Children’s fantasy has no limits. It’s probably because it’s not burdened by all the knowledge we get from school. Kids don’t know the laws of physics and it’s easier to imagine how it’s actually going on, than ask boring adults who don’t understand anything. Today’s selection has an advertising campaign of childrens’ TV-channel Tiji with not-quite-so-adolescent posters. Oh, and starting today we’re having a new stage in the life of our website – video publications. Be sure to watch the philosophy cartoon in the end of the post. I think you’re going to like it.
Victoria Tseluyko creates her works on a computer. But calling her works computer graphics is like saying that a synthesyzer writes music.
Victoria has been painting since early childhood – first on wallpapers, then in a hideaway under the table. Later, when the time came to learn how to draw and paint boring cubes-spheres-pyramids, she still continued doing what she liked – painting magical and kind worlds with rabbits, castles and princesses. When Victoria got a computer, she saw few but positive differences from usual drawing methods – there’s always paint and you can delete bad strokes.
Now Victoria is a modern and demanded artist and she works on bright and beautiful pictures that she liked since she was a child – and it doesn’t matter whether it will be a box of chocolates, a postcard or just a magical world painted for herself in one of the few spare nights.
Let’s talk about cars some more. The car Mini (many call it Mini Cooper, but Cooper is just the name of one of Mini’s models) was created in 1959 and then became an icon of the 60-s – the time of freedom, progress and renaissance. But it was not destined to be like that – it was made just as means of transportation that would use minimum gas and would reply to world gas crisis. In 1961 sports confuguration of this car was created - Mini Cooper S, and it made the brand famous worldwide, by winning a few Monte-Carlo rallies. It was produced practically unchanged up until 2000. Starting from 2000 a new generation of Mini appeared – under the BMW Group brand – also legendary, but very modern. In the selection you’ll see what can be made of Mini Clubman (a little larger version of Mini) b Agent Provocateur designers, who normally design underwear.
What are these people doing? Is this the largest chocolate in the world? What’s going on? Let me tell you. It’s the coolest outdoor chocolate commercial. This thing is in Toronto, Canada. I think this chocolate bar can be called a monument. Of course, it will offend all famous and great people a little bit. But chocolate saves women’s souls so often that it deserves to have a monument.
The space for creating advertising cannot be measured. There is no less then a hundred million advertising agencies and studios that do advertising design. Only the best and the most talented win. Garrigosa studio which has its branches in a few European countries, offers its own creative ideas on creating advertising. Let’s look
Creative advertising underwater from a photographer Zena Holloway, she even worked with GreenPeace and lots of other famous organizations and companies. This underwater photography has more to it than just weightless shots, water, girls and photos attract to them. I like water very much, it’s my element, I think lots of people will think like me. Let’s look and enjoy these unusual water pictures.
One of the ways to make commercials is creative photography. This is especially needed in the time of outdoor advertising. This should, of course, be the joy to the eye. And that’s what the photographers are trying to do. Nejat Talas, in my opinion, does a very good job. Here we’ve got not only advertising, but also fashion. I think you’ll see to which category each picture belongs.
A famous furniture salon LIGNE ROSET, which is very popular in the world, has been cooperating with a photographer Christian Kettiger for about 5 years now. Why? The thing is that Christian makes amazing pictures that convey the geometry, color scheme and the style of the brand. How does he do it?
Some people sell, some people buy. There are a lot of means to attract customers. But the people who make a piece of art out of advertising. An Italian studio-community LSD belongs to this category. I would have shown you some more pictures, it was hard to stop. You really should see that. The first picture is a commercial of Durex production.
