HELLO, I AM FANIS


...AND THIS WAS AN ONLINE EXPERIMENT...IDEAS FOR MY FAVORITE BRANDS!

Fanis Poulinakis was born on Jan. 6th on the island of the Minotaur, Crete. Since 2001 he creates ideas and experiences that make heartbeats go faster for either TV or Digital. He also has myopia. For that reason, instead of becoming a pilot, he is fascinated to create habit-forming products. He is currently exploring New York. He loves Goldendoodles and hates Resumes!

  • SERIES

    WHAT I WATCH

    I’m a TV Series Geek… I literally watch every series that is out there. I am heavily into writers and their work and astonished with some of the characters they create.

    My favorite is definitely Aaron Sorkin. “Newsroom” is a serious standout! I’ve been hooked lately with BBC’s “The Fall”, one of the best murder-dramas I’ve ever watched. Among others, I am a fanatic of course of “The Following”, “Downtown Abbey”, “Doctor Who” and “Absolutely Fabulous”!

  • MUSIC

    WHAT I LISTEN TO

    I am a POP guy and not ashamed about it! I admire for marketing reasons Madonna – there should be a college marketing class about her – and all the artists that have been N1 for more than 20 years. It means something..right? Michael Jackson, is in my opinion one of the best things that have happened in music in the twentieth century.

    I also follow a singer called Monica (find her on Youtube), Matisyahu, a group named The Pierces and also Crystal Castles.

  • TEXT

    WHAT I READ

    I came up with a list of 8 books that I consider must-reads for all creatives, wannabe leaders and emotional people.

    Just listen (Mark Goulston), Damn Good Advice (George Lois), The Art of Seduction (Robert Greene), Flying without Fear (Duane Brown), A Technique of Producing Ideas (James Webb Young), Whatever You Think Think the Opposite (Paul Arden), The Dog Listener (Jan Fennel), Plato Complete Works (John Cooper)

  • WEB

    WHERE I SURF

    As an early adopter, tech aficionado and net lover I like to try every new product at least once. I always question everything and try to understand why things work. I appreciate the fact that some of the best things online are still free!

    Here is a list of what I use on a daily basis. (Expect it to change often)
    Google Maps, Embark, Pulse News, BuzzFeed, Seamless, Skitch, Pocket, Business Insider, Spotify, TuneIn, FourSquare, Google Keep, NowThisNews, HuffPost, HBO Go, Kindle

About the mission // I believe emotional excess is fundamental to creativity. Great art was born of great wars. I have a pile of stuff in my brain from all the books, movies, streets, countries, sounds, conversations and faces I've encountered. I take notes. Notes of everything. I create ideas. I reach millions with them. This is an online experiment to keep me sane...Brainstorming for my favorite brands! More details here!

  • MORNINGS SHOWS: CELEBRATING AMERICA’S DIVERSITY!

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Ideas: TV

    No Comments

    United States is among the most diverse countries in the world. People across every state try to make their dreams come true! Who are they? What are the products made only in America? What are the living differences from one state to the other? Celebrating life and great achievements in the U.S!

    This is a just quick brainstorming (took 25 minutes of my time) and  I believe they can be ideal for morning shows (Good Morning America, Today Show, CBS This morning, New Day  etc. Some of the ideas might have been broadcasted before, since I have been watching them constantly for only the last year. Hope you Enjoy!

    “Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others. ” ― Plato

    Here’s how it goes:

    I’ve reached a point in my life where I’ve needed to reinvent myself. I strongly believe when we reach what we feel is our highest point at that time in our lives, we owe to ourselves to reset and start all over again.

    I quit an amazing career and being one of the top creative talents to explore new worlds, new cities (so New York City here I come!), and create new experiences. I want to increase heartbeats for an even larger audience…After all it’s all about the heart…isn’t it?

  • “KATIE SHOW” THIS IS FOR YOU…A NEW IDEA FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON!

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Ideas: TV

    No Comments

    The Katie show has been running for almost a year now and has had some very good moments and some so so ones. As in every other show, the first season is usually a trial and error. It does take time to find out what show ideas fit best both the TV Host/Hostess and the audience.

    As a TV Director + Ideas Specialist for a Daily, 3-hour live show targeted to women (For 4 years, I had to wake up super super early…Grrrr), I do have the feeling that if they do continue for a 2nd season (I hope so – there is so much trash out there that should be canceled instead!) they should go much bigger!

    Here is what I mean…

  • AOL’S HOMEPAGE RE-IMAGINED?

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Ideas: Digital

    Company: AOL
    Target: Homepage – AOL.com
    Time consumed: 62 minutes.

    AOL is one of my favorite companies and many of your favorite websites are owned by them (TechCrunch, Engadget, Moviefone, Patch, Stylist,TUAW to name a few). I totally disagree with those who are skeptical regarding the company’s prospects. AOL’s homepage should more effectively showcase the different content partners/brands and become a major part of the company’s rebranding. I brainstormed for about an hour, worked with a designer-friend and came out with some ideas.
