School's Out for Summer!

There's been a substantial gap in the frequency of posts here but for good reason; in January I was accepted onto IAPI & DIT's Advertising & Digital Communications Postgrad. I applied for the course with a view to furthering my education and keeping pace with the rapidly changing face of advertising and the role of digital technology within the field. Semester one has ended for the summer and the course is living up to the lofty reviews from graduates, as well as my own expectations. Roll on Semester two!

Ads of Super Bowl 2012

Thanks Mashable for collating all of these. Some good, more bad unfortunately, babies and dogs can't hide a poor ad. VW, very disappointing to see them attempt to shoehorn in the Star Wars theme. Some of the better ones are the Chevrolet Mayan Apocalypse, History Channel's Swamp People, Audi's Vampires and for purely nostalgic reasons Honda's Broderick's Day-Off. None will live very long in the memory or have broken any new ground in what is the biggest commercial window in the world. Opportunities missed all round.
