An innovative voice company is helping children with speech impediments through its fairytale-inspired new animation.

VocaliD's animation tells the story of a young girl named Goldivox, who is on an adventure to find her perfect voice.

The company's first marketing campaign promotes the Voicebank, which encourages people to 'donate their voice' to those with speech impediments, helping them find the perfect sound for them.

The campaign website shows Goldivox on her travels (which you can watch below) and you can also donate your own voice by enabling your microphone settings.

Let us know what you think of the campaign and if you'll take part.

As virtual reality emerges into the mainstream, will 360˚ viewing join the advertising trends of 2016?
 
A couple of weeks ago, we covered the latest BMW ad, an interactive 360˚ offering featuring the model Gigi Hadid.

However, BMW isn't the only company to make the most of the up-and-coming technology: GoPro has recently created a breathtaking video introducing its latest Omni product.

The video starts off like any other 360˚ ad, letting you explore the snowy ski slopes in full, but GoPro's Omni provides a clever twist. Omni's experience immerses you in a world of skiers, joining their every jump, duck, and slide down the mountain, from behind, in front, below, and even above.





But 360˚ video isn't just being used for products; hit TV show Game of Thrones has also used the technology to create a unique version of its opening sequence, which is said to have been viewed an estimated 5.3 million times within 24 hours.

These are just a few examples of how brands are using 360˚ technology; read more about the Game of Thrones experience here and let us know where else you’ve seen this latest trend.




Intel has taken to the sky with a breathtaking light show created by drones.

Taking place in the Palm Springs desert, the display (the first explicitly approved one of its kind in the US) was designed as a test to see how the flying robots could perform stunning shows on a larger scale.

One hundred drones were controlled by a single operator and his support team, lighting up the night sky with incredibly colourful choreography.

A supermarket brand has demonstrated just how fresh its frozen fish really is...

By bringing it back to life.

'The Live Fish Pack', a clever marketing stunt for Mila, features what looks like standard packaging containing normal fish.

But with WiFi and a proximity sensor, the boxes jump and shake when unsuspecting shoppers approach them, giving the impression that the fish really are 'fresh'.

The ingenious experiential campaign was also broadcast live on a website, where visitors could activate the fish and watch the ensuing reaction.

Watch the 'The Live Fish Pack' below and tell us what you think of it - priceless prank or macabre marketing?

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is now home to a dazzling installation paying tribute to the famous playwright.

The permanent piece, entitled For All Time, was revealed on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and takes inspiration from Romeo and Juliet.

Steven Follen has individually suspended 2,000 stainless steel 'stars' from the ceiling of the Swan Wing, which come together to form an ethereal human face.

To create the impressive ten foot display, Follen used both digital measurements and traditional craftsmanship.

When it comes to the psychology behind logos, a lot of importance is placed on colours and how they portray certain emotions, such as red for passion, or blue for tranquility.

But did you know that shape is equally important?

An interesting infographic, 'Shapes in logo design', delves into the psychological meanings behind various logos' shapes; for example, the three boxes that make up the BBC logo represent an organised and stable brand, whereas round logos send positive emotional signals.
