Copy > Excellent

Art Direction > Subtle Brilliance [look at the relevant use of colour in the entire campaign]

Not sure what this is all about.
if its just the fact it cut through a coconut, then its pretty average.
if im missing something then sorry

an english copy ad by an austrian agency?
either this campaign is fake award-show bullshit or they should have submitted the german original.

the first one. never published anywhere. the real campaign there doing for XXXLutz is lowest-level-advertising.

thanks for clearing that up. I had been wondering how they would have separated the awfully long word "Kokosnuss" in that poster.

nothing special. seen a lot of better stuff for knifes. Especially in terms of art direction.

i like how the copy works and how the art direction guides me to create some kind of image in my mind. it's brilliant albeit it is obviously talking to an intelligent market.

Done before by KNSK (Germany) - and the confusing thing is, that it was done for the same brand (WMF is their client). Won a few awards.

Sorry, but this leaves a really bad aftertaste.

When a product's name contains XXX, a pinkie-sized knife makes absolutely no sense, in more ways than one.
