Nanas are awesome. They are fearless and have a relaxed yet incisive sense of humour. This one in particular, is also very demanding about her bandages. Indeed, like all of us, Nana wants no dirt to make its way through it. Find out how far this Nana is willing to go to put her bandage to the test!

Don’t worry. No Nanas were hurt during the production of this video – or at least we certainly hope not!

Volkswagen. Made for real life!| Video of the Week

16.06.2014, 10:09

Definitely not made for Hollywood!

In a thrilling sequence worthy of the best Hollywood movies two prisoners hijack a bull full of people. Immediately, police run to the scene and chase the hijacked bus with the objective of saving the victims of such atrocious crime. An action hero detective is soon in the scene and is ready to jump to the bus to face the criminals. Unfortunately for those in the bus, what looks like an action-packed movie ends rather abruptly, as there is a tiny little problem with the “Safe Distance Technology” Volkswagen. ;)

Better hope the police has very good negotiators!

You never know what the day may bring

What do you do when you find a card holder full of random business cards. Well, if you are an actor in a Heineken spot, one who really liked the girl who left the holder in the taxi, you obviously go to each and every single one of the places in the business cards to find her. We are sure this guy did not expect all the action he would find hidden in his city.

Got to give it to them. Heineken’s marketing department comes up with amazingly cool videos. Take a look and judge by yourself.

And hey! What do you think? Is your city full of these hidden eccentricities?

30 black-and-white logos that are convincing as achromatic version

21.05.2014, 11:16

The power of a good contrast

A logo must always work in its black-and-white version. The reason? Simple. So it gives a good image of your company in faxes, photocopies and printed material rather than just on high-quality print.

The opposite, however, is also a challenge. Making B&W logos look as good as coloured ones in high quality print is not an easy thing. B&W logos must come with clean lines and clear surfaces because they must stand out from the rest without the support of colors.
