Wow! What a smart way to market the new Narcos series on Netflix! The entire series has now shifted to Mexico, and as a way to see just how drugs are trafficked across the world – this site gives you the opportunity to have cocaine ‘sent’ to your address.
To test it out, we used Tegno Park in Stellenbosch (close enough to our real address – we wouldn’t want to incriminate ourselves!) and had a package of cocaine ‘delivered’. With a smart mix of Google Maps data and Google Streetview, the site creates a short video showing the journey that cocaine takes, all the way from South America to South Africa!

Eddie Wrey is a commercial photographer who shot this series while on assignment in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. He noticed all the women at the Adjame Market with their wares piled high on their heads and asked to shoot them. Because some were a bit shy, he shot them from behind – removing this worry.
We love the result – a look at modern African life with the classic ‘on-the-ground’ workaround you often have to do on a shoot resulting in a happy accident that makes this series even more arresting.

This is clever!
To bring to life the promise that Starbucks is ‘your office outside your office’, Proximity Colombia used the very programs your work day is made up of as their medium of choice. With Word, PowerPoint and Excel, they created the iconic Starbucks cups. Perfect!
It doesn’t get more pure or minimalistic than this!
These print ads by TBWA Thailand form a campaign called ‘The All Nighters’ and using just visuals they tell a simple, powerful story. When you’re up at night working, doing your thing, playing sport or driving around – McDonald’s is open and ready for business.
What a fun game! With some great 80s-inspired design to boot.
In this game you play the one and only Detective Moustachio, where you can choose to either play in infinity scrolling mode, or with a story. Either way it’s a lot of fun, with classic side-scrolling action.
