Interactive Sharpie e-cast Billboard
Many of us have a fascination with graffiti art, and we sometimes even look over our shoulders to make sure no one’s watching when we scratch out our initials in a freshly laid slab of cement — or carve them into a wooden desk — or even scribble profanities across the stall door in a public restroom.
The creative minds working for Sharpie, the ultimate in permanent markers, have discovered a way to satiate our desires to deface public domain. Interactive e-cast billboards have been scattered around cities, which allow people to experience the rush of creating their own graffiti. Choose some colours, write a message and Sharpie makes it possible for anyone to leave his permanent mark on the side of the bus stop or the public phone or anywhere else billboard adverting may be experienced.

Nintendo Wii: Wii'll not forget
Retro video game iconic heroes have been making a come back for some time now. From T-shirts through to shoes, we have seen the likes of Mario, Donkey Kong and dare we say their rival, Sega's Sonic The Hedgehog plastering their pixelated faces all over some funky wears.
Hot on the heels of this fad, gaming giant Nintendo have promoted their latest baby Wii in Italy with this interesting wall display created by a series of posted notes. Behind each not lies a message inviting the recipient to relive the 80's through some classic games available on Wii. The post it notes make a nice 3D representation of a 2D pixel. Cute.
Highway Mirage - Clever.
sbank in Turkey have created this billboard ad which has passers-by literally stopping in their tracks. From a distance one sees what appears to be a cop car hiding behind a billboard, which automatically makes the passer by slow down enough to read the small text on the board. "Pay your traffic tickets on time without waiting in line - isbank.com.tr". To ad insult to injury, it then becomes apparent that the cop car is a fake cut out. Advertising bastardry at its best.
If any of you remember MAD Magazines crazy fold up covers then you will love this advert. The Wonderbra could not be better demonstrated other than on a real pair of breasts. This ad features a cute draw string which brings the boobs together in a very flattering way. It's simple in its design and its interactivity is witty whilst effective.
Wonder Bra, Wonder Ad!
Some people have such creative minds, it amazes me!

easier said than done. Many companies have a budget limit, thus can't afford awesome ads like that.WeedGuru_Flow wrote:wow, there were some really cool adds in there, I wouldn't mind commercialism as much if they just stopped showing boring generic crap on television and just focused on creating ads like those in the street view.
Plus it takes a lot to come up with something awesome like that. Not many designers realize that... some designers just want the money, meet minimum client criteria, get their money, and be done with the project.
I think Margo Chase is an exception to that. I've been looking a lot of her design studio stuff, and just following up on how she works, it's amazing.
