Project runway

There has been much reality TV and I’m really quite glueeeed to Project Runway.

Its really facinating where, besides eleminating designer wannabe, they are also indirectly eleminating away models. Kind of there can only be 1 designer & 1 model left standing..hehe…i like that…a cruel society. Thats the thrill of reality TV.

OK, back to yesterday episode, the designers are suppose to design a wedding dresss for their models they selected. Hmmz.. model turn client. INTERESTING.

What supprise me most would be..the models really take things seriously where they brought along their partner to give some opinions in creating their dream gown.

Here comes the sad part…..Major Upset to me.

It is actualy how the designer handle the clients. To me being creative is constantly supprising you client. NOT- following what they want, Not -doing what is non satisfactory. They are like being led by the nose.

To me, its to understand what the client want and give them something what is similar but better as a few design element is added to it to make it what i call DESIGNER piece. We need to show them that design is not as simple as ABC. We can make your dream dress LOOK EVEN BETTER…thats what i CALL CREATIVITY.

We don’t have to come out with something totally new or eye poping like what Austin did in the show. But he should have added a few more element to make it look MORE like a wedding dress than a I dunno whats that thing. You get what i mean—Austin_dress>In case you wanna know..he is not eleminated. 🙂

PSC

I guess that most singaporean has seen the commercial by "PCS" -"Pu Wei Zi Ye". If you still got no idea what i’m talking about. You may skip this post.

I’ve heard too often people complaining about their commercial being crapy and irritating. I got different views about it. I think the idea was fantastic,I must say they are the few companies which are acceptable to crazy ideas and of coz might be due to budget contstraints, the cast is always the same.

But don’t you think their ideas behind each theme is fantastic.

If Budweiser croaking frog/toad can gain so much recoginition, why can’t PSC.

I respect them in their willingness to ignore all criticism and do what they think is fresh and entertaining.

All these do not conclude that their show is nice:) hehehe
agian my none the 2 cents worth of thoughs

Creativity – No Smoking

First thing first, I’m a non-smoker but i’m living with smokers for about 28yrs and counting.

With he recent ban of smoking in public places like community club, bus interchange and etc. "Posters" has been seen, hmmm or i should say have noon been seen.

You see…the ad says LOOK HERE,having a pair of eyes and a mind of my own. Do i reallyhave to LOOK HERE and know that …oh…its a no smoking area.

With our ageing population, where I "assume" that not many citizen or even tourist know that certain area is a no-smoking area. Am i’m suppose to be "FINE" or even be blame for smoking in these area?

Eh….is this how creaativity ads can be? You call that effective? Can’t a simple No_smk 

works? Hello….simplicity is still a  piece of ART!!!!

I’ve got no idea who the agency is responsible or the person ic-charge of accepting such ideas. Only 2 word -"Kay Kiang" "act smart"
