    All of these print ads are very inspiring and creative. The designs have very little time to grab the customers attention so must be hard-hitting and eye catching. All of the above examples have this impact.
    This kind of thing is the opposite to web design, where users are encouraged to navigate the site and enjoy the whole experience.

    Of all the “round-ups” type articles, these are by far my favorite. They encourage clever, outside-the-box thinking. Thanks for the round-up!

    Not surprising that so many showcase animals. People are suckers for ads with animals and humanizing them with humor is a sure way to a hit.

    Thanks for the morning laugh. Had to send these around. With the flood of advertising into our every day lives, I have noticed most people, unless told to look carefully and read the ad, will completely miss the funny message and situation.

    I have to click, and click back 30 times; or open 30 new tabs or windows, because you’re too lazy to make a page I can scroll down? Meh.
