    Tomato sauce ad is really cool! Who can eat pasta without tomato sauce? We can’t and designer know it very well. But, transferring in design is really great.

    “Let’s change the nature of e-waste”

    The image of that tree is a stock image. I used it myself for a hoodie design about a year ago. That’s pretty cheap for a an “excellent” add imo. Ohterwise really cool ads!

    Great artwork, but at the top, “inspiration can be found in all medias …” Has usage evolved to the point where “media” is a SINGULAR noun requiring an “s” to make it plural? Am I being old fashioned?

      No you’re not being old fashioned, Joe. I caught that too and hoped it was not an indication of the education level at Linked In.

    “Medias” Come on, you can proof-read better than that, surely. ;)

    I love the Volkswagen Tiguan “rollercoaster” ad, they always come up with such creative marketing ideas at Volkswagen, another good example is the Audi ad, same company, both great marketing ideas.

    Awesome Collection too! Thank you for sharing!

    I love the STIHL ad with the shaggy dog. I laugh harder every time I look at it. The message is so clear. Very appropriate. I imagine the person holding the uselessly small scissors saying, “Okay, I’ll start here…er, no..maybe here..uh…well, maybe…hmmm…”
