Friends from Creativeland

Tangrams on Monday

Posted in Things by Saurabh Garg on 17 June, 2009

So every Monday, everyone at Creativeland gets together for a meeting. One person is made to talk about things that are close to them and everyone else contributes. And we obviously discuss other things – parties, announcements, notices etc.

So this week, Nivedita spoke about Tangrams (yes that Chinese shape puzzle that everyone has played as a kid) and did an impromptu competition. Vikram, (expected ain’t it?) won all rounds. Saurabh finished a distant second. Dhvani, Urmi and Rruta were close too. Here are few things that people made.

And here are the winners.

BTW, more about tangrams is here (wikipedia link). And a Google image search revealed few more interesting uses of tangrams (fonts, stick figures et al). Do share if you come across some interesting ones.

Go Green

For some reason hundreds of Creativelanders were spotted sporting green. And then they posed with other assorted green things.

Go Green

And since Prakash Ji couldn’t find the camera, the shoot was done by a Nokia phone. In one shift.

Creativeland at D&AD

Posted in Media by Saurabh Garg on 4 May, 2009

We got three in-books at D&AD this year. By far the best performance by any other Indian agency (afaqs report, Campaign India report). India got total of 9 in-books this time.

Our work for Eye Bank Association (in the Direct/Writing category), Indiana Motors (in Graphic Design/Stationery category) and Car Mall (in Graphic Design/Stationery category) got the in-books. Too bad we dint get a metal. May be next time? Anyways, a complete list of in-books and winners is available here on the D&AD website (pdf, 141 KB). Food for inspiration and may be some envy?
