What a Beast! (Mercedes-Benz)

Men usually don't have problems with automobiles, even if it is a beast.

Opium (YSL)

Yves Saint Laurent is a traditionalist for the effective preservation of its imperial image over other luxury brands. This particular one contains more nuances than many other YSL ads. In order to be able to observe these details one shall look deep in these two pieces and think clear to comprehend the point. Unlike the primitive Sisley advertisement, this one describes a certain orgasmic connection between drugs and sexuality. Thus, it is not sex or drugs that is being promoted, but instead it is the sensualist associations. The last but not least, since opium is not a common drug at all, YSL would not pick a model that is not a Redhead.

If you think "Yes We Can" is a convincing campaign slogan, it is because you haven't seen recep's EVET (just Yes) slogan for the modification of the constitution. Whatever the possible outcome is, most people usually accept YES more openly rather than the negative NO. Furthermore, one would question if this is only a coincidence that this YES story is actually a quite popular strategy in the advertising industry. 

VW Think Blue

Volkswagen constructs its positive image with the new project called "Think Blue". The name is pretty clear and instead of going green, they decide to go blue. In order to show some evidence of the fact that they are not just "talking", but actually acting blue, VW created its first electric bike as a sign for ecological and sustainable mobility. This animation pictures the future that we all hope to be almost completely blue.

Disclosure via Logotherapy


Symbolism originated in the revolt of certain French poets against the rigid conventions governing both technique and theme in traditional French poetry, as evidenced in the precise description of Parnassian poetry. The Symbolists wished to liberate poetry from its expository functions and its formalized oratory in order to describe instead the fleeting, immediate sensations of man's inner life and experience. They attempted to evoke the ineffable intuitions and sense impressions of man's inner life and to communicate the underlying mystery of existence through a free and highly personal use of metaphors and images that, though lacking in precise meaning, would nevertheless convey the state of the poet's mind and hint at the “dark and confused unity” of an inexpressible reality.


"Every advertisement should be thought of as a contribution to the complex symbol which is the brand image."
David Ogilvy

So Clear!

There are certain nuances in this one which make the point clearer than one could ever imagine. For instance, the piece of paper should be in a way that it still is not too far from being a reminder and at the same time it cannot be the very ideal Post-it. Yes, it should be ripped, but still perfectly square rather than a random piece of ripped paper that would be too far from its major meaning or role. The retro beige fridge adds some taste to the picture overall. The perfect balance of small, but extremely significant nuances creates the need for Post-it by reminding its advantages as being able to stick it without a tape and catching more attention for its yellowness. Great Work!

Bloody Absolut is absolutely bloody.

It does not make sense for any municipality to invest this much for one bus stop, thus it is a rather primitive expectation from the public. However, certain brands like Absolut are there for the public to make them happy with these small nuances. The brand has more potential in delivering this message about royal happiness even when you are waiting for public transportation at a bus stop.

Fashioin Junkie?

Sisley decides to be provocative or rather controversial in this ad campaign called Fashioin Junkie. However, it must be said that this is one of the cheapest strategies for a brand like Sisley. By saying cheap, it is meant that when delivering a certain message one must respect the very fundamentals of the great fashion industry and the drug culture. This ad turns both areas to black and white. Both fashion world and drug culture are more about celebration and hedonism rather than just the slavery of  fanatic addiction. It is not a problem to make associations with drug culture, yet it should be done with artistic communication rather than cheap and primitive intimation.

One of the greatest scenes from Mad Men is where the Godlike character Red exhibits the power of beauty that could be achieved with the superiority of feminine. While playing the role of the character, the red hair, the red dress and the psychology of the color red clearly helps Christina Hendricks to step closer to the secret of authoritative power accomplished by the body language of feminine. 
I salute that!
