Eye-Catching & Clever Print Ads

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. [fblike] 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)!

  1. I love you.

    I’ve been looking for a good print designer for our print ads. This is a great source to find some of them.

  2. All graphics is very impressive, but IMHO not all is winning solution. For example the ship I associate with Titanic ))))

  3. Hey Bhanu, this is an awesome collection of print ads! I think the replay ad with the folded cardigan is really creative :)

  4. I am still laughing at some of these. the Alpika Baby Cream had me almost falling out of my chair. That is awesome creativity!!! Who would’ve thought (or dared) to use a baby’s bottom as a toaster???

  5. Absolutely love the Mint Z advert, very clever I must say. Faber-Castell ad is great as well! Excellent collection. Thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed looking through them. Incredibly inspiring!

  6. reay creative.the first tree one was the best and others like icc world cricket and fedex holiday gift were nice collection
