IBM Smarter Planet Outcomes Posters

A year ago, IBM launched the Smarter Planet campaign, suggesting that by making the world’s systems smarter, many of its problems can be faced in completely new ways. But what actually happens when the planet gets smarter? Profits rise. Energy gets saved. Savings get made. Lives get saved. Systems and cities start to work. This new campaign shows the evidence of smart things happening round the world. The outcomes of building a smarter planet are drawn out in this print advertising campaign from Ogilvy France and Dutch Uncle London. Chicken Lips, Bino Wheels, Train Cases, Neck Tie, Pig Plate and Hold Up have been shortlisted for poster design at the London International Awards.

There are 12 of these posters so check them out at The Inspiration Room.

Why’d we do this? All to get people in the mood for Petaluma Whiskerino & Crafterino this Saturday, October 9th. Are you growing to be there?

This Goatee-and-Ear-Plug combo is actually from the face of the CamStache developer, Malcolm Wilson.

Petaluma Whiskerino: ‘Beardo Optico’ Video

Every year gentlemen far and near seek new ways to gain an edge in the great Petaluma Whiskerino beard and moustache contest. Some even turn to beard “Fibering.” A practice frowned upon by judges for reasons of ethics and risk. Watch what happens when I dabble in this forbidden-follicled art.
