Told You So! A Christmas gift from The Fools

December 23rd, 2011, Perfect Fools

The holidays are a lovely time of peace and joy. But let’s face it: by bringing extended families into close proximity for longer periods they can also lead to the occasional… erhmm… difference of opinion.

This Christmas, instead of just sending a simple card or other thank you to those we hold dear, we at Perfect Fools wanted to give a gift with lasting human value. We thought: what better than something to promote global harmony for decades to come?

So, we give you the very first beta release of http://told-you.org.

TOLD-YOU.org is a world peace initiative of Perfect Fools. By establishing an independent, unbiased and incorruptible repository that records exactly who told what to whom, we think we may just have solved one of the most nagging, age-old problems of human existence.

If nothing else, hopefully it might someday help you to win an additional argument or two!

Now here’s to a VERY harmonious holiday for you and your loved ones, and a terrific 2012, from Perfect Fools!

All the best,
The Fools

Scotch & Soda: ‘Thanks, we like you too’ installation

December 16th, 2011, Latest work

Amsterdam-based fashion brand Scotch & Soda is going against the tide of companies chasing Facebook ‘Likes’ – instead, they thank their loyal fans through “liking” them back.

In the campaign by Perfect Fools, Scotch & Soda Facebook fans are celebrated in a digital installation in their flagship Amsterdam store. On a digital window display, fans names animate in a handwritten style across iconic black and white Scotch & Soda images selected from the current season’s collections.

The installation was unveiled on Tuesday 13 December at Scotch & Soda’s Heiligeweg store and will run through the peak Christmas period until January 2.

Meet the Fools

Meet the Fools

As a creative studio we Perfect Fools are passionate about our work. So much so that we usually want it to do the talking for us – which means you often don’t get to see the Fools themselves! 

We thought it was time to do something about that so for fun we’ve put together a new album called Meet the Fools, covering the whole crew. We could try to describe these pictures – but, hey, we’ll just let you have a look and see what you think for yourself. Check them out on Facebook, and if you want to please let us know which are your favorites.

Nikon: Camo Bear film

November 2nd, 2011, Latest work

Nikon recently released COOLPIX AW100 – a shock, water and freeze proof consumer camera. As part of the online campaign Perfect Fools created the ‘Camo Bear’ film, a 90-second short designed to demonstrate how hardwearing the camera is. The hero of the film is Camo Bear, a camouflage-coloured, extreme sports enthusiast who lives life to the max.

In the film, we see the bear doing tricks on the ski slopes, on BMX and while surfing. However, those wearing the Camo Bear suit are in fact top extreme sportsmen: French freestyle skier Julien Lange, champion Portuguese BMXer Daniel Americo, and Lisbon-based surfer Miguel Fortes.

See the film embedded above or on Nikon’s YouTube channel. A ‘Behind the Scenes’ film you find here. Film production by mind’s eye.
