In a tech-zealous adaptation of the WWJD? wristband trend, The Sound Advice Project lets parents record DON'T-DO-DRUGS! messages, which are translated into a "three-dimensional representation" and made into bracelets for impressionable weebies.
We dig how some of the printwork totally plays on pre-ado insecurities: "His voice is cracking. He embarrasses easily. Now is the perfect time to buy him a bracelet."
Oh, that's just malevolent. But it probably merits pointing out that any kid willing to wear Mummy's good intentions on his sleeve is probably more at risk of getting his favourite snowcap stolen than of smoking a blunt after school.
Diggin' these prints by DM9 DDB/Brazil. In each, a FedEx delivery box is positioned as a conduit for items that bear some storytelling cachet. Two sets of hands, reaching toward each other from top and bottom of the frame, represent giver and receiver.
Perfect delivery, no pun intended. (Don't you hate it when people say that? Because if the pun isn't intended, isn't it terrifically convenient that it's there?)
See Trumpet -- the more popular piece -- and Robot.
Gery Colombia interprets Scotch-Brite for whimsical clean-freaks with print ads where rubber gloves are manipulated in the shape of animal bits. At left is Chicken; also see Cow and Crab.
Not - terrifically - original, and heavy with the Real Simple aesthetic.
Wonder who still uses kitchen gloves to wash dishes. It'd be interesting to see a semi-campy glove ad where these bad-boys are used in unexpected -- and yet useful! -- ways. Like putting them on your feet to tightrope over electrified wire. Or something.
You've gotta love when a butterfly says, "It's up to you to help the planet. And if you don't, well, I'll rain an assemblage of caltrops down on you like Greek fire." Which is why we love this new TDA Advertising-created campiagn for 1% For the Planet.
The organization urges people to buy from its stores and urges businesses to sell their wares through the store. One percent of every sale goes to environmental causes
Zippo wises up to its cachet as a potentially "green" product with a brusque new slogan: "Disposable. Just another word for garbage."
On print and banner ads alike, this profundity is flanked by images of dirty disposable lighters, piled up in junkyards. See trash cube, earthbound briquets and three-part display ad.
Creatively, the latter is a disappointing downgrade from this naughty beast. But it gets the point across, and display's cheap these days anyway, so we can't hate with much conviction.
Expect to see the prints in trade pubs, at convenient stores and your local tobacconist. By Brunner/Pittsburgh.
At left is a print piece called "Black is Beautyfull," in which a grinning clay Klansman offers a meager bouquet of flowers to a simpering black chick with a 'fro.
In a variant, "Fun Religion," a Muslim and a Jew surrender to the call of John Travolta, circa 1977.
It's an unfortunate stereotype that eco crusaders look more like the wildlife they seek to protect than they do their fellow man. And it's apparently not unique to the States: riffing off this cruel assumption, Air/Brussels developed the ad at left for cosmetic firm Biocorner.
The side of the ad marked "Avant" (Before) depicts your standard tree-hugger: stringy hair, sordid complexion and whale-watcher clothes. On the side marked "Apres" (After), the same woman is transformed into a black-clad vixen with Pantene locks and Scarlett O'Hara eyebrows.
Tagline: "No Need to be Ugly to Save the Planet." I don't know -- she's gonna be pretty cold on that whale boat unless she puts her layers back on.
OLSON/Minneapolis promoted NSF International, a certification company that certifies things like bottled water and appliances, by depicting tiny laborers working tirelessly around your kitchen gear. (Just imagine if the shoemaker's elves were actually firemen, and they were deeply concerned about the quality of your saucepan.)

Campaign tagline: "Live Safer." Catch it in magazines like Parenting, Cooking Light, Men's Fitness and Health. There'll also be an online component that extends beyond sending emails to ad sites.
Hoping to battle the apparent escalation of violence in Vancouver and to encourage people to come forward if they have information about criminal activity, a new pro bono PSA campaign from DDB Canada informs, "You remain anonymous, criminals don't."
The out of home and print campaign for Greater Vancouver Crime Stoppers depicts crimes in progress with the criminal in focus and the victims and witnesses pixelated which supports the campaign's tagline.
Explaining the strategy behind the creative, DDB Canada Creative Director Dean Lee said, "Pixelation is instantly recognized and commonly associated with the reporting of criminal activity. But this time it's used to illustrate the anonymity of providing crime-solving tips. People need to realize their tips are completely anonymous, that tipsters have nothing to fear and can make a real difference in helping make Vancouver a safer city to live in."
We like the simplicity of the campaign. It's not over-engineered and it, both visually and sith copy, makes the point quickly.
jetBlue's released a big wordy poster, calling out all the guys that used to be too good to fly with others: C-suite execs, "Underwriters of Mortgage-Backed Securities, Former Treasury Secretaries," et cetera, et cetera.
The bottom of the ad pithily reads "WELCOME ABOARD." There's also a separate section of the jetBlue.com site labeled "Welcome Bigwigs," which details the PERKS! everybody on jetBlue gets.
"The Best Seat in Coach" is high up there, followed closely by "All the Free Snacks You Can Eat." (Actually, that's pretty appealing. United's stingy about peanuts, AND they charge for boxed lunch.)
The WELCOME ABOARD, FORMER CASH-MONEY BALLERS!* effort is part and parcel of its ongoing Happy Jetting campaign, which loves itself some stencil clouds and ALL-CAPS.
