A lot of stuff going on lately. Just returned back from our Montréal office where I spent 2 weeks working on a very exciting pitch. Keeping my fingers x’ed for that one. We’re launching a bunch of stuff on adidas Originals at the moment. Check out our youtube channel for latest videos and also the newly relaunched adidas.com/originals.
I’m planning on an entirely new portfolio some time in the near future, but I’m not going to give ya a date ; )
Keep checking back once in a while… and for daily updates remember to check Kriss on creolbrothers.cover.dk
In London shooting. Check a selection of flix over on Créol Brothers.
Wow… think this might be the longest stretch where I haven’t updated the blog. Just been on vacation for 8 wonderful days at the bay of Cala Santanyi on Mallorca - no tweeting, spacebooking or blogging at all! - Pure health! Got to take my new camera for a test run, check out photos from my trip here.
Will get back to blogging here soon; also have a bunch of new work to post in the portfolio section - so stay tuned and in the meantime check out the Créol Brothers blog (you can google translate if you don’t understand danish) or my Twitter.
Saturday this years Cannes Lions came to an end with a grande party on the Croisette after the final Film, Integrated and Titanium Award show. Now I’m back in Amsterdam after a nice long weekend down south with a hella lot of inspiration, sun and partying. Special shoutout to my big bro for an awesome 2 Micheling star dining experience.
It was nice to see non-traditional campaigns win big in almost all categories. With Phillips Carousel swooping the Film Lion Grand Prix (a film made for the web), The Best Job In The World winning Grand Prix in both Press and Cyber, and Whopper Sacrifice, The Great Schleb, and Oasis Dig Out Your Soul all winning Titanium Lions.
But the big winner this year was without a doubt the Obama for America Campaign, winning Grand Prix in both Titanium and Integrated… and who can argue with that (apart from the Republicans)?
Unfortnately it only came to a shortlisting for the adidas Originals campaign, but on the bright side Sid Lee won a Silver Lion for our branding. Gratz to my friends who worked on that!
Almost forgot… if you have time I recommend watching the New Director’s Showcase - some good creative stuff there.

Tomorrow I’m heading to southern France to the lovely city of Cannes. The Cannes Lions is already in full affect, you can watch real time updates and highlights on their site. It’s the first time I’m lucky enough to go, since collecting Lions on stage together with Lars Cortsen and Framfab back in 2006, so really looking forward to the sun, the inspiration and of course the crazy parties!
Unfortunately adidas Originals didn’t make the Cyber Shortlist, but we’re still hoping for it in the viral and film category.
Will post some photos, once I return.
First of all, I know it’s been quit slow on posts on the blog lately. I’m planning a portfolio update soon so stay tuned for that, and also my brother and I have been writing a whole bunch over at Créol Brothers (in danish - but I’m sure most of you will at least appreciate the links).
I also finally got Twitter integrated on the blog (see bottom of page), check that space for frequent outbursts or follow me at @kriss_creol
Tonight I’m flying to Copenhagen to attend the yearly street party extraordinaire Distortion. Looking forward to hang out with my CPH friends and peeps. See ya soon!
It’s going to be an intense 4 days with a line-up ranging from techno legend Carl Craig (Detroit) to Berlin’s Queen of electro Ellen Allien, and of course local favorites Djuna Barnes, Kjeld Tolstrup, Hess is More vs Henrik Vibskov, Tomboy and Trentemøller – and new hyped names like We Are The World, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Viva Radio, Supermayer.
Keep updated on the festival at Créol Brothers, where we’ll be updating daily with photos and maybe even a interview or two.
cheers LaKriss… stay sweet!
As already mentioned I attended OFFF this year in Oeiras (outside Lisboa, Portugal). It was an amazing location to host this Post-Digital Creation Festival. Even though it wasn’t the best event planning by the OFFF people (here I’m referring to lousy bar concept, bad sound setup, smelly toilets, misprinted programs, lack of food, no air-conditioning and so forth), it was the attractive line-up of creative professionals and the amazing atmosphere of the 3500+ attendees that made it an incredible experience.
The blog 3 days in Oeiras has some nice photos from the actual event. CPLUV kept an day by day diary of the events taking place and has made a nice recap post here, also linking to a bunch of videos worth checking out.
This is shiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Not “shit” but shiiiiiiiiiit. And shiiiiiiiiiit is the OFFF Oeiras 2009 blog. Which means that this is where you’ll find daily updates about what’s going on in the fest: info, pictures and all kinds of gossip. May be we even upload a couple of videos…
I know I know ! It’s been way to quite on the blog lately. I’ve been extremely busy with a very exciting pitch, which I wish I could tell some more about, but unfortunately it’s still confidential.
But shiiiiit! Tomorrow we’re heading to Lisboa for the OFFF conference, which looks really awesome this year! I’m looking forward to re-unite with friends from NYC, Montreal and lots of peeps from back home in Copenhagen. Also the weather forecast looks awesome!
Spent a long nice sunny easter in Amsterdam, with my good friend Tim from DK and my girlfriend. Been slow on the blog updates… feels so good to sign-out once in a while!
The Ronins new ‘09 Reel is the perfect drug to kickstart a new week. So smooth and moody… diggin’ it!
