Lindstrom Leaving BBDO NY

Well, guess BBDO NY EVP/ECD Mathias Appelblad‘s status update just a few minutes ago on Facebook basically sums it up. Anyhow, we have received confirmation that Niklas Lindstrom is indeed leaving said agency after just over two years of service. We’re not sure where his next place of employment is, but we have been told that Lindstrom is leaving BBDO at week’s end and is returning home to his native Sweden.

The digital creative joined BBDO NY as SVP, head of interactive production in summer 2010 after serving as EP/general manager at B-Reel, where he spent six years in all. As far as the other Twitter handle mentioned in Appelblad’s post, we did report to you a month ago that Ronald Ng left to take on the role of CCO at BBDO Proximity Singapore. Meanwhile, we’ve been told that there are plans to replace Lindstrom, but “in time.”

GE Spreads ‘Ecomagination’ Message via iAd

BBDO wasn’t satisfied with just a Youtube page to plug GE’s “Ecomagination” effort. It’s been done to death lately so the agency decided to go with an iAd, which once loaded, invites users to explore a world where they can shake, swipe and spin to discover how GE is working to “help us live in perfect harmony” (wasn’t that a lyric from a Coke commercial?).

There are four interactive experiences for you to play around with: Watt Station, making energy from waste, clean water and wind for clean energy- each highlighting a specific GE innovation.

For those who don’t possess an iPhone (sorry), there’s always GE’s Ecomagination brand channel for you to find out more about the experience. Credits after the jump.
