Gold Digger

Gold Nugget

Rob and I aka Oxymorons (vague connection these days) have picked up our first advertising award.  We won gold for our Barclaycard Viral @ The Midsummer Awards ‘the only international festival that was founded by creative people’.  From what I gather, it’s teeny tiny compared to D&AD and Cannes, but it’s a start.

Last years ‘Best Viral’ went to AKQA, for their ‘Tipping Pot’.

I’m slightly overwhelmed that our work is put in the same category as others we admire.

We also have something mahoosive in the pipelines.  First started off wining a pitch, then 4 months of late nights finding our stimulus with dominoes pizza’s, coffee, hobnobs, marsh mellows and other sugary snacks.

All signed off, waiting for the whistle to blow to kick off our new campaign.  August 14th, be near a screen; TV and Internet.

So until then, we crack on with the pitches, banners and book work.

    Well done, the pick n mix line at the end still makes me chuckle.

    @ Emily, I hope you’re not suggesting the Asian shop keeper. Unfortunately we are not in it. We will be in our next ad though.
