The Metamorphosis of Osdorp

Love this beautiful animation/film created by the guy’s of +1 Amsterdam. Not completely new techniques and it has a very MTV-ish feel to it, but still … very nicely executed.

The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. PlusOne was asked to create the video.

What drives us

Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us.
This animation, adapted from DAN PINK’S talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace. The RSA (the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), has been a cradle of enlightenment thinking and a force for social progress for over 250 years.

I’ve seen this talk a while back but this animated version makes it a lot more entertaining and more digestible for visual-oriented people like me ;-)

THX Rudy Snippe for bringing it to my attention!

Bottled water, the new oil #2

I’ve reported about the paradox of bottled water before in the post Bottled water, the new oil.
There is something strange about water in a bottle. You have the feeling to be buying a pure and clean ’source’ product, which is healthier and cleaner than ordinary tap water. But the opposite is the truth. Here’s 2 other examples explaining why bottled water is in fact a environmental disaster. (If watching the video consumes too much time for you, just stick to the info graphic, it basically tells the same story).
This film is from the creators of ‘the story of stuff‘, also a very nice film that’ll make you think about how we produce and consume.

The Story of Bottled Water, was released on March 22, 2010 on World Water Day

The result can be watched on this website. Coalition of the Willing is an, as the creators cal it, ‘animated film about an online war against global warming in a post-Copenhagen world.’
Good initiative with an interesting visual outcome.

The smel of water

Italian fashion brand Replay comes with a fragrance line for man and women. That’s nothing new, witch fashion brand doesn’t have its own fragrance? But there are 2 special things about this one. The product itself and the communication design around the brand.

The product concept is that in the morning you spray on the fragrance and during the rest of the day, you can refresh it by dropping a drop of water on your skin and the fragrance is instantly revitalized.

And then there is the design of the website and commercial I completely fell in love with. Great job how the concept of the product is translated in the communication.
