The real "level-up" pizza box

If you've been watching a lot of American Idol these days I'm sure you've seen the Greenwich Pizza "level-up" commercials. Aside from the "level-up" situations, it also promotes the new pizza box design. If only the Greenwich guys  saw this video first then it would really be a level-up.

Literal Corporate Cliches


We've all heard the corporate cliches trickled down to us by corporate America and from the long list, we've grown accustomed to using some (let's park this) and hating some (lets table this). 

Recently I stumbled upon the results of a British survey about the most annoying office jargon (complete article here) and I remembered that Pau and I had a special shots in Thailand with the same theme. Can you guess which cliche goes with the image?


lets cross the bridge when we get there

Lusting for a mini that tells you where to go

So, you think the N97 was all that? Check out the mini version below. Sometimes videos like these activate my gadget lust more than 30 second tv commercials.



Still not convinced? Maybe this Navigation video will change your mind. This is free locally covering a whole range of models. I've tried it on my N86. It feels so high-tech haha.

BrandCamp: 6 Types of Ideas


Interesting. I can't say I've done them all but I wonder if the Phoenix type really exists. Are there any brave marketers out there willing to sacrifice resources to "fail fast in order to succeed"?  If there are then I wana be your friend =D

On the Eureka type, I find most of my ideas coming to me minutes before I fall asleep. Certainly not in the shower and definitely not in the loo (I know some people get great ideas while taking a crap). It can be frustrating for me sometimes because your mind is super active and you tell yourself you'll keep it in your head. Sometimes, just to get it out of my head, I type in a draft SMS and send it first thing in the morning (that way they'll be like "galing! pinagisipan mo talaga all night!"

Collective and Peace Treaty might just be the opposite of Eureka. Your idea, if the group collectively agrees to it, becomes the idea of the whole group. Good or bad. If its a good idea the whole group parties, if it turns out to be bad, they blame it all on you (lazy shitheads). 

Well, whatever the type of idea you come up with, it's always good to have a mental challenge. The worst thing you can do to yourself is give up on creativity.

Loving the Havaianas box



Super delayed post. 


After deliberately staying away from Havaianas the past couple of years, I finally got my first pair while in Boracay right before the new year.  Honestly, I don't see the point of regular Havs (because it really looks and feels like regular tsinelas) compared to Flojos (winner texture) or Dopies (weird design and comfort). The only reason why I got em was because I needed an extra pair (having brought only my Flojos).

Anyway, enough with the defensiveness. This post is actually about the box and not the product (weh!). Check this out.


Unassuming box for tsinelas


BATH WAIT! was dat sign???




TADAH!


Call me a packaging sucker but I loved it :)
