Rebuild Nepal

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

nepal

Please join us starting at 8:00pm on 5/23 at City Winery for an event that can make a real difference to those who need it in Nepal. There are drinks, music, and all sorts of fun to be had all in an effort to help relieve the victims of the most recent natural disaster in the mountainous region.

Tickets start at $30. Bring a friend, bring ten!

ABOUT THE EVENT:

On April 25, 2015 at approximately 2 a.m. EDT, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in Nepal. Estimates indicate that more than 7,000 people have died, and more than 13,000 have been injured. Due to the devastation that we have all witnessed in Nepal, City Winery decided to put together a series of shows to help raise both awareness and money for the victims that are in need.

City Winery will be giving away 100% of all net profits from ticket sales to Revolution’s Per Minute’s “When Disaster Strikes” Fund. In the past, City Winery has been able to raise over $100,000 with similar shows raising money for victims of the BP Spill (3 nights) and for the victims of the Tsunami in Japan (3 nights) and Earthquake in Haiti.

Each artist will perform a couple of songs and special guests will be announced as they are confirmed. Dining will be available in the venue.

ABOUT THE RPM:

Managed by RPM & CDP, donations to this fund are granted to fully-vetted organizations working on-the-ground in affected communities—before, during, and long after the disaster. These groups are often best positioned to lead the rebuilding. Impact reports will be provided so you can see what your efforts accomplished.

“The Talk”

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

“The Talk” has taken away a bronze pencil at The One Show for public service/non-profit online films, well done for all those who were involved in a spot that addresses such a timely and important aspect of today’s American culture!

A LITTLE BACKGROUND:

Recently we were lucky to work with Brotherhood SisterSol, a youth organization centrally involved in reforming NYPD’s “Stop & Frisk” policies — focused on raising awareness of “The Talk” that takes place in black households across America. The centerpiece of the “Talk About The Talk” campaign is a PSA that portrays several intimate conversations between Black parents and their children about how to avoid potentially dangerous police encounters—but ends with a white father reminding his teenage son that police officers are there to help.

The spot is meant to draw attention to the dichotomy between how different communities experience interaction with law enforcement in this country, and ultimately asks, “Do we want one America, or two?”

The goal was for viewers and those moved by the piece to share and engage in a positive national discussion about race and equal treatment under the law, about respect and fairness using the hashtag #TalkAboutTheTalk.

ABOUT THE ONE SHOW:

The One Club exists to champion and promote excellence in advertising and design in all its forms. It is the world’s foremost non-profit organization devoted to elevating creative work in the industry. It seeks to celebrate the legacy of creative advertising and to use that legacy to inspire future generations. The One Club is the ‘keeper of the flame’ for advertising creatives.

The One Show aims to be considered the pinnacle of achievement by providing a showcase of the world’s best work, and by inviting collaboration among individuals who are actively developing outstanding work.

Jay “Jury” Benjamin

Friday, May 15th, 2015

As we are moving along towards the halfway point of the calendar year, the picture surrounding the best advertising work of 2015 has begun to become a little more clear, and award ceremonies like Cannes and LIA are gearing up to judge and announce their winners.

Part of that process is creating a jury fit to judge the work of thousands of agencies and individuals worldwide, and we couldn’t be more proud to see creative star, Jay Benajmin join the Integration Jury for the 2015 London International Awards.

“An idea is only integrated if it impacts society and integrates itself into culture. It evolves based on the interaction of the people and the different touch points. Integration is Innovation, Influence and Impact”, and Jay along with the rest of the jury are looking forward to viewing this year’s best work in that light.

ABOUT LIA:

LIA (formerly known as London International Advertising Awards) is a worldwide Award annually honoring legends, pioneers, and embodiments of excellence in Advertising, Digital, Production, Design, Music & Sound and Technology. It was the first truly international award of its kind to acknowledge all media from all over the world to be judged by a diverse global jury. In 2004, the word “Advertising” was removed from the competition’s name to reflect the fact that it observes more than just “advertising” in an ever-changing industry. Barbara Levy, Founder of LIA has also been the Awards President, since its inception in 1986.

The Awards began by honouring advertising in the realms of Cinema, Television, Print, and Radio internationally. LIA now honors 15 unique media types: Billboard, Branded Entertainment, Design, Digital, Integration, Music & Sound, Music Video, Non-Traditional, Package Design, Poster, Print, Production & Post-Production, Radio & Audio, The NEW and TV/Cinema/Online Film.

Some of you may already be aware of the awesome opportunity Shaleen Sahay (@Shaybotz) and Fiona Harris (@feeefeeeee) are experiencing at the moment called Saatchi Switch. Along the lines of a “parent trap” story line, Fiona and Shaleen have switch cities, jobs, friends, loved ones, apartments…well not really…but they have switched cities and are getting to experience what it is like to work in different Saatchi offices around the world.

We love having Fiona here, and miss Shaleen, but we can at least keep track of their awesome adventures via Instagram. Check out some of the highlights of their trips so far, and be sure to ask around if you want to be a part of Saatchi Switch in the future!

Predicting Greatness

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

If you are like millions of people around the world, you paid the $100 fee and were a little disappointed by the highest paid athletes in the world. Yet the 6 year anticipation leading up to this fight was almost too much to resist. Besides the sponsors and the logos plastered on the boxing shorts of Manny Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather advertising may have played an even more crucial role in making this bout finally come together.

Many may remember Foot Locker’s “Week of Greatness” advertisements where Manny mistook tow gym-goer’s conversation as confirmation that he will finally get the opportunity to fight Mayweather. As a cultural point of interest, this set off demands for the fight bringing the idea forward in the consciousness of the general public once again, and can be attributed (if in a minor sense) with making the fight happen.

Check out this article on Sporting News for exactly what lead up to the fight, and why Saatchi helped make it happen.
