Ignition Develops Arrested Development’s Campaign
Shortlist’s own Ignition created the hilarious campaign for Netflix’s Arrested Development and dare we say (at two episodes in) is probably funnier than the fourth season.
Check out this great article on Hubspot that highlights the best moments of the campaign here! Our favorite line: "The campaign is not only hilarious and brilliantly executed, but it also focuses on one of the main components of inbound marketing: content."
Legwork & Their Stellar New Site
What happens when you’re too busy making award winning work for your clients? It takes you three years to update your own website. Well, we can safely say it was worth the wait.

52 Webby Nominations For The Shortlist Roster
The award season is starting to kick up in high gear and with that the Shortlist roster has racked up an impressive and quite frankly astonishing 52 Webby official and honorary nominations! HUSH, STOPP, B-REEL, TOOL of NORTH AMERICA, MOXIE PICTURES, LEGWORK, IGNITION and SOUTH Music & Sound Design all picked up nods!
The talented crew at Legwork was recognized for their innovative work on Paranorman’s official film site, done in collabortion with Wieden Kennedy, Portland, which you can check out here if you haven’t already!
Last year, Ignition had the opportunity to create massive online campaigns and experiences for The Hunger Games and Prometheus- everything from conception through execution- both of which were given nominations and recognition in multiple categories.
Tool of North America received more nominations and recognition than anyone else on the roster with a total of 17 tips of the hat! Interactive and integrated projects for Google, Virgin, JFK Museum, and a music video for Sigor Ros directed by Alma Har’el were some of the few to be selected.
Last and definitely not least, our latest roster addition, SOUTH Music & Sound Design was nominated for their NCAA Tournament work for AT&T.
A huge congratulations to our immensely talented roster! We are so proud and excited to be part of the team! We can’t wait to see what the rest of award season brings!
