Ian Venskus Understanding Interactive

When explaining to my grandfather what I do as an interactive advertiser, I’ll typically use the analogy of building a house, since he’s built many in his life, and there are many similarities between designing and building a house and designing and building a website.

First there are blueprints. Detailing what is going to be built to the exact inch and making sure everything is level. This in the interactive world is called User Experience Planning and Informati

TV advertisting: beware the missing link

It is almost amusing to see an advert on TV (or any advert or piece of communication at that!) that totally misses their own point. I say ‘almost’ because although I smirk a little and shake my head in absolute wonder, it’s rather depressing to know that someone out there actually got paid money from producing it. And good money too, in all probability. It’s even more depressing when one thinks that the client then wasted even more money by flighting the commercial. In peak times, on premium ch… Continue

Mascot Mayhem – Just Brand It Baby

FADE IN Smoke-filled Madison Avenue boardroom, circa 1951… Ad Man#1: “Ok, what do we have for options for mascot for our client’s new sugar flaked cereal?” Ad Man #2: “We have Katy the Kangaroo, Elmo the Elephant, Newt the Gnu and Tony the Tiger. Ad Man #1: “That’s it? Christ. They suck. None of these will ever work. How bout something like Frosty the Frog?” Believe it or not a conversation very similar to that probably occurred.

Can Quality Creative Really be Crowdsourced?

Crowdsourcing creative is fast becoming a part of the design marketplace. For those unfamiliar with crowdsourcing creative, it’s a way of throwing out a project to a worldwide pool of persons who practice a particular discipline, say graphic design, and in return you get creative submissions from artists with a wide range of experience levels and talent. You choose which concepts to pay for and negotiate a price. The turnaround is fast, and you wind up with lots of submissions to choose from.… Continue

General Motors Rally Cap Commercial is out of touch with America

Has anyone seen the latest commercial from General Motors? It’s difficult to see but they use the “rally cap” as their metaphor for the ad. If you’re not familiar with the rally cap, it’s a baseball superstition that started, I’m guessing, back in the 80’s. If your team was behind in the last inning, the fans would turn their baseball caps inside out and wear them that way. It showed solidarity among the fans to hopefully give their team a little extra luck to rally back and w… Continue

Pop Rocks, Pop Culture, and Life. Nothing seems to entertain more than those mini movies on TV that we call commercials. Commercials are so loved that even 20, 30, or 40 years later, people fondly recall their favorites from childhood, or even the new favorite viewed just the night before. I most fondly recall the commercials from Saturday mornings when I would sit on the floor in front of the TV, watching cartoons in my pajamas. Mind you, t… Continue

Ian Venskus The New Advertising Platform

During this recession it has been quiet clear that Newspapers and Magazines will not last in their printed forms much longer, and that the push to online news and content has accelerated. Media distributors have two problems right now: 1. They can’t charge a lot for banner ads because banner ads and other online “advertising techniques” don’t really work in terms of “make the logo bigger” type branding. (Fault of both advertisers and media distributors.) 2. Media Distributors have not found a… Continue
