Given the name of this blog it seems only fitting to collate this mini series of videos commissioned by D&AD where they asked respected creatives which work from the global advertising community in 2013 had made them think ‘I wish I’d done that’. Here’s their selection.
Digital – Iain Tate, Executive Creative Director, Google Labs chose Philips Hue light bulbs and their online service If This Then That (IFTT)
Advertising – Dan Wieden, Chairman, Wieden & Kennedy chose Barton F Graf 9000’s Climate Name Change campaign
Film Craft – Rankin chose Matthew Frost’s Fashion Film for Viva Vena.
Design – Jessica Walsh, Partner at Design Studio, Sagmeister & Walsh chose Experimental Jetset’s identity for the Whitney Museum.
