Velvet’s Campaign for Trees

Written by Chris
Velvet Tissues Facebook page and app

I came across a campaign from Velvet whilst browsing Facebook, a few of my friends like the Velvet’s Campaign for trees page. Upon investigation there is a promotion on their page where you sign up on the online app and you will get a free pack of Velvets Balm Pocket Tissues.

Nice little bit of marketing but of course there is more, you will also be given a coupon for 75p off your next purchase of an 8 x Velvet Balm pocket pack. Lots of little nice incentives to draw consumers into buying the brand. I also took a little look on their website and found this green scheme they have going called Three trees promise. Basically they plant three trees for every one they use up. You can read more about this by clicking here. It is always important these days to a big company to show they care about things other than profit making and green campaigns are always a good way to do this.

American-Apparel-Nude-Adverts

No stranger to controversey, nude American Apparel ads have been banned and it comes to no surprise for those familiar to AA advertising campaigns. It was reported earlier today that Advertising Standards Agency have put the lid once more on the latest campaign from the trendy fashion retailer. The adverts in question displayed the breasts and buttocks of the models and were described in complaints as “pornographic”. The ASA later stated that the ads were exploitative and the gratuitous nudity would causwe widespread offence. They were warned not to use similar images that were exploitative and sexualised women again.

Written by Chris
It's a Sneaker Thing brochure found in Footlocker

I was in Footlocker today when I came across their in-house catalogue (pictured right).

I picked it up immediately out of curiosity. There are some nice page layouts in there and the magazine does look pretty cool. Like the image below for example. The shoes are arranged in a non-conventional matter and it works rather quite well.
