Bodyform Talks Straight About the Period

/Observations/, , ,

Bodyform Maxipads created this great video in response to a Facebook post that calls them out – humourously – for not accurately portraying the experience of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It’s great to see this kind of tongue-in-cheek, fun responses from a major brand; it gives the brand character and builds the brand’s believability.

Thx, Ads of the World.

DollarShaveClub.com – Shave Time, Shave Money

/Observations/, ,

This video for DollarShaveClub.com may not redefine the category’s communications (thanks to Old Spice), and it was clearly designed to go “viral”, but it is absolutely pitch-perfect. Kudos to the production team at Paulilu, I’m jealous.

Here’s a handful of advertising and design images that don’t quite merit a full write-up, but are clever enough to be noted here.
