Featured Website: “Ads of the World” for Research/Inspiration

Ads of the World is an active online archive of (you guessed it) the best advertising from all over the world, including print, online, film and outdoor mediums. It’s a great place to peruse cutting-edge, effective and humorous campaigns. The AT&T campaign below has been catching my eye for weeks in the Los Angeles Metro Train stations, for example, so it’s fun to learn about the designers behind these colorful, illustrative ads. The site credits monthly awards to the editors’ favorite picks and (drumroll)… they accept student designs too. Get your browse on here. Below are some of my personal favorites.
