Advertising: Getting Creative

Do you ever think about what goes into creating ads for the endless sea of products for sale in the world? Well, on one of my many sleepless nights, I accidentally came across two blogs (Clusta & ...,staat) that I totally love, and discovered just how much time & effort is invested by companies that design ad campaigns. Forget for a minute about advertisers trying to sell you stuff that you don’t need by making you think that you need it. I hate being brainwashed just as much as the next person. Instead, look beyond the selling aspect to the art, the photography, the digital media, etc. Talk about super creative concepts. I mean, the work that the design people do is really phenomenal. I wish I had that kind of talent.

If you like what you see on those blogs, you can see even more by checking out the official sites for those two companies. Here are the links:

Clusta (client's include Kellogg’s, Smirnoff, Wrigley's, etc. )

...,staat (client's include Nike, Levi’s, Heineken, etc.)

  6. i do some of that at work, and you're right, no one would ever believe how much goes into it! even trying to be creative enough in the very beginning to come up with some crazy farfetched idea that might grab people. and for the most part people discard it and are annoyed by it haha.

  10. As a fellow creative - was a Senior Designer for McDonald's Uk and a Design Manager for a publishing company in London - there is so much that goes into a simple ad. People have no idea how much work goes into one seemingly simple message for a product. Tis a crazy world hehe
