Wonderful visual, solid words, still no idea who the client is.


After looking, seeing their site and being impressed, I'm impressed. A harsh 3 stars now doubled and some. Nice.

Lovely illustrations. It must be a finance company judging from the tags.

people come on you just have to take like 5 minutes to answer your own questions.. go to the web, go and explore what you don't know, go and grow :)

Disagree. I'm here to see how ads work, if they work and why. If I have to take 5 minutes to decode the ad then I'm spending 4 minutes 45 seconds too long.

Granted though, if I'm not in the target country then I'm probably not pre-loaded with local knowledge of what might be a brand with 100% recognition so, point taken.

Brand is 100% recognition. It's a bank. I saw this ad in a popular sunday newspaper magazine with nationwide circulation... it's audience would appreciate the design of this ad. With this ad I disagree about spending a while 'decoding' it... to me the design is like a rube goldberg machine on paper, makes it fun to read and I paid more attention to the copy.

thank you 'guest' for all the clarification. but i am going to go with curious on this one. if you need to explain the ad, you don't have an ad dude. well-written yes. well art-directed ... well ok. but clarity? duh no.
