  • Worth Spreading...

    We at Stink were never in any doubt that Adam Berg’s beautifully shot spot for Dulux was an ad worth spreading but it’s positively delightful to have it confirmed by the good people at TED.

    As they put it, "it moved us with its uplifting message that life is better in colour -- and there is nothing that a fresh coat of paint can't make better."

  • A Smooth Outcome

    Agustin Alberdi's super chic French adventure for Stella Artois is Campaign's Pick of the Week. Here's all the nice things they said about it:

    'Anne Cassidy feels compelled to heap praise on the latest Stella Artois spot by Mother: "This 'smooth outcome' campaign has been lounging around stylishly for some time now. But the work seems to be improving each time. This spot is particularly well exectuted, with a lighter touch than some of its predecessors. The film follows a man's transformation from greasy labourer to sharp-suited smoothie with the help of Stella. The pacing is spot-on." It was directed by Agustin Alberdi through Stink'
