Eye-Catching & Clever Print Ads

February 8th, 2011

Advertisements don’t really have a second chance to make a first impression. They should be well thought out and catchy enough to influence the viewer’s opinion. Thinking out of the box is the key here that leads the design agencies to survival. Designing print ads is more challenging than some may think since there is no direct communication with the target audience.
So the question remains: How exactly does one successfully design an ad for any company to draw enough attention and customers? All of these ads in this post manage to speak with you through a simple picture in one way or the other. They may also make you think twice and inspire you with their creativity and clever ideas of presenting particular products or ideas. Share with us your favourite(s)!
