Grolsch Finds Another Way to Bring Cold to the Streets

Wish you could snap your fingers and a cold beer shows up? How about a quick phone call? Grolsch has found a refreshing way to bring cold to the streets of the Netherlands with its "Cool*Season" campaign. Just dial up the "Cool*Hotline" and a Grolsch-slinging rep will zoom in on a scooter (complete with refrigerated sidecar, no less) and trade your other brand of beer for a chilled can of Grolsch Premium Pils. Each can features a "Cool*Meter", ensuring you'll get the optimal chilled experience. Very cool.

World Cup Edition: Great Idea, Great Design Rolled Into One Ball

Unplug Design's Dreamball is simply awesome. It's a perfect example of how inventive design can serve a greater purpose, something more than just nudging one towards one product or another.

The World of Fluxury

Creating a unique brand experience beyond an emphasis on the product itself is increasingly important. If a holistic experience is created, truly personalized and considered by the consumer as a luxury, then a luxury product is born. For luxury is no longer just Almas caviar, Perrier Jouet champagne and Stuart Weitzman shoes. Luxury is purely in the eye of the beholder.

Allowing Experimentation and Freedom

Pretty much what we do everyday is experiment.
We experiment with ideas, strategies, designs, new ways of thinking and approaching problems.
Experimentation allows freedom to explore around the edges,
peaks and valleys, the expanse and the elasticity of ideas and concepts.
This is where the mind challenges assumptions and lets go of the norm,
and is free from bureaucracy.
During experimentation, there is no fear of failure;
it's all "what ifs" and preliminary answers and questions.
Experimentation isn't the solution; it's how you get to the solution.
And it makes knowing what does and doesn't work...
