This has become my favourite thread on GAF. A great mix of comedy, intrigue and just sheer beauty with some absolutely fantastic and unique ideas. Some of them, especially from Mirror's Edge, forget adverts - I've love to have them as prints/posters.
Nothing as fun as video games though. But what health care advertising lacks in excitement, it makes up for in a reliable, near-recession-proof paycheck. Still, this thread is like therapy, man. I think I should send AniHawk a dollar. :lol
Was going to originally take a typographic approach (like mik's, it seems), may attempt it later. This is kind of a weak idea. I would improve it by making the Sharpie larger and placing it next to the image. Damn school tomorrow
I've been away for the weekend, i've just come back and... WOW!
I've got a graphic idea but i still need to think about the text...
It's ironic cause ME is one of my favorite games of the year and i'm not that inspired for the ad. :/
I think sticking to games with very distinct visual styles and iconography has worked out pretty well for far. I'd like to put in a vote for something with an old-timey or fantasy feel at some point, though, for a change of pace from the slick modernism stuff.
Are my favorites (i'm not linking the full pics cause it would be a titanic post!), and this is my contibution...
i did it very quickly, i just came home and i have school tomorrow, so...
I hope you like it! ^^
