Agency M&C Saatchi has created a beautiful series of retro-looking travel ads for Transport for London that encourages Londoners to go out and explore their city.
Created for the campaign ‘Without Leaving London’, the ads show places of interest that Londoners can visit and experience without having to leave the city.
“The brief for this campaign was to show people the breath of inspiring things they can see in London, to get them out of their routines, and tell them how to get there with Transport for London,” said Grant Parker, the head of art and creative director at M&C Saatchi. “And we wanted to create something that reflects this brand’s impressive design heritage.”
"Aquilini Brands sought us to create an entirely new cooler concept from scratch. They granted us complete trust, and carte blanche… And Jaw Drop is what we came up with.
Launching in both the United States and Canada in Spring 2012, North American retailers will soon market innovative Jaw Drop cooler flavours like Sucking Lemons, Puckering Punch, Biting Oranges, Licking Limes and Blowing Raspberries.”
Stockholm-based creative agency SNASK has created a fantastic poster for the Malmö Festival 2014—it is made up of gigantic, brightly colored, three-dimensional letters, numbers and shapes.
Instead of existing just in print and on screens, this eye-catching poster takes up an entire physical area—put together by hand, this epic design took “900 hours, 14 people, 175 liters of paint, 280 plywood boards and 10,000 nails” to complete.
In addition to appearing on the festival poster, this delightful creation would be installed at the Central Park in Malmö, where visitors would be able to climb, sit on and take pictures with this “biggest design poster ever made”.
To photograph this poster, one would have to do so from a crane, 30 meters up in the air.

The users can sketch, rotate and zoom in on the drawing from any angle. Other users can even add on to the drawing.
