Hi, I'm Gilles Vandenoostende - designer, illustrator and digital busybody with a love of language, based in Ghent, Belgium.

Pepsi 4MAX shortlisted at Cannes!

Cannes 2008 Shortlist

Woohoo! Last year, some of you might remember that I helped to design and develop the 4MAX website – more specifically the multiplayer connect-4 game, and I just wanted to share that we’ve just been shortlisted, twice, at the Cannes Lions 2008. We’ve been nominated in the Media section, under the Fast Moving Consumer Goods and Best Use of Ambient Media, Large Scale -categories.

Another Proximity BBDO project, Dodge Dare Days has also been nominated, so congratulations to that team as well!

4MAX has won a lot of awards/attention over the last few months, here’s a little recap:

Eurobest 2008

  • Media finalist, Mixed Media
  • Media finalist, Best Use of Special Events
  • Interactive finalist, Interactive Campaigns

Proximity Worldwide 2008 (Milan)

  • Silver for Pepsi 4Max

Best of Activation awards 2008

  • Gold Advertisers Jury, Non-Alcoholic Beverages
  • Gold Press Jury
  • Bronze Creative Jury

Whew, that’s a lot of awards/nominations for one single project! We’ve also won Silver at Best of Activation for KBC Word Rockster, from the advertisers Jury, in the Services category. I designed and developed said site, with the exception of the character designs/animations, which were provided by Eugene and Louise.

For a 22 year old guy who’s only been doing this gig professionally for a little over a year and a half, I’d say I can be quite pleased with myself ;) Right, now back to some serious coding. More on this as it develops.
