New York City Photo Series #3 – Corner of Rivington & Essex – Timelapse
|| 10/8/2008 || 1:45 pm || Comments Off on New York City Photo Series #3 – Corner of Rivington & Essex – Timelapse || ||

This week I am posting photos from New York City that took last weekend.

The photograph above was taken from the 6th floor window of Hotel Rivington in the Lower East Side using a 15 second timelapse.

My Blaeu map to be featured in an upcoming magazine advertisement
|| 9/8/2008 || 11:41 pm || Comments Off on My Blaeu map to be featured in an upcoming magazine advertisement || ||

Today I mailed a copy of one of my favorite maps to a company that intends on using the map for an upcoming advertisement. I can’t post too many details until the advertisement has been completed, but I intend on posting the photos when they become available. It should look awesome :-)



QR Code on display at the Ralph Lauren store in Georgetown
|| 9/5/2008 || 11:51 pm || Comments Off on QR Code on display at the Ralph Lauren store in Georgetown || ||

Tonight I went to the Adidas store in Georgetown because my friend DECOY was celebrating her birthday and another friend was DJing. After parking my bicycle down the street (Georgetown doesn’t have many bicycle locks), I noticed the sign outside of the Ralph Lauren store. This sighting marks the first time I’ve seen a QR Code in Washington, DC. I decided to snap a picture of it to see if I could decode on my computer and below the fold you can see the results:

Experimenting with Facebook’s advertisement system [part 3 – Twenty Phantom Women]
|| 5/17/2008 || 4:45 pm || Comments Off on Experimenting with Facebook’s advertisement system [part 3 – Twenty Phantom Women] || ||

Who would have thought that there were 20 phantom women who are between 26 & 28 that exist somewhere between Washington, DC and the District of Columbia?

I’d sure like to meet one of those ladies.

It should be noted that the Facebook entry for DC is missing the definite article, as in “the District of Columbia.” Currently it dsnt reed rite.

Facebook ad showing a link to my Geospatial Art on-line store

Screengrab from Facebook showing my advertisement being served
___names whited out___

On Monday evening I noticed that Facebook was promoting it’s internal advertisement system on my notification panel. As a curious person I decided to check it out and see why I receive so many stupid ads for dating websites. I remember reading a long time ago that at the height of MySpace’s popularity their servers had trouble keeping up with the demand of the user traffic, and while those times have passed, Facebook seems like a clear alternative for social marketing.

So what should I link to? This blog or my on-line store? I chose the on-line store because if I am paying money for a service I might as well get some money back. I also don’t actively promote the store because it’s become too cumbersome to manage and I haven’t added any new maps in ages.

But what to specifically link to? This is where is gets fun.

GPS Drawing in the new Mercedes advertisement
|| 4/11/2008 || 7:41 pm || Comments Off on GPS Drawing in the new Mercedes advertisement || ||

GPS Drawing

GPS Drawing was created by Hugh Pryor and Jeremy Wood. This artform involves the use of a GPS device to record people’s movements on the surface of the earth. It works on the premise that as one moves through their day, the GPS device continuously records (or tracks) the exact coordinates of the owner. Here it has been copied by Mercedes in their newest advertisements related to their line of cars with built-in GPS devices.

Now say “Ahhhhh” — huh? At first I didn’t get the correlation between the GPS drawing and the location. The GPS drawing shown above appears to be teeth with a starting point of Paris and terminal point at Cordes sur Siel. Upon further inquiry, I found that Cordes sur Siel is home to the Musee de l’Art du Sucre. Yum!



World Vision : You can’t ignore child labor
|| 4/7/2008 || 10:29 pm || Comments Off on World Vision : You can’t ignore child labor || ||

While I am not a big fan of pervasive advertisements, I found this guerrilla marketing campaign designed by Ogilvy to be highly effective. It comes directly from the same vein as Amnesty International’s award-winning campaign “It’s Not Happening Here But It’s Happening Now.” However, instead of being merely a billboard campaign, this iteration is interactive. As one pushes the revolving door, they are trapped between two photographs of child laborers also pushing the door. Above each the child is the text “You can’t ignore child labor – www.kinderarbeid.nl[kinderarbeid= child labor]

Watch the video to get the idea:

The M&M’s of Australia say Vote Green
|| 2/12/2008 || 12:27 pm || Comments Off on The M&M’s of Australia say Vote Green || ||

An ad agency’s portrayal of the Green M&M

This subvertisement is from an Australian M&M advertisement campaign. I’ve seen the same type of campaign done in America, however this campaign employs revolutionary iconography to sell the colors.

Today, however, I didn’t vote for a corporation, instead I voted in the D.C. Statehood Green Party Primary for Cynthia McKinney.
