Creative Inspiration (5 Links)

It's been awhile since I've posted. I've really missed it but have been a bit slammed on the work front. But I do have good news. I've been checking out all the latest awards sites and have 5 links that you've got to check out (these are all from the Webby's but there are a ton of good repositories out there).

So here are my favorite five (in no particular order):
  • Banners that actually are useful (vs. ones that you never see / wish were never there) - from VISA
  • Lonely Planet and Surface come together to create one helluva book experience
  • The Economist shows people where great ideas come from (from great people)
  • Nike Japan uses some cool technology to launch their flagship store
  • NFB Canada tells water stories in a way you've never seen (shout out to a former creative colleague)
Have you checked out any awards lately? What's your favorite?
