These are fantastic (and mythical) landscapes that you can supposedly reach with the new Mitsubishi Strakar L200.

“We selected only the best spots for your trip.”
Folha Top 10’s Travel Guides for London, New York and Paris are conveyed graphically with this simple idea to highlight the places themselves.

These adverts are for “Freddy : One Man Theatre” with a tagline “Freddy supporting the movement for inner joy and happiness”.
I’ve no idea if it is as obvious and innocent as that, but I do like the adverts. I think its something to do with looking like a model and having some connection with puppetry. Innocent, but also maybe a little sinister.

I don’t think this concept for advertising the Braun Nose Hair Trimmer is the most original of advert concepts, but nevertheless has a touch of humour.
Using portrait shots always has some degree of enticement to the viewer. Its human nature to be more drawn to another human than say, just a shot of some hair.
The creators must have had some fun in directing these guys to act a little serious and a little proud to show off their nasal creations, but with a touch of parody.

You don’t need to be a Star Wars fan to understand this clever idea to advertise a Star Wars Exhibition.
But if you are, you know that seeing two fluorescent light tubes like this sets off that yearning for light sabre waving.
Great stuff by advertising agency, TBWA\Brussel, Belgium.

I’ve subscribed to the the photography showcase site Inpholio.com for awhile now – I think since it first launched. Every now and again, I receive their news email which contains the latest submissions to their website.
The photography presented, always seems to catch my eye, so I thought I’d mention it here as a worthwhile place to visit if you’re interested in professional photography or like to see how “commercial” photography is supposed to look!

Here’s advertising campaign that caught my eye. Cleverly implied visuals for these German knife products.
“Canova never thought of carving a radish, but then again, he probably never had knives like those made by WMF.
“Those sharp blades of steel not only enabled the replication in radish of his Three Graces, but also the embodiment of the classical aesthetic in such unlikely materials as pineapple and carrot.”

As a designer, I sometimes see nothing more indulgent in a project than being able to create your own visual world, least of all, for a global brand such as Coca Cola!
The Happiness Factory must have been one hell of a dream for the designers! A lovely, surreal flash world, which seems to be expanded from their motion graphics advert a few years ago, depicting the creation of a bottle of Cola from a vending machine.
The world is populated with lively characters with attitude, including a dancing workman, during the sites loading screens.
I will have this site (and a download of the advert) permanently bookmarked for those moments of despair, when I need a little hope and happiness!

I’ve often thought of getting a scooter in London, since there is so much traffic, but I don’t drive around as much as I used to, so haven’t made the plunge.
If I start driving to work one day, then this clever advert for Vespa sums it all up really. I think it was shown in Australia, but the nature of traffic is universal.
I love the trail of colour left in an otherwise drab and dreary landscape, and the fact that they haven’t even shown the scooter product.

Barclay’s new combined Oyster travel card, credit card and OneTouch transaction card, sounding very convenient to Londoners like myself, hints at the future of commerce.
No wonder then that these new advertisements for Barclaycard show how London might look in the future; London as a fairground, and rooftop golf in the City.
I suppose it could happen to any city, but I must admit, seeing something I’m so familiar with, being portrayed in a new light, especially as fantastic (and unpractical) as this, is just really eye-catching.
I’d love for these landscapes to be real – being able to roller coaster around the sights of London and seeing so much green space around the city.
The visuals were created by Jean-Marie Vives and Mathieu Raynault, who have worked as matte painters for blockbuster movies including the Matrix, Lord of the Rings and King Kong.
