Nice work

Cadbury’s Creme Egg ad, agency: Publicis London, director: Chris Cairns, production company: Partizan
Here’s a bumper Easter-style crop of great new advertising work that we’ve been sent at Creative Review recently, starting with a new Creme Egg spot from Chris Cairns at Partizan for Publicis London. The spot acts as a finale for Cairns’ recent series of ads for the super-sweet chocolate snack, which saw the eggs dramatically strip themselves of their foil before gleefully committing suicide in a variety of inventive ways. In this one, we find a crowd of eggs participating in a cult-like mass goo-icide, to hilarious effect.

Sounds of City, adidas film featuring Theo Parrish, agency: 180 Amsterdam, creatives: Samuel Coleman, Dario Nucci, director: James Brown, production company: Stink London

Following its recent ad campaign focusing on adidas founder Adi Dassler, 180 Amsterdam has created a series of new films based on the theme ‘originals’. The films follow a documentary format and show people that adidas feel are representative of the brand. The spot featuring US DJ and producer Theo Parrish is shown above.

180 also worked with photographers Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin for the print campaign, which includes the image shown above.


Nomis ad, agency: Johannes Leonardo, New York, director: Woof Wan-Bau, production company: Nexus

Director Woof Wan-Bau is behind this rather bizarre ad for Nomis sports shoes, which features a reworking of Dem Bones as a soundtrack.


Skittles commercial, agency: TBWAChiatDay, New York, creatives: Craig Allen, Eric Kallman, director: Tom Kuntz, production company: MJZ

This latest spot for Skittles, from TBWAChiatDay in New York, continues the surreal flavour of the brand’s recent ads. This one is based on the unlikely theme ‘piñata man’.


Sony PlayStation, agency and production company: Love, London, director: Terry Hall

This new spot for Sony PlayStation, directed by Terry Hall at Love, is beautifully done though its use of a handmade drawing style feels very reminiscent of ads for Orange. Is it just us, or is it time for advertisers to find something to replace the cutesy, child-like aesthetic that seems to have long overstayed its welcome in adland?

Banana poster, designed by Ollie and Janson, Here’s What You Could Have Won

Finally, to help you get back into shape after the Easter chocfest, designers Ollie and Janson, of the newly formed design company Here’s What You Could Have Won, have created a series of 5-a-day fruit posters, to encourage us to eat our recommended daily portions of fruit and veg. The posters depict pieces of fruit (banana poster shown above), with spaces left for users to place the stickers from the fruit and count up what they have consumed. Yum!

Tipping “Pot”

New from AKQA and director Dom Bridges is this excellent spoof of the most expensive ad ever created – Guinness’ Tipping Point. In the remake, lighters, fags, phones, cones, wheelie bins and fridges all contribute to the domino rally, resulting in, no, not a pint of the black stuff, but a warming Pot Noodle. While the action has moved from rural Argentina to two housing estates in Kilburn and Gospel Oak, north London, the self-satisfaction (and no doubt, budget) of the original has also been well and truly left behind. And yes, as with all the cast, the dialogue at the end is that of a “real” person, not an actor. Oh dear Matthew…

More Obama Posters

Pro-Obama poster by Sam Flores
CR blog readers may recall we posted up two posters designed by Shephard Fairey of Obey in support of Barrack Obama earlier this year. Well, more of Barack’s graphically-able supporters are rallying to the cause – thanks to a collaboration between pro-Obama volunteer group, The 008, and San Francisco store, Upper Playground…

The Mighty…errr…Puffs?

Spotted this ad on the telly-box last night. The Sugar Puffs Honey Monster is back and stars in a new ad (created by agency Bray Leino) – in which he is seen making up a whacky rhyme (about eating Sugar Puffs) with some actor who seems to be in every other TV ad at the moment…

The Design Conference That Is Helping House The Poor

From this to this: Design Indaba’s 10×10 project will move 100 township families out of shacks (pic: Yasser Booley) and into well-designed houses like this
Design Indaba, the Cape Town-based creative conference, has brought together ten of the world’s top architects and designers to help tackle South Africa’s housing crisis. The likes of David Adjaye, Thomas Heatherwick, Tom Dixon and Shigeru Ban have each worked with a local partner to design a street of ten homes to be built in the Mitchell’s Plain township. CR was there to see the first house going up
