Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 10, 2013
We love these vintage Japanese magazine ads from the 60s and 70s. The Japanese blog That's Eurobeat has been scanning the vintage pieces since 2007 and has amassed a collection of over 5,400!

French Pharmaceutical Ads from the 1930s

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 29, 2013
A brilliant collection of pharmaceutical ads from France, circa the 1930s. There are a few in here that channel a pre "Mother's Little Helper" vibe, with a tad-too-happy individual with their over the counter drugs, but we just love the classic graphic design and poster art style. 

Advertising Gone Kind of Wrong

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 03, 2012
Although this billboard has some humorous observations and commentary towards whatever the definition of “hipster” is (We say that because everyone has their own definition), sounding angry never really struck us as a successful marketing tool. Would you want to go spend your money and eat here if you were described on this billboard? Not really we are guessing. Created by Minneapolis ad agency Hunt Adkins.

"No Globes" for Climate Change Snow Globe by Dorothy

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
You may be asking yourself, why would I want a snow globe with a silo or 4 in the middle? That doesn't seem really wintery or nice to have out when grandma comes over. UK-based agency Dorothy created this No Globes snow globe to protest the building of dirty coal-fired power stations. Shake that globe, and black, disgusting dirt-filled remnants come out of the towers.

Picasso, Dali, & Van Gogh: Dissected for MASP Art School Campaign

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
In a very clever campaign by advertising agency DDP of Brazil, they have created a great visual for MASP Art School with three legendary artists dissected to show their "true" insides. Picasso, Van Gogh, and Dali (say it like Adrien Brody in Midnight in Paris) are all exposed to show their insides match the iconic styles they made into worldwide textbook material. For art school, these seem quite on point.
