Barbarian Group Helps ADC Celebrate 91st Awards Show

When it’s not giving us online scavenger hunts, “cheat sheets” for digital creatives and such, The Barbarian Group has found the time to concoct an app that promotes the 91st Art Directors Club Awards. It was DDB New York and Finnish illustrator Rami Niemi that laid the foundation for the campaign (starring Lewis Black), but the Barbarians took it one step further by creating an e-card app that lets you provide a caption for one of the call-for-entries.

You can colorize, customize and choose a scene then share with friends. By the way, deadline for ADC Interactive, Design, Motion Graphics, Photography and Illustration entries is Jan. 20, Student is Jan. 27 and Advertising and Integrated submissions are due by Feb. 10.
