Advertising Design Showcase

May 18, 2009 in Inspiration

With CSS galleries and other common sources of web design inspiration, it’s easy to overlook the opportunities to be inspired by other types of great design. Advertisements often feature excellent design. Sometimes it’s creative, sometimes it’s funny, and sometimes it’s just a well-designed piece that may spark some ideas of your own.

    You’re spot on Steven, with the web being so saturated these days, sometimes to find something a little different from the mainstream you need to seek inspiration from other places.
    Thanks for the collection.

    Great Steven, Nice collection. When talking about advertising designs, I specially like the works of Peter Jaworowski.

    Some lovely collections there! I never see any posters like this around though (on the actual street and in shops – where posters should be!). I love all the vector style illustration ones, but they’re all excellent!

    Love every single one of them, particularly the Ray-Ban ad. Reminds me of the old Batman movies – the one where they walk on the floor & looks their climbing up the wall.

    There are some amazing pieces of work, like “Green peace” “Lost?” “VW” all with brilliant concepts, executed to a high level which is communicated to the audience clearly and effectively.

    These are some really nicely designed advertisements. Companies need to be competitive with these to sell good products, so it’s nice to see that they hire good designers.
