30 Hilarious Print Advertisements
In today’s world of interactive web-based marketing, viral campaigns and high production television commercials, the print ad remains one very powerful and effective means for advertisers to reach their audience. The printed format, whether it is for magazines, newspapers or billboards, sets specific challenges for ad designers. An idea or message must be communicated simply and swiftly, it must be eye-catching enough to grab the viewer’s attention and convey the important information in an instant. When a print designer employs humour to carry this information, the result can be become a visual ‘one-liner’, a joke that speaks the message the ad intends. This post brings together 30 hilarious print ads that combine great imagery with cracking comedy.

Publicité Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La publicité, « action de rendre public » ou « état de ce qui est public » a pris le sens moderne d'« ensemble des moyens utilisés pour faire connaître au public un produit, une entreprise industrielle ou commerciale » vers 1830[2]. Cette date lie donc le développement de la publicité à celui de l'industrialisation et à l'essor des marchés de grande consommation[3]. La question de la publicité comparative reste aujourd'hui un sujet qui fait débat : si le concept lui-même rencontre un écho réel dans le public et les associations de consommateurs, la mise en œuvre concrète de l'idée reste controversée. La majorité des auteurs rapprochent ou assimilent la publicité à un phénomène de propagande propre aux sociétés contemporaines[8],[9],[10],[11],[12],[13],[14],[15]. Des mouvements dits « antipub », dénonçant l'envahissement publicitaire, alimentent la critique et proposent des actions variées pour « s'en protéger ». Ballon publicitaire

Light Touch projector makes any surface a touchscreen A previously little-known company from the UK called Light Blue Optics has demoed a projector at CES which allows users to interact with the light image as if it were a touchscreen. The Light Touch throws a 10-inch image at WVGA resolution at incredibly short distances thanks to the holographic projection technology involved. At the same time the infra-red touch sensitive system allows users to interact with social networks, multimedia sharing and any other applications that can use the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth support in the device to connect to the Internet. It comes with 2GB of onboard flash memory, a microSD card slot for expanding the storage and the battery life will last 2 hours.

Ugly Vegas Carpets Want You to Keep Playing | Raw File Mathematician-philosopher Alfred North Whitehead once said, “It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.” This certainly rings true with Chris Maluszynski’s Las Vegas Carpets series, whose name explains it all. The photos draw out the psychology of Las Vegas through the simple observation of carpet. Years ago, while in Las Vegas covering the World Series of Poker, Maluszynski found himself as enraptured by the drama unfolding below the tables as above them. Originally from Sweden, now based in New York, Maluszynski spent four years roaming Sin City’s kaleidoscopic corridors with his camera. “The carpets definitely play a big part in keeping the town as surreal as it is,” said Maluszynski by e-mail. That’s a theory backed up by Dave Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research, at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Maluszynski exhibited Las Vegas Carpets in April and has no intentions to return to the series. All Images @Chris Maluszynski/MOMENT.
