Don't wet yourself

Sometimes I see an ad and I think to myself gee that's clever.

This is one of those occasions. It's by multi awarded Swedish agency Ã…kestam Holst.

Do a wee on the ad and if you're pregnant it'll reveal a discounted price on a baby cot.

In case you were wondering it uses the same tech as pregnancy testing kits.

So yes. Clever ad.

But seriously readers what is the point?

Who else would be shopping for a cot or crib other than expectant parents.

So whilst I admire the cleverness I can't help wondering what is the point?

A sweet idea

How cute is this self promo piece by Brooklyn based graphic designer April Hansen?

Nice touch incorporating key facts about herself in the food nutrition table on the back of the chocs.

Marijuana - It's Legal

I saw on the TV news the other day that marijuana had been legalised in California.

Very progressive of them. Obviously.

So I started wondering how long it would be before the first dope ads started appearing.

And now I have the answer.

Not long at all!

This campaign is for MedMen. One of the original suppliers of medicinal marijuana.

Hardly a breakthrough campaign. But then again maybe the client wasn't in the right state of mind to reject it.

Seeing Double

So simple.

So clever.

So powerful.

Love this road safety poster from the UK.

Buy a bloody beer

The boom in craft brewing has lead to a very saturated market.

Which is great. Don't get me wrong. But it makes it bloody hard for a brand to differentiate itself.

Enter the team behind Brisbane's Newstead Brewery.

Their on-truck banter is great.

But even better when the door slides open for deliveries.

A Rigid tool?

What better way to kick off 2018 than with a calendar.

Not this year's calendar. Obviously. A calendar from 1952.

Back then a tool company could call themselves Rigid and think nothing of having women 'interacting' with Rigid tools.

Even the idea of putting Rigid tools and women in the same sentence makes me shiver.

Boy oh boy things sure were different back in the day!
