  1. Spooky new campaign from


    Brilliant new campaign for hotels over Halloween, anyone thinking of going away? has created a Halloween-themed campaign, which focuses on a selection of hotels in the US that are all supposedly haunted. The attention to detail is what makes this campaign really stand out, from the beautiful poster design to the tagline, ‘Stay if you dare’. The campaign created by Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam has its own website where bookings can be made. Visitors can also find information about the individual hotels, the ghosties that reside there and even download the hotel posters, which have been designed to look like horror movie advertising. To add authenticity, W+K approached renowned movie-poster illustrator Akiko Stehrenberger to create the works. Here are a selection of them.

  2. Elmgreen and Dragset, Tomorrow


    Last week, I went to the V&A to check out the new and brilliant Elmgreen and Dragset exhibition tucked away in the Costumes and Drama section. The concept is similar to the current trend in immersive and interactive plays and performances such as Punchdrunk or Secret Cinema, but with one major difference – there is no progress but a suspension of time in which you are free to explore. The installation is set up like a large period house and references a script (which you pick up at the entrance) where a failing pompous architect has been declared bankrupt and his former student has bought his home. The detail in the set is immaculate with extra elements to the whole story only becoming apparent through exploration and through consulting the ‘Butlers’, who are in character. It's probably worth going a couple of times for relatively long periods in order to explore the space fully.
