Creative Ad – VI

This is another nice ad I noticed lately and wanted to share with you here. It nicely uses vital creative elements to get a high ad recall value. The ad presents a fresh idea supported by a big bold visual, which increases ad’s notice-ability. It has no copy but still connects with the brand and conveys the basic idea with humor. Lastly, it leaves the reader / audience with a good taste and perhaps a smile. Bingo!

Do you know the name of the ad agency who made this ad?

Road to SuccessHe provided 360 degrees information on marketing to multicultural markets based on his experience of successfully working for clients in Canada and the USA. He talked about the language of comfort as the gold standard and advised considering brand maturity level with multicultural groups. For example, a well-known brand like RONA could be a new name for new immigrants.

There seems a growing interest in the multicultural marketing and it is not just because of the recent (March 9th, 2010) Stats Canada report on Projections of the diversity in Canada. The highlights of the report are as follows: Read more of this post
