Soooooo, this place is open twenty four hours a day seven days a week and that's why the rooster is a bat. What?
Copacino + Fujikado, the 2013 Ad Age Small Agency of the Year: Northwest Region sent its snarky well wishes to two mega behemoth holding companies as they prepare to merge. I wonder if Publicis in Seattle can see it from their offices?
It is important to note that, had Copacino + Fujikado been part of either Publicis or Omnicom, this media placement for this would be "on the lower half of the wall in a mid level creative team's office."
See? Sometimes it pays not to have shareholders. And by "sometimes," I mean "always."
Viator is an online travel company that pre-screens tours and activities all over the world, so you don't get stuck on a lame-o trip.
San Francisco based Hub Strategy created the print, with the idea being you can feel like an insider rather then just one more tourist clutching a guide book, wearing a big straw hat and too much sun screen on their nose.
Smurfs are enticing kids to come discover the forest on billboards across America right now. And on TV.
I can't be the only mom who frowned immediately at the billboard thinking; "That's great, now the offspring will nag to go visit the forest and throw a tremendous disappoint-face when there's no smurfs there" The ad look more like an ad for a Smurf Theme Park than for the adventure that is nature. The Bait-&-switches are targeted at ever younger demographics.
So Black Sabbath returned with a fresh new album, after being off the album making scene for so many years I can't even be bothered to look it up. How do you advertise the return of a musical artist that everyone remembers from their youth (provided they had been born then)?
If you're this team at McCann Denmark, you dig your way through the many many layers of music posters that are bulking up the walls of the city, 'revealing' a black Sabbath logo at the very bottom, and then slap a label on it declaring "The Legends Return".
Cocky and brilliant.
"Liking isn' helping" yells this grunge font that seems straight from the 90s. The realistic images show a young girl stranded in a floodzone, surrounded by thumbs up, a child amputee with thumbs up and a young war victim dying, also cheered on by thumbs.
Sarcasm in PSA's. Interesting.
Awarded in Cannes! Someone liked it enough to hand it a Gold Lion. Woop!
Indianapolis based Silver in the City bills itself as "A gift site for everyone who isn't everyone."
The print certainly feels that way, too.
Their lines are hilarious, including one that disses vegans, that no doubt will get some nasty comments on this site.
I love the look of this place, too. Awesome job, peeps!
In addition to Throwing jerky out of the sky Carmichael Lynch also cooked up these posters for Jack Link's celebration of National Jerky Day. They feel very Operation Freedom. Maybe they should send the helicopter over to Syria.
Soooo, people are spending too much time playing with their gadgets instead of each other (Really? This is a problem in Brazil?).. So DKT do Brasil responded by making QR codes sell condoms. File under posters sent straight to the award shows reject bins, though I will admit the bait&switch with the 8-bit QR code sex-scene is rather funny.
Continuing with Oreo's quest to be the most social brand who borrows the most interest, this print ad announces Oreo is opening its first U.K. factory in Sheffield. The ad takes the usual non-committal we-love-everyone stance by proudly supporting both Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, and basically anything Sheffield. Borrowed interest aside, it's nice to see Sheffield got some new job opportunities.
