Print is not dead people.
As much as some people want to say it is. Nothing puts a flutter in my tummy more than seeing something done some simply yet so perfectly.
I’m a huge fan of companies that really believe in the “Less is More” approach. One of my favorite groups of ads are from Absolut Vodka. Just a few play on words and they’re brilliant.
Speaking of brilliant. Check out some of these. The Chaplin/Hitler Hat ad is my absolute favorite and I’ve had this one saved since the year it came out. However there are some really wonderful ones below. See the rest after the jump!
Drinking has usually had some sort of connection to the reasoning behind rape or accusations of rape. There have been a countless number of cases where women have had too much to drink and have been taken advantage of. This ad was pulled by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Commission.
Their reasoning is that it puts too much responsibility on the victim.
I can see why this would strike a few nerves, but what do you think?
Miu Miu’s recent Advertisement featuring 14 year old Hailee Steinfeld was recently pulled by The Advertising Standards Authority.
They stated that she was seen in an “irresponsible place” – That being, rail road tracks wiping away tears from her eyes (hey, couldn’t it be dust?)
I really.. just have no words.
