Photography is all about capturing that perfect moment in time. In fact, photography is just as much about time as it is about visuals. It’s hard to grasp at first, but the work below shows just how important it can be.
This work from Ray Collins, shows us the vital importance of time in taking great photographs. His wave photos are at once architectural and ephemeral. Capturing waves as they form and break – the perfect moment gives them real weight and heft – more than they have in reality. One can almost imagine these waves as mountains or hills made of real mass, rather than just water.

Li Wei is a Chinese photographer who loves to fly. His work is a mixture of the profound and the fun, utilising photo manipulation techniques to create fantastical images where people fly far above the earth – free to do as they please.
It’s such a breath of fresh air (pun not intended) to see work with such a different view. It’s meaningful but not serious and fun without being frivolous.

When we saw this piece by Feltmark we had to share it. What smart product design.
This is a self-supporting wall lamp – all you need to do is plug it into the wall.
Perfect, perfect, perfect.
Whether you think Tequila flavoured beer is a good idea or not, you cannot ignore this great campaign for Desperados beer by W+K Amsterdam.
We love the cheeky tone and the great art direction and the typography is just perfect – really the star of the show. More of this please!
A good print campaign is hard to deny and this work from Ogilvy Cape Town for Volkswagen hits the nail on the head.
The premise: The new Volkswagen Jettas and Golfs may be small, but they pack a lot of punch.
The solution: Hybrid photoshop animals that are incredibly small, but incredibly ferocious.

We love this work from Swedish agency akestam.holst for the Red Cross in Sweden. The idea (like all great ideas) is so simple yet so clever. Instead of collecting money for the arcade machine owners, these arcade machines collect money for the Red Cross in Sweden.
What a brilliant way to make use of your time (and your foreign coins) when you’re waiting in an airport – and it’s all for a good cause. Our hats go off to them!
These hard-hitting print ads from AMV BBDO in London tell a great story with a smart visual treatment. How exactly do you show how dangerous using your phone while driving is using a static image?
We think these executions answer that question pretty well! Now stay off your phone while driving!
We’re from South Africa, so to us – the braai is a very important thing. It goes by other names in other countries, but we all agree on one thing: There is nothing better than starting a fire, getting some great meat and chucking it on the grill.
We loved these executions for Garland Jack’s Secret Six Barbecue Sauces from CP+B. The copy is snappy and fun, the art direction is on point and the illustrations are so much fun.
Now we just wish we could taste it!
