Love It or Hate It, Select Creative Directors Now Have Their Own Custom ‘Ad Kicks’

It’s gonna be that kind of day, folks. If you haven’t heard, a few familiar names in the industry are getting their props via custom-made shoes called “Ad Kicks,” a project that’s the brainchild of Chicago-based creative, Illi Fernandez. According to the bio, Fernandez is just “trying to get her foot in the door” (har har) and is doing so by designing shoes for various creative directors (you know what fashionistas they can be).

So far, a handful have been created, including the “Skate or Die” kicks above for BBH Labs CD Tim Nolan, who you may recall worked at the likes of JWT and Hush Studios prior to his most recent gig. Others on the list include Leo Burnett Chicago creative director Michael Boychuck and Energy BBDO/Proximity CD Kevin Lynch. Each pair, which looks fairly comfy if not, well, kaleidoscopic, comes with its own story though we’re wondering how this particular cast of creatives hooked up with Fernandez.

Altoids Offers Up ‘Hall of Curiosity’ Artifacts for Bidding

From Chicago-based Energy BBDO comes a new Tumblr-based campaign for Altoids dubbed the “Hall of Curiosity.”

While some might expect something called the “Hall of Curiosity” to feature three-headed baby pigs, sideshow oddities and Bootsy Collins in character from that recent Old Navy spot, this Altoids website features such relics as the “First Altoids Tins with Granite Floors,” the “Second Altoids Mint” (as the first was apparently eaten), and the “Golden Monkey Altoids Lamp” (which, according to the grainy black and white video above, was stolen).

Okay, so some of the prized “artifacts” make a bit more sense than others. But, probably the neatest part of this campaign is knowing that each of the items in the “Hall of Curiosity” that weren’t “stolen” are all available for bid on eBay, perfect for that hard-to-shop-for person on your Christmas list who inexplicably has a thing for breath mints. Also, Chicagoans should keep an eye out for Curious Altoids-inspired art installations popping up around the city as part of the campaign. Wait, are we supposed to steal those too?
