good advert.

  • I loved this as soon as I saw it on televsion.
    …and I love crystal castles.

    amazing ad.

  • Making of that adam speaks of

    I kinda like it, but it seems like after the Bravia ads, everyone should try something else. This feels like an evolution of the Sony ads, but with a Feist video put in the blender.

  • This ad is incredible. I have just got the song for the ad too. Very boppy ^^

  • That was fun. Disagree with comparison to the Sony ads. What made those cool was the scale of what was being done. So many bouncy balls, paint all over a city, and rabbit claymation. This happens in a room with no emphasis on color, which was the main focus of the Bravia ads.

  • The Sony Bravia ads are far superior in my opinion but yea, as brian said – i don’t see too much relation to this Toshiba spot.

    For the record, the Bravia ad with the bouncing balls in San Fran with the Jose Gonzalez music is possibly the best ad that will ever be made.

    This one was probably made for a fraction of the budget.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
