The king of posters?

Every once in a while I see a print ad or poster that communicates its message with a wry smile.

This is one of those.

Kudos to Zulu Alpha of Toronto.

What's up pussycat?



It's been ages since I posted an 'only in Japan' TV ad. This one is a classic!

Bullshit free beer


Good. But not as good as the mighty Moo Brew from Tasmania.

Shazamed ads on TV

Do people really Shazam ads?

I mean the media is constantly telling us that young people don't watch TV.

And apparently they don't trust advertising or brands either.

So why the hell would they be turning on their smartphones and pointing at the telly when adverts come on?

Oh dear...

People often ask me about the difference between a designer and an art director.

It's simple.

An art director's job is ensure an ad communicates its message clearly.

A good art director would never ever think using a citrus segment as a substitute for the letter G was a good idea.

At least I hope not!

Are you a digital sinner

The seven digital deadly sins is heaps of fun.

It's also easy to while away some time there.

So before you find out if you are a sinner be sure put aside a few minutes of time.

Have fun!

Celebrating together

An agency celebrating on behalf of their client is something you don't see everyday. But I have to say I like it. A lot.
