Renault Goes Groovy in Stunning Film for Twingo – Video – Creativity Online

Renault Goes Groovy in Stunning Film for Twingo

Artists Kuntzel+Deygas Create Fun Animated Tale

Publicis Conseil tapped French graphic artists Kuntzel + Deygas to create this stunning animated film promoting Renault’s mini vehicle, the Twingo.

The duo, known for their gorgeous graphics and film titles such as that for Steven Spielberg’s “Catch Me If You Can,” bring retro flair to the “Go Anywhere, Go Everywhere” spot. It shows a Twingo manuevering through dazzling cityscapes and metropolitan obstacles, backed by Beck’s “Sexx Laws” track.

It’s a groovy trip that animation lovers — and Saul Bass fans — will totally dig.


One way to access our creativity | Spark Your Creativity

Recently, I’ve talked quite a bit about connecting to our creative selves. (Yes, everyone is creative!)

One way to access our creativity, I believe, is through inspiration from other amazing minds.

In honor of that, I wanted to share 10 blogs that help me get creative (this is by no means an exhaustive list), find tons of right answers and most importantly, get super-excited about the world and all there is to see.


In no particular order, they are:

1. Scoutie Girl.

This blog features interesting independent craft and design work. As their about page states, “Simply put, Scoutie Girl is the blog with a penchant for the passionately handmade.” The posts are always a lovely surprise. Topics include creative living and mindful spending.

2. Susannah Conway

Susannah is a writer and photographer who writes about everything from healing from grief to creativity to unraveling the layers of ourselves. Her photographs capture the beauty in the bits and pieces of everyday life. She also teaches an online course called Unravelling, which I’m currently taking (love it!).

On her about page, Susannah writes: “The healing path is one that never ends and it’s my hope that by sharing what I’ve learned I can help others reconnect to their own true selves, using photography as the key to unlock the door.”

3. One paragraph at a time

Maya Stein is a poet and writer. I first discovered her poetry in Patti Digh’s book Creative Is A Verb. And instantly fell in love. Here’s just the first stanza from her poem “Don’t Forget to Write.” (Her poems “To See This Clearly” and “Reluctant Poet” are must-reads, too!)

“While you are piecing together the map of your life,

stepping as nimbly as you can out of the mulch

of your thoughts, the busy traffic of your heart

while you attempt grace and magic and the blessing of

your soft surrendered kiss, while you are fathoming the stretch

you will need for the wide and rocky jungle of your own happiness,

while you are hunkering down to a piece of the dark break

and the odd, welcome relief of hunger,

don’t forget to write.”

4. 3191 Miles Apart

Stephanie and MAV, friends who live 3191 miles apart, post anything and everything on simple living and things that inspire them — and continue to inspire me.

They see their blog as more of an online magazine. You’ll find “pieces on food and drink, our homes and everyday lives, our neighborhoods and our travels.”

5. The Creative Mind

Douglas Eby writes about the psychology of creativity and creative expression here at Psych Central. Specifically, the blog explores the psychology behind “…how well or how freely people are able to express themselves creatively – both professional artists and anyone who wants to develop and express their creative abilities.”

You’ll find topics such as personal growth, depression, perfectionism and thinking. Plus, there are many interesting interviews.

6. Creative Thursday

Full-time artist Marisa created Creative Thursday because of her love of all things creative. While working at a 9 to 5 job, she felt out of touch with her creativity. So she designated one day out of the week — Thursdays — for “fun and creativity!” The blog is now in its fifth year, and continues to be a great inspiration.

7. Pia Jane Bijkerk

A stylist, photographer and author, Pia, at her blog (house), shares recipes from her “kitchen,” books from her “library,” music from her “sound studio,” and the incredible beauty of places like Sydney, Amsterdam and Paris. Her photographs are breathtaking.

8. Creature Comforts

As blogger Ez writes on her about page, “This blog is all about celebrating the tiny details that make life so amazing and looking to find beauty in the unexpected.” Creature Comforts is exactly that, and a stunning, soothing and inspiring space.

9. Bakerella

This beautiful and fun blog provides a slew of sweet inspiration with photographs of delicious-looking and unique desserts.

Even if you don’t have any interest in baking, you’ll no doubt be wowed by Bakerella’s photos and inspired by the colors and shapes of her artful treats.

10. Mary Swenson: A scrapbook

Mary is a talented photographer and writer. Her blog posts are short but include elegant, colorful and gorgeous photos along with a few thoughts on her images, some of which, I think, read like little poems.

Happy (68th) Independence Day

68வது சுதந்நிர தின நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள்
68வது சுதந்நிர தின நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள்!

68வது சுதந்நிர தின நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள்!

அன்பால், தேசங்கள் ஆயிரம் வென்றோம்.

அறிவால் சந்திராயன் செலுத்தி ‘நில’வினை நெருங்கினோம்.

மங்கள்யான் கொண்டு ‘செவ்வாய்’ சென்றடைவோம்.

நதிநீர் இணைத்து வேளாண் மிகையோடு
போக்குவரத்தும் கண்டிடுவோம்;
‘புல்லட்’ தொடர்வண்டி செய்து
தூரங்களை சுருக்கிடுவோம்;
மென்பொருள் துறையில் தன்னிறைவுகண்டு
உலக சந்தையை வென்றிடுவோம்;

கொண்டாடுவோம் சுதந்நிர தினத்தை,
இனிப்புகளோடு மட்டுமல்ல…
ஆயிரம் வளர்பிறை கனவுகளோடும்.


Burger King Brings Back Chicken Fries


Burger King Brings Back Chicken Fries | News – Advertising Age.


The product, chicken strips in fry formation, debuted in 2005 and went on to become one of the chain’s best-selling items. But they fell off the Burger King menu in 2012 as a slew of new products fought for space, Burger King Chief Marketing Officer Eric Hirschhorn said.

Fans of the product have been asking the chain to bring them back, even starting a petition, Mr. Hirschhorn said, noting that after Chicken Fries first went away, there was one tweet every 40 seconds about them. But then call for the resurrection of Chicken Fries reached critical mass after BuzzFeed published a list in January about extinct foods. After that, he said, online chatter “went from this healthy level of conversation to a huge spike in demand, and it just grew and grew.”

The campaign will be led by Code and Theory, Burger King’s digital agency. Mr. Hirschhorn said that Code and Theory is handling the digitally led campaign because the shop took their insights from handling the digital business and noted the strong demand for the reintroduction of Chicken Fries.
