Quantas vezes você já viu ações legais de concessionárias de automóveis? Palhaços, bandeiras gigantes e malucos de perna-de-pau na porta não contam. Já esse aqui é um exemplo singelo, útil, barato e, imagino eu, muito efetivo.

Para apresentar o novo Chevrolet Cobalt, a concessionária Orca resolveu resgatar potenciais consumidores quando o carro lhes deixou na mão.

A empresa rastreou chamados de guincho, e realizou um test-drive até o local em que essas pessoas no meio da rua ou estrada queriam chegar.

A criação é da agência Monumenta, de Brasília.

5 Alternatives to Consider After Spotify’s Free Music Cutoff

Trendsetting music lovers who signed up for Spotify when it first hit the U.S. on July 14, 2011 will soon encounter roadblocks. For instance, come the six-month deadline to switch to Spotify Unlimited ($4.99 per month) or Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month), Spotify users will only be able to play their favorite songs a maximum of five times, and free streaming will cap at 10 hours per month.

It’s no doubt the unlimited access to a huge library of music — about 8 million tracks — is one of the features that loyal Spotify users love.

Other features include the ability to make playlists of favorite songs (up to 10,000 tracks per list) and social integration to Facebook. Songs you play automatically display on your Facebook Timeline and desktop sidebar. Plus, access content via share buttons and a convenient search bar. With Spotify Premium, users enjoy an offline mode, which means they can listen to playlists on the plane, train or beach. Finally, radio stations specifically tailor to a user’s specific artist or genre preferences.

If you’re an early Spotify user, you may be looking for a new, free music-streaming service as Spotify’s six months of free listening comes to an end.

Trendsetting music lovers who signed up for Spotify when it first hit the U.S. on July 14, 2011 will soon encounter roadblocks.

As fun and convenient as Spotify is, for many, the honeymoon phase is over with the service’s free music cutoff. Here are five free music-streaming websites and applications that act as alternatives to Spotify.

How Music Can Positively Influence Your Designs

2. Use the Music’s Rhythm to Drive You

The tempo and energy of the music you’re listening to can help you achieve a certain tempo or energy with your design.

Seems like forehead-slapping obviousness, but bear with this step. This isn’t meant in an abstract new-age-y way, but literally working along to the rhythm.

Meaning, don’t just stop at bopping your head and tapping your feet to the beat, but type, draw, move elements in your design, and whatever else to the tempo as well:

* Faster, more energetic music will make you create bolder, stronger, simpler designs.
* While slower, pastoral music might make you create deliberate, detailed, smoothed out designs.

If you’ve ever gone for a run or worked out to music, you might have noticed how you run or work out faster the faster the tempo or more energetic the tune. It’s the same here for designing, except now that you’re conscious of this, you can purposefully put faster and more energetic music on when you need to create bolder, stronger, simpler designs, and vice versa.
3. Switch Up the Music Styles to Stay Energized

Don’t have too much of the same type of music. Stay energized by throwing your ears for a loop every once in a while – a.k.a. Love Thy Shuffle Mode.

Too much of anything becomes monotonous. Even the loudest, most banging drum and bass tunes will wear you down and make it normal, not energizing. But intersperse it with some slower, chill tunes, then resume with the banging beats, and you’re jolted out of a routine and fired up again.

Imagine a band playing fast tunes non-stop for the entire show, with no pauses in between. Too much, and the energizing effect wears off after a while.

The same for music you’re playing while designing. True, you used steps #1 and #2 to select and harness the appropriate music in order to achieve your desired visual design style faster, easier, and better. But if you want to sustain that positive influence, you want to give your brain something different every so often to get a jolt and be re-energized.

3 Steps for Using Music to Influence Your Designs

1. Pick Music Appropriate to the Style You’re Creating In

If you listen to certain types of music, it can put you in the right mood, or set the right vibe to more effectively create specific visual designs:

Designer Headphones

  • Grungy – industrial music
  • Futuristic – electronic beats
  • Sunny – bright tropical grooves
  • Slick – driving house music
  • And so forth

You wouldn’t listen to futuristic electronic beats if you’re working on a serene, organic, wood-based design. And you wouldn’t blast acoustic folk tunes while crafting energetic, slick, futuristic designs.

So after you’ve decided what specific visual design style you’re going after or are having trouble achieving, start playing the appropriately-themed music while working.

Seriously, it’s not a tangible or easily-proven thing, but it really works. Just how the right music will fit and enhance the mood of a film (imagine upbeat jangle-pop rock in a brooding, dark horror film – it doesn’t work), in the same way the right music fits and enhances your ability to create a certain visual style.

iTunes to Double Song Sample Length [REPORT]

Are you frustrated by the fact that song samples on iTunes are only 30 seconds in length, which is often hardly enough time to get a true taste of the song?

If so, you’re in luck: according to CNET, which cites multiple sources with knowledge of the matter, Apple plans to extend the length of song samples to a far more enjoyable one minute.

