Government announces £3.5 million creative roster

Design Week Features - 19 August, 2016 - 09:36

The Government is putting together a new framework of suppliers, which is worth between £1.8-3.5 million and covers creative, strategy and digital.

The re-rostering process is being run by the Crown Commercial Service and it is expected that 20 consultancies at most will be included in the new framework.

The roster is called the Campaign Solutions Framework and although it broadly calls for “advertising and marketing services”, design also falls under its banner, according to a Cabinet Office spokeswoman who confirms there is no separate design framework.

End-to-end campaign solution

Crown Commercial Service says that the purpose of its four-year framework “is to deliver fully integrated end-to-end campaign solutions”.

As such, a range of suppliers is sought with experience in strategy development, creative for campaigns, digital marketing and social media, public relations, direct marketing and partnership marketing.

Individual or consortium bid

Applicants are allowed to enter as individual consultancies or as a consortium and will need to show that they can deliver “end-to-end campaigns” using their own “resources, experience and capability”.

Clients will include central government departments and their “arms length bodies and agencies”, non departmental bodies, NHS bodies and local authorities.

The New York Times acquires design studio Fake Love

Design Week Features - 19 August, 2016 - 07:33

The New York Times Company has acquired US-based design studio Fake Love, as it looks to expand its native advertising and creative services offering.

Fake Love, which specialises in creative programmes, live experiences and virtual and augmented reality, will be incorporated into the media company’s existing marketing services agency, T Brand Studio.

Currently, T Brand Studio focuses largely on creating native advertising and branded content for clients including Emirates, Ford, Goldman Sachs, Philips and Toyota. It now has offices in New York and London following its initial launch in 2014.

Experiential marketing, virtual reality and augmented reality

Acquiring Fake Love will allow The New York Times’ marketing arm to grow its experiential marketing, virtual reality and augmented reality capabilities, according to the company.

“We’ve worked with Fake Love on projects in the past and have been very impressed with their experiential and creative skills,” says Sebastian Tomich, senior vice president of advertising and innovation at The New York Times Company.

“We’re now very excited to pair their capabilities with our ad products on The Times, with T Brand Studio, as we expand into producing campaigns off of The Times and into the fast-growing worlds of VR and AR.”

Fake Love is the media company’s second marketing agency acquisition in six months, after buying social media marketing agency, HelloSociety, in March.

Beautiful Houses: Floating Home on a Lake in Seattle

Beautiful Houses: Floating Home on a Lake in Seattle GisMullr Aug 19, 2016

Today we will show you an inspiring floating home in Seattle, a project designed by Vandeventer + Carlander Architects. I couldn't find details about the project but I believe the images communicate enough. In my opinion the idea of living in a floating home is really romantic. Not only you get beautiful views but you can jump into the water for a swim right from your bedroom. Really nice layout and materials combination here, take a look!

Make sure to check out Vandeventer + Carlander Architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)

We found this house at Contemporist.
