Grey NY Nabs Global Agency Duties for Whitney Museum

whitneybiennial

Grey New York is dabbling in the art world as it’s now been global ad agency for the Whitney Museum of American Art following a review. From what we’ve been told by sources, Grey beat out three other agencies in the pitch including Mother NY (Update: We’re now hearing from other sources that Mother actually declined to pitch. The saga continues). First up to bat for Grey, which is officially being dubbed “exclusive marketing partner” for the New York-based Whitney, is an integrated campaign breaking this week with the launch of the Museum’s 2014 Biennial.

In a statement regarding the agency decision, Whitney chief marketing/communications officer, Jeff Levine, says, “This is a transformational moment in the Whitney’s history and we are delighted to partner with Grey. Grey’s creativity, the strong,
clear tone of voice present in all of its work, strategic insights, integrated digital and social capabilities and global reach made Grey the ideal choice.”

In addition to the Biennial work, Grey NY will also provide marketing support for the Jeff Koons: A Retrospective exhibit that will be unveiled in late June and build brand awareness to hype the Whitney’s move to NYC’s Meatpacking District in spring of next year.  The Whitney Biennial, by the way, runs through May 25 at the museum’s Madison Ave. space. Prior to Grey, the Whitney worked with the likes of Ogilvy, though there was no incumbent in this current review.

Knicks Mask Mediocrity with Cool 3D Projection Mapping Intro

Don’t get us wrong, we have high hopes for the New York Knicks, but like the Mets, they always seem to disappoint. So while we await the eventual first-round playoff loss, let’s revel in this nifty pre-game intro that comes to us from film/digital production studio The Famous Group. According to those in the know, the Knickerbockers are the first professional U.S. sports team to showcase 3D projection mapping technology at a game.

TFG utilized tools including a Canon 5d Mark II Projector and HDMI Breakout Monitor (followed by post work in After Effects and Maya among other software) to fully realize this effort, which marks the second cool digital project that Carmelo Anthony‘s been involved with in the last few months. Now, can we at least get 40 wins in this shortened season? Credits after the jump.
