Nuit Blanche

à ne pas manquer - Cannes Lions 2012, Episode 4: Les meilleures vidéos créatives selon Saatchi & Saatchi! Pour la 22ème année consécutive, The Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase, intitulé "Meet your Creators" a enflammé le grand auditorium de Cannes. INfluencia vous propose de regarder presque en live les 18 talents d'aujourd'hui et de demain. Jeudi matin dans le grand Auditorium du Palais des Festivals, le Show Saatchi & Saatchi«Meet the Creators» a tenu ses promesses. Une mise en scène peut-être moins esthétique que l’année dernière, mais d’une technicité surprenante: tout a commencé par une valse de robots A.R Drone de Parrots volant en formation serrée au dessus d'une pyramide. Une pyramide lumineuse surplombée d'un faisceau bleu qui vibrait au son d'une douce voix faisant l'éloge de la créativité et de la magie (voir vidéo ci-dessous). Et dans une chorégraphie digne d'une escadron d'avions de chasse, les A.R Drones volaient enparfaite symbiose avec de grands rayons lumineux sur fond de basse électronique pleins tubes.

6 Reasons Why Designers Should Code I know, I know…none of us creative types want anything to do with coding past the very basic HTML/CSS we need to know to get our designs to the developers. Doing development is something for those programming grunts, those code jockeys, those geeks. Why should we enter the trenches of development when it’s so nice up here with the Photoshop brushes, afternoon tea, and MacPros? Because you’ll be a better designer for it. Skeptical? 1.