Is Ultimate Chart Overhyped? Its Top 10 is Nearly Identical to Billboard’s

Ultimate Chart is a new type of music chart for the Internet age. It doesn’t just measure music sales and radio play, as Billboard has traditionally done, but popularity over a variety of online services – YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, iTunes, MySpace, MTV.com, and many more. But does Ultimate Chart live up to the hype its received since launching in July? A scan of the top 10 of each chart shows that 8 songs feature on both Ultimate Chart and Billboard. The number 1 on each differs only slightly. On Ultimate Chart the #1 is “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz, displacing Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” (still #1 on Billboard).

Either Billboard is keeping up with the times more than Ultimate Chart likes to admit, or Ultimate Chart isn’t actually changing much in the music industry after all. Which is it?

The Perfect Brainstorm: A How To

Given our fields of interest and chosen professions, most of us have at least once in our lives had to brainstorm for one reason or another. But for those of us who apply this mental tool in our creative pursuits much more regularly, learning to do so effectively is crucial.

Brainstorming could prove an invaluable addition to your creative arsenal, but only if you take the time and put forth enough effort to follow through on the process. This is an unfortunate truth for many, who believe that this “storm” is short-lived. But there is more to it than that.

Brainstorming is more than about just having ideas: it is about having ideas and the means to implement them. You can come up with ideas all day long that sound great on paper and even out loud when you share them with others, but if you have no means to follow through on them, then they will simply fall flat. Just because you have a spark, doesn’t mean you have enough fuel to keep the fire burning brightly. An idea isn’t so much a storm as a drizzle.

Storm in The Perfect Brainstorm: A How To

If you look up the word brainstorm, it is generally defined as a “discussion to produce ideas and ways of solving problems.” The key part here is the discussion. When a lot of us are ’storming, we do so on our own or with few participants, and we end up just sharing our idea rather than discussing it. There is no weighing of pros and cons, no comparison with competing or existing models, no contemplation of the concept’s audience. We must take extra steps to ensure that when we brainstorm, we do so as though we were having this discussion, covering all of these bases and fully examining the idea, not just marvelling at our conception of it.

Consider some of our previous articles:

* How Many Ideas Do You Show Your Clients?
A great discussion post that can help you decide how many ideas should make the cut.
* Where Do You Draw Inspiration From?
Another great post from the Smashing vaults to get you looking in the right places for inspiration.

Free = Worthless: Information Can’t Be Free

by ian

Oh, the humanity. I owe Chris Anderson an apology for this one. After rereading it this morning, I was horrified. Did I really write this? Don’t get me wrong: I do NOT think ‘free’ is a good idea. Nor do I think ‘information wants to be free’ will win out over ‘information wants to be expensive’. But I singled out Chris’ book because I happened to listen to it. What I write below makes a lot more sense as a general argument against ‘free’ as a business model. However, I’ll leave this up, so you can all enjoy my embarrassment. Now I’m going to head off to chew on my foot a little longer.

In ‘Free: The Future of a Radical Price’, Chris Anderson says ‘information wants to be free’ and goes on a utopian tirade about how wonderful things will happen as free information hits critical mass.

Elvis Died 33 Years Ago Today and He’s Still Everywhere!

Today is the 33rd anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. He was 42 then, so that means he would have been 75 today — the same age as the Dalai Lama and Woody Allen. That’s hard to imagine.

Still, I think it’s fair to say that Elvis changed the world.

Yeah, it’s easy to goof on Fat Elvis, with his sequinned jumpsuits and voracious appetite, but I’m not talking about Fat Elvis.

What Exactly Is A Culture Creator?

Cognizant of the fact that he could better disrupt the status quo from the inside, Kanye leveraged his position as Jay-Z’s go-to producer to establish himself by trading on his credibility and changing the perception of his role in Jay-Z’s success. “I brought back the soul,” he eloquently raps on The Blueprint 2’s ‘The Bounce.’

By the time Kanye was able to tell his story on his first album in 2004 it was, essentially, already told. Every celebrated hip-hop artist at the time had either already collaborated with Kanye (Ludacris, Lil’ Kim, 50 Cent) or otherwise revived their career by leveraging his distinctive sound (Common, Twista).

His transformation from hip-hop musician to “culture creator” was a byproduct of the fact that he (and his platforms) embody everything that is of value to him. His has successfully leveraged his curatorial voice to actively shape the urban cultural landscape. Be it sartorially (through his collaborative efforts with some of the world’s most influential personal and luxury product brands), materially, or musically (through his G.O.O.D. Music label), Kanye has created the blueprint for the modern “culture creator” role that today’s most successful icon’s embody.

On Wednesday of last week, I moderated a panel entitled “Making Your Mark” at this year’s Latin Mixx Conference.

The conference, now in its 5th year, is half entertainment summit, half information session and attracts a pretty varied audience of DJs, artists, and industry folk. To kick off the panel, I delivered a presentation (available below) covering a few areas of interest including: personal branding, the marketing and publishing landscape, and the role that today’s public-facing entertainer must play to thrive in the modern information economy.

To be successful in today’s business climate and attract the attention of brands and marketers, artists must fulfill the role of “Culture Creator.” Leer más “What Exactly Is A Culture Creator?”
