Pizza brand creates deliberately hard to spot ads


Pizza advertising campaign A pizza brand makes its adverts hardly noticeable – on purpose.

Daiya Foods has decided to stand out from the crowd of ‘in your face’ advertising with its unusual but clever placements.

Its new campaign uses the slogan ‘it’s easier to notice this ad than notice our pizza is dairy-free’, displayed in places where people don’t usually notice adverts, such as the top of a bus.

Some are so small that they could be easily skipped, such as tiny stickers on benches or on panels in lifts.

Have a look at the ads here and tell us if you think they’re a clever publicity stunt.

Cute vintage-style ad for new Galaxy S-pen

With the title ‘creativity at work’ and an electronic music background, the ad presents us the different functionalities that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 S-Pen can offer.

The result is a colourful collage of all the arts and crafts materials the S-Pen can emulate.

An ad that cost £10 to make


Doritos' advert A submission to Doritos’ Super Bowl advertising competition only cost £10 to make.

The ad, by freelance director James Bedford, was one of the ten shortlisted entrants.

The advert shows the producer fishing at a local river whilst devouring a packet of Doritos but he soon realizes that his prey is after his snack.

Within a few seconds, the fish grabs the packet and drags the crisps under the water.

The Brand Deck


Brand deck A designer has created a card game to help you define the essence of your brand.

Through the motto “ Simple. Honest. Work ”, Scott Thomas gives us the philosophy of the game.

The Brand Deck is a simple card game that consists of 100 adjectives, 50 on the front, and 50 contrasting terms on the back such as “conventional” vs “experimental” or “simple” vs “complex”.

Thanks to the platform Kickstarter, he has already raised $58,000 which overtakes his goal of $45,000.

He has also worked with the Cards Against Humanity’s co-creator, Max Temkin, on a different version of the deck if you donate $58 or more.
