Droga5, the advertising agency founded in New York City by David Droga in 2006, is today’s Site of the Day. Perhaps the most fun part of the www.droga5.com site is the opening page. Refresh your page and time after time you’ll be treated to a selection of photography from the Droga5 staff cameras.
D5 takes viewers to “About Us”, the usual broad overview enhanced by a selection of portfolios of extra passions and projects from staff. There’s Scott Witt’s photography, Duncan Marshall’s scribbles, Matty Burton’s Refill magazine, Mindy Liu’s tattoos, Kevin Brady’s “The Life of Quinn”, and so on.
Work includes material from the UNICEF TAP Project, Marck Ecko’s Air Force One graffiti stunt, the Net 10 Supervillains series, Steinlager’s Win Nick’s Life campaign, New Museum, and Balance Water packaging design.
Case study videos give the background on the UNICEF TAP Project, the *eckō unltd stunt, the development of Honeyshed online advertising channel, NYC Department of Education Million campaign, Steinlager Meet Nick, and the New Museum design project.
In contrast to agencies like Mother London, Droga5 has no hesitation in celebrating the identities, roles and personalities of their staff. They’re listed in alphabetical order, with photographs and profiles. Interestingly enough, because the site is constructed in Flash, none of these profiles is likely to turn up in the search engines. So here’s the list for the sake of anyone looking….
