Hoping to take the euphemistic "special" out of "Special Olympics," TDA ADVERTISING & DESIGN/Boulder developed a print campaign that focuses on the sporting similarities between the event you watch and that other one.
"The typical perception of 'Special Olympics' is young children with Down Syndrome, playing track and field. We want to change that," said VP-Marketing Heather Hill of the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games. "The majority of our athletes are serious, adult competitors."
There's a brand repositioning worth throwing some weight behind.
Variants include "Slalom" and Ice Rink. If so inclined, you can also read the radio script.
In a set of prints put together by THE REPUBLIK/Durham, boat manufacturer Wellcraft Marine Corp. appeals to salty sea dogs by emphasizing the rugged freedom and independent nature of life on choppy water.
o "Nothing tastes better than freshly outsmarted fish." (At left.)
o "Bowlines moor boats to docks. Windor knots moor men to desks." Ooh, seaman pwnage.
o "You've never been seasick. Bet you've been landsick a few times though."
o "You wouldn't be caught dead with a fruit in your beer. Unless, of course, you were dying of scurvy."
Each bears weathered-looking imagery, a Wellcraft logo and tagline, "The Boater's Boat."
"The sun goes wherever you go" Nivea says -- not too loudly, either -- in "Church," a tanning oil ad.
No need for sunkissed girls or an exaggerated product demo; a festive beach towel, draped over a skeletal pew in a sunless gray church, does the job fine. It's even a little wity: all that hallowed sobriety, broken by beach gear.
Good stuff by TBWA/Frederick, Chile.
Sensing a recession isn't exactly an enabler for Jimmy Choos and Prada handbags, Saks Fifth Avenue takes on the marketing style of Communism ... and Stolichnaya.
The high-end department store tapped Shepard Fairey, architect of the familiar Obama Hope poster, to infuse worker's morale into its Spring 2009 "Want It!" campaign.
Ontario College of Art & Design puts Masterminds on the pedestal in this complex formula composed of the Executive Masters of Design in Advertising.
"Learn what it takes to be one of the greats."
Look closely and see if you can find Bogusky, Gondry and Mary Wells. There's also the Google guys, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, and ... wait a sec ... is that Herbert Krabel of Guerrilla Comm?
Fame, manifested in the subtlest of ways.

Five-time Olympic medalist Nastia Liukin invades fashion rags for BCBG Max Azria. The limber gymnast brings physical abandon and sugar-plum-fairy guilelessness to a medium dominated by sullen, overposed divas.
Just another treasure from the haute coffers of Jeremy Dante.
Visa first captured Liukin's porcelain ballerina quality in this ad for its "Go World" campaign, which aired during the Summer Olympics. Shortly after the Games, honey was deluged by spokesmodel opps. Clamoring suitors included Cover Girl, Vanilla Star and Wheaties.
The New England Aquarium's "See Turtles" campaign is an appealing exception to the no-pun rule. (Also, we like an effort that doubles as justification to take hallucinogens.)
Variants include Droplet, Water Tower and Rooftop, which will appear in magazines and newspapers.
Online banner ads -- which are also cute, if a little Clip-Arty -- include Snowman, Cocoa and Car. (Forgive us if these links break; they're hosted by Mullen.) These are slightly different from their print counterparts: in them, ordinary things take the shape of turtles over time, taking advantage of the 'net's ability to seize roving eyes. Frankly, the print stuff is better.
Work by Mullen/Wenham, MA. There's also radio material, which we didn't get to hear.
After setting up its first-ever 4G wireless broadband network in Portland, Clearwire tapped Secret Weapon Marketing to promote its merits: better internet speeds, broader coverage.
The result was a series of irreverent prints -- and "Sprinkles," a TV ad that compares wireless coverage to cupcake sprinkles. (Rivals are represented by a stingy sprinkling; meanwhile, Clearwire's coverage deluges the bakery with diabetes-inducing hail.)
"Welcome to the future," the narrator says smugly.
The industrial pollutants in the World Wildlife Federation's "Light Bulb" ad are only tired toys. But these miniatures -- small things we can easily control -- still convey the helplessness environmentalists feel when faced with oversized, eco-negligent businesses.
"Light Bulb" concludes with a male doll holding an energy-efficient light bulb. "You're doing your part," the ad assures us. "It's our job to help government & industry do theirs."
This message of gentle aggression is fast replaced by the image of a panda, an animal known to unfailingly melt hearts -- or in extreme conditions, cause brain explosions.
Jeremy Dante -- a human repository of unbearably fashionable things -- sent us more imagery from the ongoing Madonna for Marc Jacobs/Louis Vuitton campaign.
These shots are decidedly more burlesque and pushy than the last ones, which pushed the aesthetic envelope but still maintained a semblance of cool grace and timeless decadence, yada-yada.
Hear me out. Madonna rocks hard and all, but she's past the point where we're willing to see her deep-throat lollies or -- heaven forbid! -- give us a youthfully woozy crotch shot in her Diamond Dog undyroos.
Diggin' this naughty spread of her draped over the chairs, though. It's so Virgin meets the New Wave.
