Four executions in the campaign for the Cape Times paper: 'A Riveting Read' are made from newspaper clippings that make up a relevant shape. for example, a bulldozer shape is made by articles about the crises Zimbabwe is experiencing.

Nicole Redelinghuys, art director at Lowe Bull said: "We wanted to make a statement that people could relate to - a statement that would have an effect on the readers and encourage them to engage their minds.

Axe campaign shows older women as predators

Axe has the whole "women go mad" idea nailed down as theirs only ever since they blasted out big nutty ads like the Paid piper commercial back in '99. Naturally this makes Axe/Lynx a great client to work on, and Lowe Bull in Johannesburg, South Africa won't deny it.
"Axe is a fabulous brand to work on for our creatives, it revolves around the now renowned 'Axe Effect" which essentially means if you wear Axe, you'll always get the woman or women of your dreams," commented Lynn Madeley, regional communications director at Lowe Bull.

A reply to "Hello Boys"

Oh my!
The headline is a slang pun asking "How does my bra fit" but can also be read as "How are you my brother?", giving a nod to the "Hello boys" wonderbra poster. The tagline is "we are all sizes BIG and TALL" which is the name of the store.
