As many of you know, I graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising. With that said, I don’t talk much about my educational background and its influences on my work. To remedy this, I decided to post a few of my favorite ads from this year. These are in no particular order.
Agency: Lowe/Bangkok, Thailand
Agency: Grey/Buenos Aires, Argentina
Agency: AlmapBBDO/São Paulo, Brazil
It takes a lot of research and innovative thinking to create thought-provoking and emotion-evoking ads. I feel that the creatives behind each and every one of these did just that. Each one presented their messages loud and clear while using simple imagery. I am a huge fan of simplicity when it comes to advertising. Clutter leaves the viewer confused and it’s quite pointless at that point.
What do you think about my picks?
