Water is easily taken for granted. You simply open up the tap and there it is; fresh ‘n clean. Or, when you’re easily bored, you can choose water from a variety of springs and different bottles and bubbles. The only thing we tend to overlook, is its polluting transportation and the growing amount of plastic waste floating around in our oceans. ID&T strives to offer fresh, filtered and free tap water at all their festivals and asked us to communicate this in an economic and understandable manner. We thought a simple, short animation would do the trick. Illustrations by Tim Boelaars and animated by David de Bruijne.

We are looking for one exceptional human being with a digital heart and a keen eye for flawless design. Someone with a deeply rooted sense for the aesthetic and who has been constantly creating masterpieces for the last five years or so. A person who enjoys to challenge the creatives around him- or herself and likes to contribute to the process with fresh ideas. Working in an environment with lots of energy, music and fine discussions about the origin of all things mustn’t be a problem.
Specific skills we’d much appreciate:
• Design (full familiarity of the entire adobe design package)
• Digital Design (Apps, websites, etc.)
• Print Design
• Some 3D skills
With our agency we aim to make the world a little nicer. We like to build brands with a story, a story with a message and a message with a purpose. That’s why we develop big ideas for good brands - and good ideas for big brands. We are always on the hunt for the inexistent and hungry for the extraordinary.
About twenty years ago, your average dance party was likely to be held on a desolated downtrodden piece of grass in the middle of nowhere. There’d be about a hundred people dancing to the wobbling beats from a shaky sound system and you were sipping lukewarm beer from a dented can, waiting for the cops to come and break it up. But that was before ID&T arrived at the scene. ID&T has cultivated the art of party organization to an almost science-fictional level and has turned electronic dance music into a worldwide flourishing industry. This short documentary, directed by Thijs Schreuder-Rinnooy Kan, captures the turbulent history of ID&T, its process of transformation and finally presents their vision on the future – to Celebrate Life with as many people as possible.
Patagonia is one of the few brands that understands its reason for existence, which is clearly captured in their latest project; Worn Wear. It is an exploration of quality – in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own. More stories to be found here.
Slomo is called Slomo because he skates up and down a San Diego boardwalk – as if in slow motion – day in, day out. It’s his way to get into “the zone,” a realm of pure subjectivity and connectedness. And that’s all he does. He used to be a doctor with nothing more on his mind than buying expensive cars, until he listened to someone who gave him some good advice. Slomo is quite a radical type of person. Director John Izenberg intended to create ‘a window into the ecstatic experience that Slomo has every day’, transcending the trappings of the material world and expectations others might have. He’s simply happy. And that’s good.
In Syria, more than 6.5 million people have been displaced as a result of the civil war that has now raged for almost three years. Syrian winters can be severe, with temperatures well below zero, snow and biting wind. Many of the refugees stuck in tent camps had to leave their homes without packing winter clothes and many children suffer from the harsh conditions. To address this issue and to see if people would give a child some warmth, SOS Children’s Villages in Norway set up a shivering boy at a bus stop in the Oslo winter cold. So would you give your jacket? Of course you would – whether it’s at your bus stop or in a Syrian tent camp. Donate.
