Creative Advertisements of Cars – For those who are first, and those who aren’t!

You can always learn creativity from Car Ads – they have something new to offer everytime one of the big companies (or their agencies) come up with their adverts. Sometime back, an Ad from Honda won them the Grand Prix at Cannes. Since then, Honda Ads are always popular among Creative enthusiasts. Last year, even Fiat “eco Drive” won them a grand prix at that Cannes Lions. So here are 2 more I could manage…

Smoking Creativity on a Burning Issue – the old and the new! (New York & France)

If you are into creatives, you would know (more) – Chicks, Children, Canines and Cigarettes – you don’t need to sell them, for they sell on their own. But for the sake of sheer creativity, though, they are, what one can say, ‘essential ingredients’ of any viral campaign. No wonder this space has mentioned Cigarettes in a lot of previous entries (as it has Chicks, Children and Canines as well) Imagine cigarettes being a cure-all…

Leveraging Social Media – Crop or Crunches (Costa Rica)

Just realized that I still haven’t posted the post on Tiger Woods, that I had been working on for almost 2 weekends. Actually, I was too busy with my social media world and trying to exercise. That’s why, when I glanced through a campaign which is a mix of social media and Gymming, it had to be posted here. Have a look at this campaign, and if you are a regular at Facebook, twitter or…

Coca-Cola Happiness Machine – Vending out Happiness

While I spend my time in getting something interesting on Christ, I found this interesting ambient from Coca-Cola’s Shelf. Had earlier talked about Coke’s “Happiness Factory” campaign almost 3 years back– the best part is it is still one of most talked about global campaigns in the advertising world! The new ambient “Happiness Machine” clearly calls out Coca-Cola as a source of happiness – its just that is the vending machine now which vends out…

My Dad – My Soldier!

One has to muster a lot of courage to write about pain. It is easy to express pain through your senses, but not through your hands. Changing the font, expressing it from your heart and then articulating it, does not seem to be an easy task.
