Coca cola Direct Marketing campaign

Coca Cola fm launched an interesting direct mail campaign, where they turn a magazine into a sound amplifier. Clever design, interactive, and I can see customers keeping the product to use as their speaker.

Carlsberg Beer- Advertising stunt

Very clever!
The producers of this beer  commercial borrowed a small150 seat cinema playing a popular film…….
Then filled 148 of its seats with rough-looking, Tattooed Bikers, leaving only two free seats in the middle of the theatre……
They then allowed theater management to sell the last pair of tickets to several young couples.

What would you do…….?

Reminds me of some work we did in a Uni Life drawing class where we were learning about bone structure, proportion and light and dark. To do this we would draw a skull, then the face over top, then the skull again and then continue the process over and over, eventually you end up with a blended picture.

Being creative with advertising

Advertising the release of Finding Nemo 2. Maybe a little disturbing for little kids who like sushi?

Awesome idea, effective, easy to produce and cheap!

Ikea are the kings of clever advertising. Visually appealing, effective, clear message, and fun!

Australia's Commonwealth Bank are currently running their 'cant' campaign. This is a great example of a suspense or building campaign, deliberately using vague advertising that leaves people questioning what the product is and what it means. Initially using bus advertising, billboards and press to advertise the sole word 'CANT'- leaving people to question 'what is cant?' and then rolling into TV and further billboard signage to reveal the full message. Really effective at capturing audience attention and brand building. Removing one letter of the word 'cant' leaves you with 'can'- commonwealth bank can!
