Well Designed Jewelry Billboard

At first glance, she’s giving you the one finger salute.  When you look again, you realize it’s not exactly the right finger. This billboard for Robbins Diamonds is both effective and funny, and I can imagine there are a lot of ladies out there who appreciate the help of encouraging their boyfriends to ‘put a ring on it.’

IKEA Subway Promotion

From March 10-24, Parisian subways travelers will get to experience a truly unique type of advertising.  Swedish furniture maker IKEA has developed an interesting marketing and advertising “event” in four of the larger metro stations. Consumers can interact with furniture collections first-hand while they are on display, giving the potential customers a chance to try out the products. Additionally, the station walls behind each furniture set-up are  filled with large prints that offer ideas for IKEA interiors, as well as promote the actual product branding.

I think that the idea is very unique, however I feel that vandalism could occur.  This could turn out to be an extremely successful campaign, or a total flop; I’m rooting for option 1.

Check out the pictures below:

Sao Paulo, Brazil is Outdoor Ad Free

It may be old news, but it sure is something to think about…

Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, is ad free.  From the original article on Web Urbanist: “In September of 2007, the world’s fourth-largest metropolis was scrubbed of almost every type of outdoor advertising– even pamphlets. It’s all part of mayor Gilberto Kassab’s quest to eliminate visual clutter, making the city itself the focal point rather than colorful, increasingly desperate marketing campaigns.”  Check out the video below to see some before-and-after shots:

While I understand the reasoning behind the decision, I still feel that it is extreme.  Advertising can be art, and when it isn’t obtrusive or offensive I don’t mind (and often enjoy) looking at it.  Read the original article (linked above) for more details and photos.
