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.

Digital advertising is becoming more traditional with TV (huh)…

Today I heard an awesome talk about engagement on the 2nd screen. Commercials are becoming viable again and we are not talking about the crazy multi million dollar 30 second thing. We are talking about a low dollar CPM on specific network TV. With tons of people using iPads and phones while they watch TV these commercials are becoming larger traffic drivers than some online campaigns. Its an interesting trend and I’m betting it will continue.

Psyop drops another awesome spot.

Psyop drops an instant classic for LG

Posted by Matt Lambert

Psyop’s latest for LG brings a living room to life with a whimsy few others can rival.

It has become too easy to blindly praise the powerhouse that is Psyop. Their talent and resources consistently put them out in front of the competition and they have continued to set the bar for the better part of five years.

Let’s stop for a moment and dissect what it is that really makes them great. For me, it’s that extra percent from concept to delivery. It’s that hyper-attention to movement and timing, details in design and an overall way of noticing moments of beauty in the mundane that push this spot – like many others – into the realm of greatness. Immerse and enjoy.

The new Microsoft ad – uncut

Here is the 4 minute uncut version of the new Microsoft advertisements. Pretty damn funny… Think – What do you do when you have a solid group of people out in the public waiting to bash your every move? Give them nothing. Focus their attention on something funny that they can’t explain. Maybe I’m wrong but its good stuff.
