See into the future with AdSchool show off session

The Media Design School AdSchool (formerly Axis) End Of Year Show is on tonight from 5.30 until 8pm at the new building at 92 Albert Street. And they want you industry juggernauts to sit down in front of the fresh-faced students, grunt a bit, leaf through a few pages and then decisively and/or contemptuously slap down a special sticker or two before wafting off again in the direction of the bar.

 Media Design School pair take a bullet for the team

DDB was recently crowned the YoungGuns agency of the year (primarily on the strength of the Sky Arts Channel campaign) and Media Design School is also beaming, with recent Adschool graduates Ed Knowles, frontman of Kiwi band The Checks (wanna see a cool music video?) and Charles Twaddle taking home a Silver Bullet for ‘Reflections’, an ambient outdoor advertising campaign that plays on famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House for HSBC.

What happens when one man wants to save it and the other doesn’t? Not only is this based on a startling true story, but the CG animated short film version, Poppy, has won two top awards at the SIGGRAPH 2010 Computer Animation Festivals.

Media Design School ranked world's fourth best by YoungGuns

More proof, if any were needed, that New Zealand is still hitting it out of the park when it comes to creativity in advertising after the Adschool at Auckland’s Media Design School was named the fourth best (a very good position, as DDB's Moro campaign shows) advertising school of the decade on account of the gongs its students have taken home in the first ten years of the YoungGuns Awards.

DDB gloats, Porter shines and headline malarkey ensues at NAB ad of the year awards

For the second year in a row, DDB walked away with a cool $10,000 after the Sky Arts Channel Mark Rothco spot took out the Newspaper Ad of the Year prize last week (this Throaties spot won the 2009 edition). And the highlight of the night—aside, of course, from the big grand finale announcement, the delectable nibbles and the burly guard who was keeping watch over the silver briefcase on the table that was filled with $10,000 cash—had to be the Q+A video with Chuck Porter, the convenor of judges at this year's event and co-founder of award-hogging US ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
