Proverb and Berkeley Investments Get Graphic


Proverb, a multidisciplinary branding agency in Boston, has completed branding and marketing assignments for The Graphic, a unique luxury living space located in Charlestown, Massachusetts and began leasing in May, according to Proverb’s Managing Director, Daren Bascome. Working with Berkeley Investment’s Development Project Manager, Paul Goodwin, Proverb was tasked with the branding and creative development for The Graphic including the brand strategy, name development, logo development, and marketing that included the property website, thegraphiclofts.com, signage and print collateral and the tagline for the property, “Be Bold. Be Graphic.”



Proverb’s Managing Partner, Director of Client Services Christine Needham commented, “Built on the site of a beloved graphic arts workshop in Charlestown, Massachusetts, The Graphic embraces a tradition of creative production, technical know-how and fearless tenacity in order to cultivate a connected, convenient, experience-based lifestyle in the heart of the Boston area. With two distinct buildings built behind a singular vision, The Graphic has something for everyone.”



The project, named The Graphic in honor of the site’s former use, sits directly across from the newly reconfigured Sullivan Square T station on the Orange Line and directly across from The Schrafft’s City Center and adjacent to Hood Park. The Graphic offers an abundance of outdoor space that is typically not seen or offered in urban projects including three courtyards and a common roof deck. The two buildings that form The Graphic successfully bridge history and contemporary design, while offering residents modern conveniences and the accessibility to make life all around easy.

ABOUT THE GRAPHIC
With a modern design that celebrates Sullivan Square’s industrial heritage, Berkeley Investment's latest transit-oriented project, The Graphic, will bring to Charlestown a total of 171 apartments (spanning two buildings), approximately 5,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space. The redevelopment includes the adaptive reuse of the Graphic Arts Finishers Building featuring loft-style apartments, and will offer residents a lounge, club room, game room, and bike storage facilities, as well as onsite management offices.

Ed Sheeran’s Social Message to Heinz Results in ‘EdChup’ Ad Campaign


It’s no secret that British singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran, is a big fan of Heinz Ketchup. He’s professed his love for it on social media, in interviews, puts on everything he eats and he even has the Heinz Ketchup logo tattooed on his arm.

It should come as no surprise that Heinz and Sheeran would eventually collaborate on an ad campaign together. The result is a fun ad campaign that's based on a real experience where the singer walks into a fancy restaurant in his trademark chequered shirt, orders a fancy meal with fancy vegetables, but no Heinz Ketchup on the table. Check out the video to find out what happens next.


This campaign reportedly came about after Sheeran directly contacted Heinz via social media. The company is apparently so flattered to be working with the talented singer that they decided to release limited edition 'Edchup' bottles, which is now available in most of the country's major supermarkets.

AIB and ROTHCO Release Beautiful New Book Literally Grown from Grass Roots



Demonstrating the power of natural resources, ROTHCO and Allied Irish Bank announce the tour of an incredible new book, ‘10 | The Book That Grew’. In an initiative to support Irish agriculture and farming, the book has been grown entirely from grass.

In a world’s first, every page, every word, and every diagram in this book was formed by real grass roots as they grew.
In 2017, AIB partnered with Teagasc (Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Development Authority) to launch a multi-year campaign to increase grass utilisation on Irish livestock farms. AIB has a business relationship with almost 35% of farmers in Ireland and with the roots of the Irish economy in Agriculture, AIB is committed to backing farmers with the help they need to grow their business.

‘The Book That Grew’ is the latest instalment of AIB’s ongoing campaign. Working with creative agency, ROTHCO, AIB wanted to deliver the most up to date guide for efficiency and sustainability in farming by changing the way farmers see the country’s greatest resource - grass.

Creative Director Ray Swan notes, “The idea of growing a book from grass roots about grass management and sustainability was beautifully simple and powerful. We knew it would be difficult, maybe even impossible, because nobody has ever tried this before, but in AIB we had a client who was willing to go on this journey with us.”

The book was grown from the very grass that Irish farmers nurture and contains 10 tangible lessons and 10 pieces of practical advice designed to help maximise sustainability and increase profitability. These 10 steps enable farmers to achieve a ‘perfect’ 10 rotations of grass grazing per year, and produce 10 tonnes of grass per hectare – a truly powerful number that will greatly improve the sustainability of even the most efficient farm. These lessons shaped into the pages of a book were created by bespoke plates that were used to manipulate the growth of the roots into legible shapes.

