Last day to vote for your fave Chip Shop…

Just a quickie to remind you that today is the last day you can vote for your favourite Chip Shop entry. I’m completely unbiased this year, what with not entering anything this year… though I have to admit, I’ve given

Nice and local

Okay, so I admit it – it was the word Leeds that first drew my attention to these ads – but on closer attention, they’re really rather good. The faces alone, with their confused, wirey patterns are enough to portray

Best Use of Plagiarism

Okay, so you probably remember me raving about the Chip Shop Awards and the 3 awards I picked up last year. Well, it’s that time again and the Nominations (now called Finalists) have just been announced. As usual, there are

Now you see it, now you don’t!

The disappearing stain, that’s the mystery here. From a distance you can see it, but close up it’s gone. Go on, take a look. Click the picture (so it’s big enough to see) then step away from your computer and

A little smile with every one…

This advert made me smile. The idea caught my attention, you could see there was something there, something worth looking at. But the line, well that’s just marvellous isn’t it? Publicis Mojo, Brisbane, Australia Creative Director: Andy Ward Art Director:

A rather disturbing advert

Is it just me or do you find this advert a tad disturbing. I mean, I know what they’re trying to do, I get the point… but… urgh! Below the belt. BDDP & Fils, France

A car ad that infiltrates the pages of a women’s mag…

Okay, so before I start this post, I just want to point out that I don’t have a strange obsession with cars – I don’t drive and I wouldn’t even know a VW from a Ford! But there do seem

More snow on the way…

Yep, the weather report says we can expect more snow. So the wellies are coming out for another week of hellish attempts to stay upright. No doubt I’ll be reporting my latest fall on Twitter in the next week. However,

Heavy-weight Ford Ad

Looks like I’m having a week of car-related ads. This time it’s Ford that got my attention. Their ambient piece shows just how impressive the towing capacity on the Ford F-150 really is… JWT, Detroit, USA Executive Creative Director: Toby

Guerrilla Advertising II

I didn’t start my career in advertising the ‘usual’ way, with an advertising degree and an internship. I blagged my way in with a BA Hons and an MA in English. So I figured it was my duty to throw

Bags: always an advertising medium

Well, bags have been put to use as an advertising medium for as long as I can remember (I know, I’m not exactly elderly but the phrase sounded nice). Anywho, these well-designed carriers make the ‘advertising’ a little more blatant…
