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.

I love these adverts from Krispy Kreme, I read about them on The Drum before actually seeing them in rea life. I was a little awed when I saw them because I thought they were only down in London or something. The colours in the ad are really nice and the large bold type of the headline really stand out. Can’t beat well set type really.

Think Blue. Symphony

Written by Chris

I’ve seen this ad quite a few times and initially I couldn’t find any videos of it or information online, maybe because it was too new but now there is! I love it, the stop motion feel of it and the lovely illustrations. The soundtrack does wonders to it too! If you like this too then you have to watch the making of video too!

Absolut Blank

Written by Chris

I absolutly love this (yes that isn’t a typo!)!! Seeing what the artists make of the blank canvas is absolutly inspiring, yes I will stop using that word now haha. The interpretations are very personal and unique to the artists and each of their characters show through. So many different styles too from the montage to the illustration and to the screen printed piece. The blank canvas concept idea is so flexible to allow such diverse range of artistic creativity to come together and blend in one single art direction.

Perth Zoo and Crunchy Nut Bus Advertisement

I came across this picture (click to view larger) whilst on my net travels. It is an Ad for Perth Zoo I believe and what an Ad it is! These kind of images that make use of the space it is in is quite remarkable.

Very clever indeed, it’s like the Crunchy Nut ads that I have seen on Buses and Billboards (see below and click to view larger). ┬áVery clever use of the wheels and the idea that a man is so mad for Crunchy Nut he must jump out of his own vehicle to grab a bowl of it. It’s also very interesting that the same media can be used for two different brands in two very different geographical locations (Australia and United Kingdom). They maybe two different countries but marketing to their target audiences are the same and that people commute a lot in these places.
