To demonstrate where you can go in a Jeep we tinted the windows. From the outside it looked like a regular tint. From the inside it created a beautiful mountain vista.

Many people in 'first world' countries don't know what it really means to be a refugee. Therefore, they don't donate. By creating and distributing mock eviction notices to homes in up-scale neighborhoods we brought the plight of refugees closer to home and presented the issue in a way that people living in 'first world' countries could relate to. This approach allowed us to educate, raise awareness and drive donations all at the same time.

The deciding factor for choosing to create specially designed GUINNESS cans, bottles, and pint glasses was the fact that the our 'drink responsibly' message would be seen at the most relevant point of contact. Consumption.

Even if you can't quite keep up with the dance contest plot line, or take away some points for creative that's 10 miles from strategically delivering on the product's promise that it's filtered to be pure, you have to love watching this completely mental little story in all its stop motion animation glory. Cuts through normal like a knife.

Dead simple, smart idea: make the backlit outdoor ad for this tv series about energy conservation, conserve energy. It only lights up when someone walks past it.

Asian furniture is big right now. The only problem is that most of the 'Asian Furniture' that you see in stores is not necessarily Asian and definitely not antique. "We wanted to highlight the authenticity of Jalan's stock" says copywriter Neil Shapiro "So we wrote ads that spoke about their pieces with a tongue-in-cheek tone that left people knowing that Jalan's pieces are the real deal.

The World of Comedy Film Festival is a showcase of comedy films from Canadian and International filmmakers. Shorts, features, animation and documentaries are all screened - as long as their goal is to make us laugh. The Festival also provides a forum for comedy filmmaking including seminars, professional development, and an industry marketplace. These posters promoted the Festival through classic knee-slappers that virtually everyone on the planet knows - Why did the chicken cross the road, and the old 'three religiously and ethnically diverse gentlemen enter a drinking establishment....

Campaign promoting the upcoming Canadian Filmmakers Festival. Puts a Canuck spin on familiar images of Hollywood movies.

Creative Commentary
------------------------------------
The festival's target doesn't buy into the hype of typical Hollywood movies, so we took some classic films and considered how they'd play out successfully - or unsuccessfully - in Canada. We ended up with a great campaign that celebrates Canadian truisms and some classic Canadian deadpan delivery in the commercials.

Creative Commentary
------------------------------------
This 60 second spot uses stop-motion animation to showcase a wide variety of delicious items made by Dare. Cookies and crackers effortlessly rearrange themselves into whimsical shapes to define how Dare is perfect for whoever, wherever and whatever. “It’s pretty amazing that we’ve been able to create these spots entirely out of Dare-made cookies and crackers,” says Martin Beauvais, Creative Director. “The simplicity of it all is incredible and the ads will without a doubt breakthrough.”

A few words from the creatives, Lorraine Tao & Elspeth Lynn, Zig Toronto.


This spot for Vaseline was designed to be seen on the big screen in movie theatres before a show. If you can’t tell on your computer, each scene shows skin reacting to an iconic movie scene (goosebumps appear, sweat appears, hair goes up on the back of a neck). We used surround sound to try and give the audience that same experience to demonstrate the point we were making about their skin.

https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/http://bestadsontv.com/files/print/2006/Oct/tn_3644_CMH_Psychosiphobia_Elevator.jpg

Coast Mental Health is a non-profit organization in Vancouver that helps people with mental illness reintegrate into society. They help those in need find healthcare, job training and housing. Despite all the good they do, the organization does not get the financial or volunteer support that they deserve. This is because mental illness is not something most people feel comfortable even speaking about. It isn’t a popular charity. We decided to take this issue head on by challenging Joe Public to visit the Psychosiphobia website (www.psychosiphobia.com) and discover that their own irrational phobia is doing harm and that it is they that have a problem to overcome. The campaign includes TV, radio, guerilla marketing as well as the print seen here.
