House in the Dunes

chris+frank.jpg

An architect and 3D animation specialist, Michał Szulik is the mastermind behind the House of Dunes project. The beautiful interior and exterior design of this home is a shining example of minimalism, using accent pieces such as walls and hardware to contrast the white negative space that dominates the home. Utilizing a black and white color scheme and reclaimed wood throughout, this home is brilliantly thought-out and decorated. And the most interesting part of this home? It is 100% computer-rendered and not the least bit real. Enjoy the video at the end of the blog which shows a rendered walkthrough of this lovely concept home.

World Cup 2018 - France Illustrated

chris+frank.jpg

In the wake of France taking the victory in the 2018 World Cup Final, French artist Yann Dalon created these stunning illustrations to honor and commemorate this year's champs. Yann combines traditional painting styles such as watercolor and acrylic with digital techniques using Photoshop and a tablet to create his masterpieces, and has a clear mission with his work: he draws and paints with the desire to transcribe movement, with the ambition of 'moving a fixed picture.'

I’m very proud of this work, an order of the French Football Federation (FFF) for the decoration of the Russian Hotel for the World Cup 2018 in the town of Istra. 23 compositions for the doors of each bedroom of the players, 4 for the coach Didier Deschamps and the staff, and 2 big wall murals.
— Yann Dalon

DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio

chris+frank.jpg

Located in Budapest, Hungary, DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio is a mecca for interior design, epitomizing the intersection of influence and inspiration. From their basic identity to their sliding doors that cleverly change messaging written on the wall behind it, no stone was left unturned in this beautifully and brilliantly designed space.

The DekoRatio office not only provides an experience to its visitors, but also acts as a showroom for interior design. The space is divided into two parts in the angle of a "K": an industrial space and an all-white office space. This division speaks to the studio's ability to execute brand strategy and also to produce signs and prints.

Hypebeast 20 - The X Issue

chris+a+frank.jpg

Sporting a 90's vibe, Hypebeast 20 - The X Issue is a uniquely retro editorial project designed by Hybrid Design studio out of San Francisco. Combining a classic editorial feel with graffiti-esque hand drawings, the style and feel are reminiscent of Raygun and the work of David Carson. Showing its face more and more lately, this 90's feel is even recognizable in the upcoming film Captain Marvel.

Red Bull Music Academy BASS CAMP

chris+frank+cfx.jpg

Ben Ali Souheil created this stunning poster series for Red Bull Music Academy BASS CAMP. Using geometric shapes interwoven with musical iconography and elements, Ben created a series that spoke to the event's fusion of medieval and modern inspiration.

This design story came together in what I think was the centerpiece of this project, the limited-edition canvas posters named after the 7th note on the musical scale.

Unilever Threatens to Pull Advertising

chris-frank-unilever.png

Unilever, one of the largest consumer goods companies in the world, is threatening to pull advertising from Google, YouTube, and Facebook if the tech giants don’t rid their platforms of extremism, hate speech, and fake news. Unilever spent $9 billion globally on advertising last year. And with more of those dollars moving to the digital space, Big Tech depends on those billions if it wants to keep growing.

Unilever will not invest in platforms or environments that do not protect our children or which create division in society, and promote anger or hate.

YouTube & Brand Safety

youtube-security-chris-frank.png

After nearly a year of complaints from advertisers concerned about their ads appearing alongside questionable content and a slew of its biggest influencers going rogue on the platform, YouTube is revamping its policies for how creators make money off of their videos.

Over the past year, YouTube has tweaked several of its policies, upping the requirement for channels to hit 10,000 views, for example, and adding more staffers to vet videos. Still, brand safety has quickly become a more mainstream problem for brands.

While we took several steps last year to protect advertisers from inappropriate content, we know we need to do more to ensure that their ads run alongside content that reflects their values.
— Paul Muret | VP of Display, Video & Analytics at YouTube

Programmatic Premium Ads
YouTube is now manually screening each individual video for Google Preferred channels, which should cut down on the number of lone videos that make their way through YouTube’s programmatic pipes. According to Google, Google Preferred channels and videos in the U.S. will be vetted by mid-February and will be finished globally by the end of March.

Moving Beyond Views
Now YouTube channels will need to amass 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time in a one-year period to run ads. Both new and existing channels will have to meet the new requirements, which go into effect on Feb. 20.

Tiered Media Buys
YouTube is rolling out a three-tiered system for brand safety that allows brands more transparency into where their ads appear. One option caters to brands that are sensitive about where their ads appear. On the other end, a broad-based option lets brands buy ads across a bigger section of videos. The middle option—which is the default option—plays between, with targeted ads that still reach a significant number of channels.
