I was working on the design of this blog over the weekend… I’m already a little frustrated with the template/design limitations of Blogger (not to mention my own limitations when it comes to HTML)… but a friend came over to offer some advice – actually in retrospect we didn’t get very far, BUT he did show me this fantastic ad by US outfit Brand New School.

Can’t quite figure them out.. I guess they’re a production company / post production house (?)… details details. Anyway, their ad for the AMEX Plum card is so cute you gotta watch it.

LOVE the overhead photography
LOVE the kitschy colours
LOVE the retro styling (the pull-out with those little flags on the US map? Wes Anderson would be proud)
LOVE the snappy editing

please watch it.
