Post-it notes remind you to learn to scuba dive

New media? I never heard of anyone spreading their message via post-it notes before - not quite like this anyway. The nutty agency
Miami in Sweden has created a quirky campaign for Swedens scuba diving org website at the URL which translates to "start diving now", a campaign that is run exclusively on post-it notes.
Hand written post-its remind people to start scuba diving. "We are always looking for new ways of communicating, and to increase traffic to the Scuba Diving website the post-its felt natural and spot on." said Gustav Inger from Miami. The scuba site is also handritten on post-it notes, the idea has grown from there.

Mitsubishi buys Metros front page - in seven countries

The Colt campaign that we reported about in May Strawberryfrog drives Colt under water. is now driving us barking mad all over Europe. Posters are everywhere and the commercial with a woman driving under water flirting with some sub marine men is on all channels all the time.

How odd. To really make sure the punters see this campaign, Mitsubishi is buying the cover of Metro - in seven different countries.
