Colenso develops innovative skateboard deck for Mountain Dew, hopes to capitalise on IP

Colenso BBDO has partnered with Mountain Dew to develop a novel range of skateboard decks that reveal a hidden message as the skater grinds away the bottom. And what makes this project even more interesting is that Colenso owns a share of the IP that comes with the innovation, meaning that the agency could stand to profit if the concept attracts interest from players in the skating industry (production company Finch officially owns the IP and Colenso shares in it).

We wish you a merry Axis: CAANZ keeps the changes rolling with new dates and categories

After a fairly controversial 2012, CAANZ and a bunch of senior ad folk engineered a few big changes to this year's Axis proceedings to make the awards, as Colenso BBDO's Nick Garrett said, a more collegial, more credible and more celebratory event that aimed to show the business community how influential creativity could be. And now CAANZ has announced some more changes to the programme for 2014.
