14 huge trends that are changing the face of design and advertising

29 Apr

Brands can use the ‘sharded self’ trend positivelyThanks to the internet, everyone has a voice. But it’s not always the nicest voice: “There are a lot of trolls out there,” pointed out Walker.One trend seen in the work submitted to this year’s D&AD Awards is that brands are starting to reformulate the negativity into a positive message. A standout project mentioned by both The Future Laboratory and the White Pencil panel was This Is Wholesome by Honey Maid, a traditional American snack brand that wanted to reposition itself as progressive.Last year, Honey Maid launched a bold campaign featuring divorced, interracial and same-sex families. It brought the company a lot of attention – not all of it good. So this year, the brand responded to its trolls with another ad juxtaposing the hate with the love.It took the negative tweets, printed them and made an instalation that spelled ‘love’, which it surrounded with positive tweets [above]. “If you want to be relevant, you have to be able to exist in the world that’s happening around you,” said Google Creative Lab executive creative director Steve Vranakis, who was on the White Pencil jury.

Funny IKEA commercial making fun of Apple

Funny IKEA commercial making fun of Apple ad video

Funny IKEA commercial making fun of Apple. I love when people take other companies perspectives or in this case make fun of what actually works when Apple creates a TV commercial / ad. IKEA decided to take on that concept and see if it works. Also it has references to a norwegian joke about Book support, that you can watch here.

IKEA does a great job at re-selling the concept of a book in a tech world filled with tablets, iPads, iPhone and tech – a bookbook = a free IKEA catalog.

I laughed so much and also because it is so well though. Nice spin-off of Apple commercials and ads. Enjoy 🙂

Fuck the poor – campaign makes us look like fools!

22 Apr

This Fuck the poor – campaign makes us look like fools! It shows how well a campaign can speak to us through video but not as much when it actually happens on the street right in front of us. It’s almost sarcastic that the end of the video shows us how we ignore something unpleasant and something we see every day. But if something is different or annoys us we speak up… This is what all successful ads and campaigns should do: Make it clear by doing something different than others.

Let me know what you think of the video – does it move your opinion of others and yourself?
