A new museum called Poster House, the first American museum devoted exclusively to posters, opened in New York City at the end of this June. The museum’s collection also features Well raised fish”, a work of Bruketa&Žinić&Grey team for Cromaris. The purpose of Cromaris’ posters is to send a message that Cromaris fish, due to exceptional attention paid to fish breeding in the clean Adriatic Sea, is truly “well raised fish”.

Poster House has a collection of about seven thousand historical posters from across the globe, and a growing number of new pieces stored in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood in a space of ca. 15,000 m2. The collection includes the works by Milton Glaser, the creator of I ❤ NY logo, and Shephard Fairey, the designer behind Barack Obama’s Hope poster.

The posters will be pulled from the collection for thematic exhibitions to be held every few months. Julia Knight, the museum director, said for The New York Times that the museum is mandated to show non-Western and female-centered designs every single year.

The Poster House’s website indicates that the museum celebrates the ubiquitous poster medium showcasing its global history and craftsmanship of its design. For Vanity Fair, Ms. Knight said that posters are trying to persuade us, whether it’s to vote in a certain way, or to think of a product or idea in a certain way. “We don’t want to be an art museum. Even though there is clear artistry and beauty here, we still consider this design,” she said.

Poster House is the brainchild of Val Crosswhite, who developed this idea for several years collecting posters from the 19th century onwards. The poster collection explores mass communication and persuasion, the intersection of art and commerce, and control of the public domain.

By Siniša Waldinger

We all know pharma ads are boring. This is mostly because regulations and overly-scientific approach kill creativity. Since creativity is proven to increase marketing effectiveness, how can pharma communication be more creative and thus effective?

1. Ask yourself the key question most brands ask themselves today – what are we here to do in cultural terms? What is the point of our business beyond making money?

Grey Moscow and Bruketa&Žinić&Grey developed a bag with Cardbeast that you can use for paying Thu, 13 Jun 2019 11:11:59 +0000

Cardbeast has recently launched a prototype called PayBag — a collection of technological bags, which can help users to pay for their purchases even faster and to take care of nature at the same time. The Mastercard Contactless payment chip is built into each bag so that payments can be done without pulling the wallet or smartphone out. This project was developed for Cardbeast with Grey Moscow and their partners were Bruketa&Žinić&Grey and Mastercard.

Despite the growth of environmental awareness, changes towards conscious consumption in consumer behavior are very slow. For example, only 5% of shoppers intentionally choose reusable bags while 64,7% continue to buy disposable bags on daily basis. A research revealed that the main switching barrier is the contradiction between sustainability and convenience. In other words, the fact that sustainable consumer behavior sets limits on comfort, aesthetics, ease and quickness of the experience.

To promote conscious consumption, Cardbeast decided not to encourage people to change their behavior, but to make sustainable shopping more attractive as an experience. To achieve that, they launched the PayBag® prototype collection — an all-in-one solution which makes shopping more sustainable AND more enjoyable.

Paying with PayBag® is easier and faster than using cash and plastic cards. In contrast to disposable bags, it can be used for years and doesn’t pollute the environment after that. Unlike ordinary reusable shopping bags (which people actually forget to bring with them at 40% of shopping trips), it remains in your pocket all the time — because you can’t go shopping without everything you need to do it.

Brand designers have developed a convenient technological solution: when folded, the novelty easily fits into a pocket, and when needed unfolds into a full bag. All bags are made of 100% recycled plastic and are presented in four versions, corresponding to the four types of cards of the partner bank. PayBag® prototype launched in support of conscious consumption and to help people to say no to disposable bags – one of the most common types of plastic waste. Pre-orders are available here.

Mobile app as champion of literacy Thu, 25 Apr 2019 14:39:46 +0000

A1 Lappsus teaches users how to avoid grammar errors in Croatian language when unlocking their mobile device, and rewards their knowledge with additional megabytes.

Owners of Android mobile devices view their phone screen on average even up to 150 times a day. At the same time, reducing the spelling and grammar errors in everyday life is a constant challenge.

That is why A1 Croatia launched the new mobile app A1 Lappsus to turn the habit of frequent checking of the phone into an opportunity to learn correct use of the Croatian language. The app was created in cooperation with Marko Alerić, an associate professor from the Department of Croatian Language and Literature at the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb.

“Spelling and grammar are best taught by constant exercises, and the mobile phone is something that is always with us and we often use it, so why not use it as a tool? We put the most common spelling and grammatical errors into the app, in order to give users a chance to practice on a daily basis,” said Marko Alerić.

At each third unlocking of the screen, the app gives a spelling question with two possible responses, and for each correct answer the user gets extra data traffic. Through rewards for correct answers, A1 users can gain up to 1 GB of data traffic per month.

The database of 500 grammatical and spelling questions within the app is constantly updated and refreshed, and though intended for the younger population, it can be useful to everyone. The app is available for all Android users and can be downloaded for free in the Google Play Store.
