Shooting a promotional video for CeBIT

Sans titre 0comments

Last Friday we got the visit from Monika & Piotr, from Red Brujah, who were sent by PARP (the Polish agency for enterprise development) to shoot a promotional video of Mintia.
We had lots of fun shooting it, there might even be some bloopers and behind the scenes that are coming your way in the next few days.
The video will be shown at CeBIT, Hall 11, but you can still visit us at our stand Hall 5 (A56).

See you in Hannover (If you don’t have your entries yet, we have some invites left so leave a comment here or send us an email: hello@mintia.com).

Pepsi does the Harlem Shake

It has been on the interweb for a few days now, and it’s already a HIT!
The Harlem Shake, this dance that was initiated by some Australian Randomness aficionados flamed up the social networks and has been imitated by offices and people from around the world… We’ve seen the Norwegian Army doing it, The progressive online news show The Young Turks and many other random lovers!

But Pepsi is the first brand to use it to its advantage with a video that shakes up its drinks! Not sure you want to drink those afterwards!

We might do one in the office today… But I still have some Lobbying to do. Maybe you could help me lobby… so Like this if you want to see a video of Mintia Team going wild!

Is Crowdsourcing the real winner of Super Bowl XLVII?

crash-the-super-bowl 0comments

This year’s edition of the Super Bowl was a very unique one. Not only because the per minute price for a commercial spot was the highest in history, not even for the fact that it had the highest viewing peek with over 164 million people tuning in to at least six minutes of the game, neither for the reunion of the Destiny’s Child which might or might not have caused a 34 minutes power outage (a lot of electricity needed to lip sync the songs?? Zing!) making this “Blackout Bowl” the longest running with 4h14min. Not saying that none of that played into making this SB unique, but what we want to point here is the amazing number of companies who decided to run campaigns based in part or only on crowdsourcing!

Welcome to Mintia’s world

IMG_8957 0comments

Hello folks,

We would like to officially welcome you to our new website and blog!

We realise we haven’t been formally introduced yet; so allow us to make up for that! Team Mintia is a dynamic and creative bunch, very passionate about providing the best solution to both the designing community and the clients in need of creativity!

Our mission is to brige the gap between the two in every way possible! We’ve started with a contest platform for which our BD team is always trying to bring serious and larger clients: the ones that matter in a portfolio!
We are now working on new tools that would allow several designers to work on a collaborative project, a Mintia Elite Team with the “crème de la crème”, or for hire tools to promote the designers in the Mintia community!

We also want to make this platform more interactive! We are doing our best to enable you to exchange ideas and tips, share your portfolio with your clients; enable Mintia’s clients to interact with the community. Any ideas you might have are more than welcome !

As for our new website, we’ve tried to make it simpler and more user friendly. You’ll also recognize the winning design of our first contest: The Mintia logo by TitO!

And of course there is the Blog! It will be the outlet for all the things that are related with Mintia, the designing industry, our community of users and our clients. Here you will find our thoughts, tips, news, press releases, designer interviews, things we like/or not, bits and pieces of the life of this thing called Mintia that we’d like for you too to call yours!

Sincerely,

Team Mintia
