Outer space will be advertising’s new frontier and, even if we’ll be too old by the time this business is going to be fully established, it’s worth to imagine how it will look like. This is a short sample of Space Ads I made up, imagining a future of cross borders (the United States of China) and new bio-technologies (Liz Taylor will be brought back to life for the joy of all of us).

The Credit Counselling Society is a registered non-profit service based in Vancouver. We created this unique business card for them by reproducing a plastic “credit card” and then cutting it in half. The name of the client and telephone number were embossed on the business card in the same way they would appear as a card holder’s name and credit card number on a real credit card.

Everything Ages Fast

Andy Reader Find

By Andy in New Trends on Saturday 7 August 2010

The Everything Ages Fast campaign for Brazil’s Maximidia Seminars features fake vintage ads for Youtube, Skype and Facebook. It got me thinking about changes in society over the past fifty years or so. Before the world went digital, people read or watched a glittering product promise, or they heard about some new wonder-product from their neighbours. They saw ads, courtesy of clever Mad Man-type folk, and they bought the promise. Then they told people about the promise.

The dust art of Scott Wade

The Uncool Hunter Reader Find

By The Uncool Hunter in New Trends on Monday 12 October 2009

Through watching cowboy movies, among other things, we’ve learned that Texas is full of dust. Fortunately, there are people such as Scott Wade who knows how to embellish something that is disgusting. Wade started to produce simple hearts or phrases such as ‘Wash me, you dirty fellow’ on the windshields and windows of cars. Later on, he improved his skills and now he can make a Mona Lisa or a Rembrandt by using the ‘dust extraction’ technique. He does not own a gallery because it should be really expensive but he has a huge permanent exhibition touring the city. The art of Wade reached the advertising world and brands such as Mitsubishi have used it in their graphic campaigns.
