Nokia: Great Pockets


Not one but two campaigns from Nokia and FarFar this month.

This one, promotion the Nokia N95, titled Great Pockets showcases Henry Needle & Sons - Bespoke tailored plus sized pocket fashion for the mobile multimedia gadget lifestyle. Again great use of video (I love the transitions after clicking no thanks) and great talent. All wrapped up into an original and funny concept.

We also have a Myspace page, a Flickr account and youtube videos. Although I'm unsure as to what purpose the Myspace page serves as there isn't really anything on it. Could be SEO?

What makes this site work is the integration of the product and the call to action to win. You win a Nokia N95 and your friend receives a pair of great pockets.

Banner Mobile


How better to show your love of the medium than to get a personalised licence plate. Banners can't be doing that good for this person if they are driving a Toyota Seca.

Taschen's: Advertising Now: Online

While there is a plethora of books on every form of advertising there is little concentrating on online. I have ordered the book above in the hope of seeing a few goodies I can post up here. Luckily the book comes with a DVD which might help save me time aswell.

Nokia: The Internet Walk


I really like this site for the new Nokia N800 called The Internet Walk. The execution is flawless and it works well to sell the features of the handset. It has one strong idea and works it well. No need to complicate it too much just explore the idea to its fullest.

Farfar did the site and have done lots of nice work in the past.

Oh and I love the loud voice at the start "LOADING THE INTERNET"
It'd be great if this kind of narration occured all the time.

Oh and there was also a "viral video" to go with the campaign. (i prefer my viral with people getting kicked in the nuts.)

Dear ,

welcome to another issue of the Bannerblog newsletter. We realise the sporadic nature of these emails is leaves something to be desired but we ensure you a system is in place now to ensure regular updates.

If you didn't notice already we have a new sponsor. Tangozebra have stepped up to support the site for 2007. Without their support the site could not function. Martin Pavey from TZ has also joined the editorial team.

Award Season
We are looking forward to the award season with Cannes and One Show prejudging beginning soon. If you are on the judging panel or have access to a list of entries we would love to be privy to it. Don't worry we won't tell anyone ;)

Also there's no better way to pre-test your work before spending money on entry fees. So submit your work to Bannerblog today.


Not many banners provide this much depth and humour.

We can't decide which rocks more. The VW or this banner.

Soap Creative[AU]
Roll-Ups (Uncle Tobys)

Sure Ashley's agency made the site and he also edited this issue of the email but that aside the new Frubalia site for Uncle Toby's Roll-Ups is pretty special.

Let's just hope the kids brush their teeth.