Each page was grown during February and March 2019 by German artist Diana Scherer. The pages were then harvested in Amsterdam and bound together in Dublin by Letterpress Printer and Bookbinder, Jamie Murphy of The Salvage Press. Everything in the book, including the ink and binding were made from the same grass, demonstrating that when managed correctly, it can work wonders.

‘10 | The Book That Grew’ will now begin a tour of the country at AIB-partnered agricultural events such as the National Ploughing Championships. The book contents will be made available on AIB’s website, while video and photography of how this incredible process took place will be distributed through AIB’s social channels.

Blinkink’s Elliot Dear and McCann London Serves Up New Campaign for Wimbledon



Blinkink director Elliot Dear has teamed up with the All England Club (AELTC) and McCann London to serve up the new campaign for The Championships, Wimbledon 2019.

Under the umbrella of #JoinTheStory, the new campaign reflects that Wimbledon has shared the front pages with headline news events around the globe ever since its first staging in 1877, playing its part in the stories of our time for over 100 years.

Elliot captures the heritage, history and excitement of The Championships in this launch film, The Story Continues, which sees historical achievements unfolding in parallel with epic Wimbledon moments. The film was created through a highly innovative mixed-media process, seamlessly blending live action, stop-motion, CGI, and stock footage.

Since before Fred Perry graced the court in the 1930s, the Championship has shared the front pages with headline news events around the globe. In this sense Wimbledon has shared a stage with world events for over a hundred years.

adidas Outdoor Celebrates Danny MacAskill Partnership with Film by Cut Media


Danny MacAskill, the Scottish trials cyclist and star of multiple YouTube smash-hit viral films such as Red Bull’s Imaginate, shows off his amazing skills in a new brand film for adidas Outdoor, created by Cut Media.

It launches on Danny’s Youtube channel on Tuesday 4th June to celebrate his new brand partnership with adidas Outdoor.

At three and a half minutes, the film shows Danny performing a series of incredible tricks demonstrating both his imaginative approach to his riding and his unparalleled skills.

Appearing to be self-filmed, the spot opens with Danny setting up a shot with a beautiful Scottish harbour as a backdrop. The film takes us through a series of locations as the athlete uses local landmarks and the epic wilderness of the Highlands to do some amazing riding.

We also see some shots where Danny fails to land a line, giving the film humour and an authentic feel.

The style of the film is very straightforward. There are no gimmicks or dynamic camera shots, just clean, well-composed frames with beautiful backdrops. This filming technique was used to align with adidas’ ‘Here to Create’ campaign, and to highlight Danny’s position as a creative athlete, who demonstrates his skills through film instead of competing in events.

The film represents a continuation of Cut Media’s long-standing relationship with Danny, including Imaginate and Wee Day Out for Red Bull, and it is also the fourth campaign the creative agency has worked on with adidas. Cut Media previously collaborated with adidas on the Claim Freedom documentary, the Two BOA shoe launch and the Mountain Project.

It was filmed on location in the coastal village of Dunbar and Glencoe in the Highlands, to the soundtrack of ‘The Wind that Cried The World’ by the Phantom Band.

Danny MacAskill, Five Ten and adidas Ambassador, said: “We spent an amazing few days at home in Scotland filming the project. The film captures so much about what I love about riding, with the freedom to explore cool locations and push my riding level”

Stu Thomson, Founder and CEO of Cut Media, said: “We wanted to keep this film authentic, and connected to Danny’s roots. The playful nature and impressive skills of Danny’s riding along with the beautiful Scottish backdrop are definitely the star of the show.”


About Cut Media
Cut Media creates and produces inspiring content for global brands, with clients including Red Bull, Continental and adidas. The agency was founded in Glasgow in 2007 by former professional mountain biker Stu Thomson. It offers end-to-end video services, from concept development to filming, production, directing and post-production, employing a team of ten across the full spectrum of disciplines, with a network of associates all over the world.
Cut Media has made its name through collaborations with athletes and influencers, including Red Bull’s smash hit viral Imaginate, starring mountain biker Danny MacAskill. It works with clients across multiple sectors including travel, FMCG and banking, and was named Scottish SME Creative Agency of the year in 2019.
