This Agency Is Selling Its Rejected Creative Work

This Agency Is Selling Its Rejected Creative Work

Clever ideas that makes us smile are always rewarded with a share. And this idea reminded us of an idea we had. We were going to take pdf's of all our rejected work and put them in an "ad graveyard" on our site. But then we figured we had two choices... password protect the gallery or get our asses handed to us by MM (or OLD agency). In the end we never got around to it. But it was a fun idea and we had a lot of laughs scheming about it.

We Work At Rain43

Dave Stubbs, Jane Murray, Duncan Porter - VP, Executive Creative Directors at Rain43

I'm so excited to share some amazing news. Duncan and I are now VP, Executive Creative Directors at Rain43. Our partner in crime is Jane Murray, and we couldn't be happier. This is an exciting new model for how agencies should be structured, with a partnership of very senior digital and traditional creative expertise at the very top. From what we've seen already clients love the approach and are excited to see what we can do.

One of our first tasks is to entirely rebuild the creative department. We're looking for fresh thinking and serious cross-discipline chops. We need intermediate and senior creative teams, designers, and front-end developers. We also want to hear from motion graphics specialists and UX people of all flavours. Analytics people, too. We need it all.

Ultimate SciFi Spaceship Soundscape

Looking for a background engine sequence or sounds for a film or school project? Well, look no further. Warp Speed is the motherload. It's also a fun time-suck. And it's free.

Star Trek's Enterprise engine noise has been a recurring request. A slight problem delayed its release: our user interface had more sliders than it needed to recreate the sound! 😉 So, instead of designing just an engine noise, we decided to throw some extra sounds and turn the engine noise into a fully featured intergalactic experience. This soundscape has all the background noises needed to immerse yourself in a classic Sci-Fi movie soundtrack. For the TOS fans, we even added those fluttery vintage synth tones, reminiscent of how the future was perceived like... back in the sixties!

OR, go to the YouTube video and snag the effects from the 24hour, pre-recorded version.
