Big Ideas from a Small World

March is now to be known as “Overstepping your bounds month”

First Happy Corp. incurs the wrath of MoMA, bloggers and the graffiti community in one poster-boy swoop.

Now this:

The Creativity Magazine site is subscription only after a few days... so read it now, since you can.

Social media one-upmanship continued in the digital community this morning when Agency.com’s digital effort for Snickers.com, which encourages candy fans to “learn to speak Snacklish,” prompted an immediate brandjack from a crosstown rival led by a former Agency.com creative.

Snckrz.com is a bare page done up in Snickers brown, with room for a user to turn text into a Snickers logo as well as a feed of a Twitter search for “snckrz,” an element similar to Masterfoods’ recent Skittles homepage redesign, also fashioned by Agency.com.

But snckrz.com wasn’t a Masterfoods-led project, and isn’t affiliated with the brand officially.

Seems digital shop Poke decided to have a little fun. I don’t know about you but though fun is fun, messing with my agency’s cilents would make me a little nervous.
