Art, is this real?

This is Grapevine:

Grapevine is a monthly free gig listing guide found in pubs and venues across East Anglia, (well, Ipswich mostly).

This Is Real Art:

This is Real Art Showreel from This is Real Art on Vimeo.

This Is Real Art are are a design and advertising company based in London who work for such clients as Coca Cola, D&AD, Dept. for Transport, Economist, Manhattan Loft Corporation, MTV, Tate, Waterstones and a host of cultural and social organisations. You can see the sort of stuff from the showreel.

Good, aren't they!

This is a typical spread from Grapevine:

Hmmm, good isn't it.

This is an advert for a web developer that appeared in Grapevine this month (click on image for larger view):

This advert is for This Is Real Art.

This struck me as an odd placement as it caught my attention.

Then I realised it had caught my attention.

This then struck me as a very savvy placement—Ipswich: new University with creative courses; large BT tech outpost up the road in Martlesham; cheaper wage expectancy workforce outside of London; cheap ad rates in Grapevine, and many creatives in the town will leaf through Grapevine to scan what's happening locally gig wise, despite its obvious design acumen. Just as I do every month.

Very interesting. I wonder if many outsiders will be advertising in our local places? I hope so.

Most of magazines have more information read with. Magazine contents are usually in full details, and usually there are different contents for every topic such as technology, health, fashion, and more.
