The Moscow International Advertising Festival is under way this week, and the judges have named their finalists. Out of the print category, this is my favorite—for the Baraka tattoo studio in Engels, Russia. It’s emotional, it tells a story, and it’s makes me smile (NOTHING makes me smile).
It’s the best tattoo ad I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot them because too many students put them in their portfolios. Kids? You want to get hired? Put internet service ads and bank ads and cereal ads in your portfolio.
Anyway, kudos to ad agency Sky.
Second ad from the campaign below, not as good.
- Sean Spicer today said "his intention is never to lie" as White House press secretary, a pledge that came after making false claims this weekend about Trump's inauguration.
- President Trump signed an anti-abortion executive order that reinstates the so-called global gag rule, barring foreign organizations taking US money from providing abortions.
- The new Trump Hotel in Washington, DC, has lost more than $1 million and is in violation of Donald Trump's lease with the government, say Democratic lawmakers.
- The all-day breakfast boom at McDonald's is over as sales once again continued to fall for the fast food giant 🍳 📉
