Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Old Guys Still Got Game

posted by on 10/07/2014

Multivitamins. Not something you’d usually associate with cool content. Centrum however have got it spot on. In their new short film, they match up a group of old guys against guys almost half their age in a game of pick-up basketball in Harlem to prove that old guys can still get down with the kids. Sounds cringy, but it’s a fun little video of real people playing real sport and has managed to rack up over half a million views in a couple of weeks. We probably all know someone who can move like these guys, and it’s actually pretty inspiring. We spend our lives worrying about getting old, but it really doesn’t mean a thing, and these guys prove it. Good job. Click through to watch the video.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 10/07/2014

I’m not gonna lie the inspiration for this weeks Throwback track came from a late night session of me watching Big Brother’s Bit On The Side. One of the guests on the show completely floored me. I was so stunned to see that this person was still around, I mean obviously I didn’t think she was dead or anything but she’s still booking gigs even if it’s a short stint on a panel. I’m glad for her to be honest because I had completely forgot about her existence which is really bad especially when you consider that she is the cousin of my best friend at school. Anywho I think I’ve built up enough suspense now so it is time to reveal who is that star of this weeks Throwback Thursday. Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you Samantha Mumba on the flipside.

World Cup Legends by Geo Law

posted by on 09/07/2014

The World Cup is almost over, but I’m still enjoying seeing content around the biggest sporting event in the world and will honestly miss it all when it’s over. The way people (and brands) get involved in the World Cup with things off the pitch continues to evolve and that’s exciting. A colourful display of artwork was shared on to my Twitter feed recently and I just had to share it. Sheffield-based illustrator Geo Law is an avid football fan, and demonstrated his love for legends of the World Cup through his latest pieces of work. Fantastic illustrated portraits of some of the greatest players ever such as Pele, Diego Maradonna and Bobby Charlton. Read on to see more.

Specsavers x Cheap Monday

posted by on 08/07/2014

Specsavers and Cheap Monday, who would have thought it, quite the unlikely collaboration at first thought but actually it makes sense.  Most of us wear glasses at Y&Y HQ, might have something to do with the fact that we stare at computers all day? Literally only Tahirah and Nike pride themselves with having 20:20 vision…. their time will come. So when Specsavers reached out to us, we were happy to give the collection a try. We  headed out to Greenwich Maritime for this one. More after the break

1 Way Up | Film Trailer

posted by on 07/07/2014

A 3D docu-film about my area! 1 Way Up tells the story of Tre and Quillan, two teenaged boys from Peckham on the road to the BMX World Championships. It shows how they escape peer pressure to take less favourable social and life choices by investing passion in BMXing. It centres around Peckham’s BMX park; I remember when the park was being filmed, so the trailer definitely teased a smile from me.

However, more probably made me frown about this trailer than smile. Personally, I look forward to the day when films/TV shows/media about working class inner-city London, teenagers and black/ethnic kids aren’t about gangs needing a soft vocational activity they can ‘relate to’ to take them off the streets. My other gripe with the film (trailer) is the long-toted misaligned perception that Peckham is this rough area with full of little more than degenerates and disengaged kids. I scoffed when I saw 1 Way Up’s byline – “one of London’s toughest gang neighbourhoods.” This inaccurate depiction is only toted when convenient.

New Balance – Move Forward

posted by on 05/07/2014

‘If your heart was in charge of your feet, beating down to the beat of your dreams to the speed of the future…’. 

Lovely film work from New Balance – an aspirational short film from Cole Webley for the brand. The narrative and concept of it reminds me of Levi’s Go Forth campaign from a few years back which features a similar message; to keep pushing on and breaking boundaries. This is the level of film I’d love to produce at work, strong narrative with brilliant execution and art direction.

London’s Garden Bridge

posted by on 05/07/2014

Now this is pretty sweet and something to rival NYC’s popular highline and I’m all for introducing a little bit more green in our city. One of the things that I miss about India is the greenery and FRESH AIR – my lungs have taken a beating since coming back to the city. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick (the guy behind the Olympic Cauldron) – the new £150 million crossing from Temple to South Bank. With plans to launch in 2018, the construction should be starting sooner rather than later. It’s got backing from the Mayor as a green scheme and a bunch of private investors – rumours are that Apple are interested. iBeacon bridge? Who knows. More imagery on the reverse.

Creative Class by WeTransfer

posted by on 03/07/2014

Interviews are a million times more interesting when they are visually appealing and away from the typical questions/discussions we see far too often. A well filmed interview about a relevant topic goes a long way in being an enjoyable piece of content to watch. WeTransfer (yes, the file sharing platform, that is also now on the App Store!) knows what it is mainly used for – people sharing things of the creative form such as photos, videos and other large scale formats. It now labels itself as more than a file transfer service, but also as a global exhibition of creative talent and a platform for creative exploration. With Creative Class, WeTransfer picks a selection of influential people within the creative industry to interview and presents it in a glorious way. Read on to see more.
