(Digital) Retail trends 2015

The trends all focus mainly on how digital is offering new opportunities, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting.

As always there is a lot of good stuff in Cannes. I’m not gonna post Grand Prixs, because every one has seen those (I assume..). But here are three other winners that I really like.

Killing Kennedy

It may seem a little flat, but what makes it a winner to me is the flawless design and what seems like a very smooth flow. A very nice experience – and educational!



The new creatives

This just looks too fucking cool. That’s it. (This is not the Cannes case, but still a nice video – check out the Cannes video here)



Racer – A Google Chrome experiment
I’ll include this because I love Google Chrome experiments. And it looks like fun.

Trace – stop-frame slickness

Well, here’s a pretty awesome project. The social effort scale. It helps you determine if you (or you’re friends) are trying too hard to be social (online that is). Kudos for the very thorough and well-executed project!

Axe – Social effort scale

The worlds most innovative companies 2014 is not only an interesting read, it is also a reminder of just how god damn beautiful the design of fastcompany.com is.

Fast Company is beautiful and interesting

I gotta say I’m a big fan of Google Streetview. Especially when they do things like mapping a small deserted island. It’s that Japanese one that was the worlds most densely populated area, but now is the loneliest place on earth (-ish). Bonus info: it was used in Skyfall. Very cool project.

Streetview when it’s best

This is a clever use of the fast food tray and mobile gaming. It’s simple, (relatively) well-made, and based on an insight (albeit a very common one). Plus I love the idea of making a ball by tearing a piece of the paper (my old AD partner actually had this exact idea for a print ad). All in all, I really like it!


Gamifying your fast food tray

This is pretty interesting (I think, I’m no tech expert). A message that can only be seen by holding your phone in front of the screen (no app). Plus I love that it is so custom made that they actually got a patent!

Weird and hilarious correlations

This is just too damn interesting. Random things that correlates. If you work at an agency in the US, you have to use this for something (most figures are from the US). Go check out the site, where you can both see random things or choose whatever you wanna correlate (like movies with Nicolas Cage or US consumption of margarine).
