Nike x Lebron James = Rise

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Since the Jordan era, Nike Basketball has maintained a great track record of great ad spots. Regardless of the player featured, they always managed to present new and meaningful words to their persona. Lebron James has taken the beating to his image over the summer and I love this new ad that lays everything out on the table. We will all see how Lebron’s super team is going to handle the pressure starting tonight with their opening game vs the Celtics. BTW, Lakers’ are going to 3-peat.

Vintage Porsche Ads

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Came across these amazing Porsche Ads from the 80’s. Lovely use of typography and image perspective which visually gives a sense of speed. The ads are fun and playful, a stark contrast to the yuppie teutonic image of porsche today. Cheeky slogans & imagery for the flashy buyers, detailed descriptive fine print for the engineering types. A nice homage to the brand since many purists consider the water cooled 993 series 911s the ultimate porsche. More after the jump…


BMW 3 Series TV Ad

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

BMW recently put out a new ad spot for their iconic 3 series. A refreshing departure from their revamped softy ‘JOY’ campaign. The ad speaks back to ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine’ as enthusiasts remember with vintage driving footage of the classics. BMW, please make more of these ads and go back to building handling machines rather than over-powered porkers.
