This ad for Coca-Cola is by far one of their very best, though I’m sure must be the reason they stick to family friendly polar bears now! 

Still extremely creative ad and definitely memorable. Provides a few good chuckles too!

Probably one of the best uses of the Olympics in a marketing campaign. 
Durex really gets things going with this tongue in cheek ad and subtly (ok maybe not so subtle) states what every guy knows a condom to do best. 
Funny and memorable, kudos Durex!

On Advertising

I’ve always been interested in advertising and marketing. Ever since I can remember, I’ve admired brands and how they sell their product.

Unfortunately, up til now, it’s only been something I’ve been interested in. I’ve never fully thought about this industry as a career, it’s only been something fun and sometimes cheeky for me.

Now that I’ve had some free time, and by that I mean, unemployed and out of school, I’ve started rediscovering the things I’m passionate about and the things I love. I love technology and products (that’s why I studied engineering and product design) but I realized I’m not as in love with building the technology (hence 1st startup) as I am with selling and getting others to use that technology. This to me is a far bigger challenge which limbos in product design as well. How do you get customers and how do you grow?

I find this idea fascinating and tantalizing all at the same time. So what I’m trying to say to the 2 ppl that follow this blog (lol) is that u’ll be seeing me post a lot more about brands that are making excellent marketing decisions and breaking down why I think they’re good.

Hopefully this won’t make you unfollow me haha.

This is probably one of the coolest ideas for urban planning that I’ve seen in a long time. I’m a strong believer that technology is going to impact our day to day lives and not just our social and gaming lives. Technology, and particularly big data, will move us forward and what better place to start than the most tech-accepting city in the world. 

I love living here and now I need to find out how I can be a part of these changes.

I’m all for alternative modes of transport but parking like this with your scooter makes me want to run over your shit in a hummer.
