Who needs copywriters? Seventeen ads.

2. Greenpeace

These ads urging people to sign an online petition to save our seas won a Gold Lion at Cannes in 2009. That's not Photoshop: the wonderful colored-pencil sculptures of underwater life are by South African artist Jennifer Maestre.

Second ad below.

6. Dills

Belgian print ads from 2007 for Dills digestive mints. That salmon Concorde is some phantastic Photoshop work. Not sure how well the campaign sells the product, but the ads are art. Meat Porsche below.

13. Scrabble

Ideal print ads from 2008 for Scrabble, via Hungary. Ideal, because there's not a word of copy and they make me want to play Scrabble. And I hate Scrabble. Second ad below.
