Advertising Age

Brief:
Advertising Age has announced their third annual “give us your artwork, win a trip to Cannes” competition, open to budding creative types under the age of 30.

According to Ad Age there are three things the cover must do:

  1. Convey the global theme in some way.
  2. Be excellent.
  3. Be original work.
Concept:
Today the world is a much smaller place. Brands now hop from one country to another. The cover reflects just that. A brand now easily melts into an away-country and makes it seem like it always belonged there.
There was a fair amount of similarity in the symbols hidden in flags and logos of various brands.
Client:

Advertising Age

 

My Role:
I worked solely on this project, right from the idea to the art work.
