    Amazing, beautifully designed well thematic also.

  • http://www.whatsthebigidea.com David Radovanovic

    Don’t know where in the world did you find these ads, though they’re very cool. Thanks for sharing.

    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.

  • http://iamcreative.me Aaron @ iamcreative.me

    These are some very fine examples.

    Gisele, you always provide some of the best graphical posts. Thanks for inspiration.

    ❝ The world as a gift ❞ is my favourite.

    ADV by Wolkswagen with rollercoaster and the sea with Yamaha are the best for me…a great collection!

    “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!

  • Jenn Staz

    A truly brilliant ad from Audi- works on so many levels!

    Fantastic ads! So creative :) Love the 3rd one down promoting Alerj good stuff.

  • http://www.magnesense.com Joe

    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?

    • http://gismullr.com Gisele Muller

      Thanks for pointing the error 😉

    • Lynn

      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.

      • Helen

        oh dear….i’m sorry but you, Joe and Sindigo really need to get over yourselves!!! did you all re-read your own posts multiple times just to make sure your grammar was correct?

  • Sindigo

    “Here at WDL we understand that inspiration can be found in all medias”

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

    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…”
