A short film following the recreation of the Pablo Fanque circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write 'Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite' for the Beatles album 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.' Using the traditional methods of wood engraving and letterpress printing, Peter Dean and his team of experts bring to life Lennon's poster. Awesome.
Noggin Digital recently sent us an infographic highlighting the potency of some St. Louis Ad Agencies search rankings. We're aware that this is an obvious attempt to direct some new business Noggin's way, but we figured that if someone went to the trouble of pouring thru this information and interpreting it in a weird western-gunslinger vibe, why not shine a little light on it?
Coca-Cola, has teamed up with design platform BlankYou Very Much to allow their logo and assets to be used in a design competition.

Alexis Ohanian and the Internet 2012 Bus Tour are making a stop in St. Louis tonight to voice their displeasure over the SOPA & PIPA bills while promoting the concept of Open Internet, or an internet not regulated by the government.
On January 18, 2012, tens of millions of Americans defeated SOPA and PIPA two bills that threatened the Internet, one of the healthiest parts of the American economy.
And now we’re making sure our government understands just how important the Internet is to all Americans. This October we’re taking a bus (literally half red, half blue) from Denver, CO to Danville, KY to campaign for the Internet during the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates.
The Internet 2012 bus will collect, document and share stories throughout the American heartland, because this isn’t just about Silicon Valley. It’s about parents taking Skillshare classes on blogging in Boulder, TED meetups in Omaha, Kentucky folk festivals that get funded on Kickstarter, artists in Missouri who can sell to the world on Etsy and retirees who can make some extra money renting out a room on Airbnb. Thanks to the Open Internet, people are learning marketable skills that are turning them from unemployed to gainfully employed.
