“Get a world view”
About the ad
Great ad, coming to a huge empty space in the business district near you. Quite simple and very clever. I suspect it really hits some chords at the moment with the downturn. Suddenly everyone will think to be informed is a great way to stay on top in the uncertain times.
Maybe it is fantastic, bold and bright red or perhaps most half decent ideas printed this large in a busy public space will work well. I am personally not sure anymore, perhaps I am wrong on this.
