Disturbing Encouragement Print Ads – Marie Claire Reproductive Health Bill Campaign

The BBDO advertising agency created these disturbing, yet much needed print ads for the Marie Claire Magazine’s Reproductive Health Bill Campaign in the Phillipines.  The ads are meant to encourage women to speak out for women’s rights regarding the fact there are no family planning centers, nor is contraception available, in one of Asia’s most populated areas.

Modern Day Surrealism

Las Vegas


Surrealistic images, whether used in art, advertising or designs are fascinating to look at and that is why they continue to draw us in.  Throughout 2008, many  Surreal advertisements and art graced the pages of the internet (see 30 Surrealist Innovations from 2008 in an article I wrote at Trend Hunter Magazine yesterday) and this trend will continue throughout 2009.  Case in point, the two ads featured above from Lado B Sound Producer:  Las Vegas and  AE Investimentos:  Strange, were created in January 2009.
