 “Push to add drama” TNT ad receives over 20 million views on official video

“Push to add drama” TNT ad receives over 20 million views on official video

This was a very well produced and crafted film, that was brilliantly executed. As a result I suspect its success will not be easily replicated - in much the same way that it is not easy to replicate the success of the Grand Prix winners at the likes of Cannes and D&AD (festivals where I suspect we will see this work feature).

Inflating the Facebook bubble with Instagram

Truly an astonishing deal; can't help wondering how this valuation was arrived at. A great app no dount - but worth $1billion? Just can't see it - for my money I'd rather own the New York Times!

@David73561 I could not agree more, and in fairness this is what i think the Decoded course is all about; planting that seed.

@6800099767 sorry if the end of the article irked. The simple point I was trying to reinforce is that by not taking the time to understand the basic principles of coding those who commission websites are missing out on a lot of opportunity in terms of shaping the final outcome. But just to be clear I believe the reason that this sector is now so exciting is exactly because it is attracting the best engineers, mathematicians and others once called geeks. But just as creativity should not stop at the creative door, coding should not be the exclusive domain of the web team.
