Finally got through another annual from Communication Arts – what I really like about the 2013 advertising annual is that the ads featured in the magazine are simple yet engaging. There’s nothing better (and harder to do) than an idea that is smart and makes you think about what’s being communicated. Rather than skimming through these ads, I have to stop and think about not only the message, but also the creative way that the message is being communicated (i.e. design). Some of my favorites are below – all with a subtle yet intriguing thing about each of them.
