First, here's the ad that gals will find in Cosmo Secondly, here's the ad that guys will find in their manly magazines... I was particularly won over by the Molson example from 2004. Here, the advertising set a goal of helping guys impress the ladies. Being tongue in cheek, Crispin created fake magazine covers for fictional books such as Trustfund , Animal Rescuer , and Aspiring Groom (above). I saw a case study that says these ads were read at 2x the rate of other beer ads and increased brand favorability from 29% to 60%. Further, according to Porter, these ads actually drove higher magazine sales! As I mentioned yesterday, when your customer pays for your marketing, it’s meaningful.

Brother printers - Printed own poster To demonstrate that new Brother’s ink printer A3 multifunction, the MFC-6890CDW, can print lots and lots without hiccup, the made the product advertised print it's own poster. Thusly, we now have seen the (likely first) advertising poster printed in A3 sheets alone.
Axe - New Day&Night - SMS interactive print ad Take a good look guys, because this is one of the few times you'll see this new tech as an interesting feature in an ad, soon it will become old hat. Adlist has been chatting about it, opining that it's great new tech. It actually works better for Playboy, or anything else that serves to give you the whole picture , rather than a perfume which once upon a time had fun advertising telling you that it magically attracts ladies - even recycled cans had that effect on women . These days Axe has lost their tone of voice and just slap ladies in lingerie all over. I can't tell if its a Victoria Secret ad sometimes. ;)

WAL-MART IS RUNNING OUT But if you haven't got your 3-D glasses yet, I'm afraid I have a spot of bad news for you. The Wal-Marts are running out of the free 3-D glasses. But don't panic, keep reading. Two days ago, I stopped by my local Wal-Mart, and noticed their free Hannah Montana 3-D glasses display was empty. I thought perhaps they were keeping their stock in reserve, so I asked the store manager when he planned to put more glasses out. (I hasten to add that I didn't want to take any more for myself, I just needed to know so I could report on this.) He told me: never! The Hannah glasses were already gone, and they would not be getting any more. I wasn't terribly concerned. Just because one store had run out, it didn't necessarily mean that the national supply of Hannah Montana glasses was in jeopardy. But then I read, on the 3-D Revolution blog , that Disney only distributed a paltry one million pairs of free glasses for this promotion! A million? It might sound like a large number, but there are about 4,000 Wal-Mart stores in the United States. If that figure is correct, that means, on average, each store had about 250 pairs of Hannah glasses to offer. So, if you don't have your free Hannah Montana 3-D glasses yet, I would estimate your odds of finding them at your local Wal-Mart today to be about zero. [CORRECTION: I have subsequently learned that Disney really gave away 25 million pairs of the glasses through Wal-Mart, not 1 million as "3D Revolution" wrongly reported.] AN IMPORTANT WARNING The good news is, you can still make your own 3-D glasses in time for the concert. But I'm begging you, girls, please, please, do not use Sharpie markers and plastic wrap for the lenses, the way the Starz channel instructs you to do! The colors will be uneven and will not filter properly; the plastic will wrinkle and pucker; the concert will stink. And for days afterward, you will look like this:

Haagen-Dazs supports cause Häagen-Dazs "Save the Honey Bee" 2008 campaign. Summary Häagen-Dazs used a Public Agenda vehicle to help reclaim falling market share, create a bond between their brand and consumers, and truly differentiate themselves from their competitors. That vehicle turned out to be the honeybee. Issue Ice cream maker Häagen-Dazs found itself in a predicament. Not only was their market share threatened by competitors, price hikes were hurting sales. On top of this, consumers had little connection with the brand. Marketing solution Research identified Häagen-Dazs customers as being conscious about what they eat and where it comes from. With this in mind, Häagen-Dazs linked their product’s core ingredient to one of the most biting social issues – the extinction of the honey bee.
Weeds is an HBO show based on the premise of a single mother making ends meet by dealing pot. This print ad for the show includes a scent strip that smells like pot. Or so I'm told. How would I know what pot smells like?
The poster book Having carried out my 3 years at Bath Spa I often switched between doing graphic design and animation/interactive design and didn't like being narrowed down to one area and having a title given to what sort of designer I was. I wanted to create a project that questioned the popular misconception that interactive design had to be on a screen. I created an interactive poster, which most people on first hearing the name thought was a screen based project. In fact it started as an A6 sized 'Poster Book' which included a book of 1cm squared stickers in red, green, blue, yellow and black, an example alphabet and an A1 sized grided poster. The idea was that people could stick the squares onto the grid to create pixellated text and images; a sort of instant(ish) and professional poster.
Shift into newspapers In a media first, Nissan ran a blank front page in one of Brazil’s largest Sunday newspapers, inviting readers to “shift” and make their own front-page stories. Advertising problem Arriving late in Brazil, Nissan was still a small player in the automotive market. They had to invigorate the brand’s relationship with Brazilian drivers as well as launch the worldwide brand proposition: Shift . To achieve this objective they looked to newspapers, which was also identified as the most important research vehicle that people consulted when buying cars. For the first time in history, The State of Sao Paulo , one of Brazil’s largest papers ran a blank front page to creatively facilitate the brand proposition. Nissan wanted to shift people’s relationship with the news. Rather than have people passively reading the news, it wanted them to become the news. Campaign execution The campaign started with subscribers receiving their Sunday newspaper with the front page being absent of all articles and headlines; only an ad for Nissan appeared inviting readers to produce their own news. To participate, readers went to the newspaper’s website, clicked on the Nissan banner ad and went to a related microsite where they could customise the front page with their own headlines, images and articles. The following Sunday, each person who had participated in the promotion was front page news. Their news stories and photos were actually printed on the cover of The State of Sao Paulo with a Nissan ad running on the bottom. More than 1,000 personalised front pages were distributed to the door step of consumers. A full-page Nissan ad ran on the next page, saying “Now that you’ve read the news, you have a whole day to buy a new car". Results The campaign yielded the largest response for a newspaper promotion in Brazil – outstripping even those that give away cars and TVs. The promotion doubled brand familiarity; and it has a multiplier effect in terms of visibility - people showed it to friends and family, and due to its personal nature, the newspaper would be kept for years to come. The campaign generated high publicity, making two front pages in a row. This Be the News campaign won a Cannes Media Gold Lion for Best Use of Newspapers The campaign ran in 2008.
