I love creative advertising for food. For example the fun posters from Pret A Manger shows different types of fruit and vegetable assembled together in various shapes, such as bunnies, kettles, bowling pins etc. It’s such a nice way to showcase not only the freshness of their products, but also their sense of humour. “Broccoli’s Extreme Makeover”, a link sent by Robbie this week, explores how Ad agency, Victors & Spoils, have created a great campaign about Broccoli.

A history of the sky: this 5 minute video presents a year-long time-lapse of the sky from the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco though 360 movie panels, each of which shows a single day. It rains more often mid-year, and it’s sunny and cloudy at the end of the year. So let’s embrace the weather, whatever it may be, after all it takes both sunshine and rain to make a rainbow!
