nice use of illusion. however, i think (stress on the think), the viewer might get distracted by the image and skip the message. but i love it.

An ad that uses optical illusions to make a metaphor about the benefits of the brand?
I had not seen in my life!

Good layout for a bank, but agree with Hiperion's comment.. btw, this kind of illusions were used many years ago by Sony, Nivea and other brands...

Used many times before, but I still like the perfect match between headline and visual. Kind of a fresh perspective on these illusions.

i cant say this is working at all. it's giving me a bit of a headache, and making it really hard for me to focus on the message at the bottom. even as i try, i can still see the image in my peripheral vision, and it's painful. it could be my astigmatism, though...
