I'm John Gilbert

I am a creative that has focused on digital for the last 15 years. I started when Macromedia was new and Visual Basic 4 was hot. I taught myself the ropes, studied Computer Science in college (dropped out) and ended up getting a degree in design. Luckily, the internet came along, and my passion for the web was born. I have been combineing my interests in design and technology since day one of my career and I don't intend to do anything different in the future.

It’s Nice That | Lexus hoverboard actually launches, for real


This is amazing…

First there was the teaser campaign we weren’t sure was real. Then there were the men, knee deep into a mid/quarter-life crisis, dreaming of recreating _Back to the Future_. Now it’s finally here: Lexus has launched its hoverboard, Slide. Lexus worked with “CHI&Partners”:http://www.chiandpartners.com/ to create the board, which is more than a year in the making, and uses what Lexus describes as “magnetic levitation” – a combination of liquid-nitrogen-cooled super-conductors and permanent magnets – to make it float. A new promo video for the product was launched last night showing skateboarder Ross McGouran teaching himself to float. Shot by director “Henry-Alex Rubin”:http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0748066/, we see Ross tackling the Smuggler custom-built hoverpark.

Some work in the NY Times

The last 4 months we have been working on a national campaign for KOA and I couldn’t be  happier with the results. The commercial and video work turned out amazing and the results are incredible so far.

The campaign was written about in the NY Times
