DDB Chicago has produced a nice campaign of illustrated posters to advertise an exhibition on Chocolate Around the World at the Chicago Field Museum

Creative director and head of art Paul Cohen worked on the campaign: Cohen had previously worked at Mother, AMV and McCann Erickson in London before joining former CHI creative director Ewan Paterson at DDB Chicago (Paterson was made chief creative officer there in May).

While in the UK, Cohen had made a name for himself as an astute commissioner of illustration, particularly for The Economist and in his own magazine, Draft.

As Cohen explains, the Chicago Field Museum is somewhat similar to the Natural History Museum in London. The exhibition examines the history and use of chocolate around the world. Cohen worked with London-based illustrator Matthew Green on the posters wich will appear in press, on posters and on the L train.

Riots and responsibility: guilt touches an icy adman’s heart

There was a cartoon in the Observer, the weekend after the August riots, that showed a procession of kids, hooded like the Nazgûls from the Lord of the Rings, carrying looted PlayStations and flat-screen TVs through a burning street. Leading them was a piper, also hooded, wearing a sandwich board saying ‘consumerism’. It stopped me […]
