Stolen Girlfriends Club
SGC. What a joke. These boys were not the most aspirational speakers of the day, but I DID like their originality with this venue for their fashion show
They also deserve credit for their collaboration with artist Karl Maughan
As a complete contrast to SGC; Kelli is one intellectual designer. It was obvious when she spoke, that she think’s into the deeper levels in all her work – something that is clearly evident in her multi-faceted designs.
Her website has essentially been created through using google maps as a template.
She also redefined the boundaries for print media in my mind. Never could I imagine that paper could create sound.. but here she proves this is possible through designing a paper record player for her friends’ wedding invitation:
My favourite project however was the New York Times – Special Edition (see online version here).
Kelli and the Yes Men collectively created a fake newspaper containing the news people would like to see – a utopian future. Hundreds of thousands of copies were distributed to commuters on a busy morning in New York. See their reactions to it here (it does take a while to load, but it’s worth it for the giggles).

Another successful collaboration was made with Wallpaper and Christian Marclay for the October 2011 cover. Watch the fun he had playing with printer’s ink:
Another hilarious campaign Wallpaper created was in advertising furniture through describing its functionality as a work out.
Florian Schmitt, Hi-Res!
Because i’m a little obsessed with Hi-Res!, here’s some more of their work:
Preview of the Hyundai i40 where they created a live online reveal
Dorito’s Late Night Campaign where holding up a packet of these crisps to the screen transitioning Rhianna’s video from one theme to another.

And finally, to end this post I will leave you with a quote from Florian:
“We don’t do things to make money, you make money to do more of these things”
