anybody feeling a hostile vibe from the ANC these days? have they got collective piles?

not sure about y’ulle but i find it weird that the ANC is sueing the new party because of some lame name issue. i mean it’s not like the ANC has consulted anyone on it because if they did they would see that anyone can use the word ‘congress’ because it’s a free country. did someone run an online name check on CIPRO’s site? do we have to spend tax payer money on this? namechecks only take a few days. because i’d really prefer it if the ANC spent money on recovering all the money their departments have lost over the past year. ANC just seems like one of those CEO wives who doesn’t know how her husband makes his money so she spends it all and then next thing they’re eating dog food out the can.

of course the flip side of this is that the ANC giving all this attention to the new party which is cool, because at least people will finally see that all the ANC does is make a lot of noise about how everyone’s out to get it, and maybe people will consider voting for the new party because of all the free PR the ANC’s been giving it. looks like the new party’s smarter than anyone anticipated. great launch strategy. who’s the planning team on the new party, anyone know?

Heard the ANC is using new media to reach the tech-obsessed generation.

Heard the ANC is using fancy new media techniques.

srsly though guys, does anyone still have faith in the ANC?

even after everyone walked out on it? even after they keep saying all this dumb stuff in the media? even after that fat guy who works for them fell off a chair in the middle of the internet? not really feeling the ANC vibe anymore. they used to have this cool brand that was all about liberation and equal rights and now i’m getting some desperate whiffs of Microsoft. next thing you know they’ll be making cheap MP3 players and really bad ads for them that employ cheap slow motion techniques and squirting.

desperate never comes across as cool. voting for the ANC would be like dating one that ex boyfriend who tells you how he’s gonna kill himself without you. it’s just lame. it’s icky. you wish they would find someone else to obsess over so you can get on with cancelling your relationship on facebook.

The new ANC letterhead. Wonder which design agency they used. I like the bold use of colour. Shows theyre an organisation thats not afraid to innovate.

would love to sit down and have a bit of a brainstorm with the new party. you know, throw around some ideas for where they see their brand going. get some mood boards up, maybe do a few logo options. i’m thinking something with a concept behind it, something that will clean up at all the awards shows. maybe we do a spot UV, maybe we do some injection molding. wonder if they’ve given any thought to what kind of impression they want their business cards to leave. i’d imagine it to be something like ‘Don’t worry, we ain’t going Zim on you, all the smart ANC people have joined us, it’s gonna be fine’ would be a good vibe for them.

don’t mind taking the job on proactively either, as long as they don’t mind me entering it into the D&AD Oneshow Loerie Eagle Awards. I mean, screw the rest of the awards shows, that’s the only one that really counts.

Sneak preview of the new ANC packaging. As you can see, they have tweaked the logo a bit, to appeal to Generation Y no doubt. Digging the new font, too.
