Advertising campaigns create such a huge impact on many companies. People respond to these ads and it determines how we view their products or services after all. We can get easily turned off by an unsatisfying ad, what with our brilliant minds that can determine the flaws no matter how little. Right?
But we don’t need too much to get a message; sometimes we just need a clever hint. These print ads cut to chase, leaving us fully convinced. What do they all have in common? Minimalism, that’s what.
We all know that the geeks from McDonald’s are such masters at advertising. They showed just that in this informative ad.
I find this a bit alarming as an advertisement but it works just that way, doesn’t it? Makes you say, “Whew. Yep, it’s just Play-Doh.”
This ad is subtly informative as they are being smart asses with the info they give. Still convincing, though, right?
