The ad campaign for the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point pen shows just how fine that point really is. What at first appears to be average easels, canvases and building walls are actually matchsticks, popsicle sticks and toy castles. By using such mini materials, the ad campaign illustrates how detailed the writing and art tool can be.

Conceived and executed by Giovanni+Draftfcb, an ad agency based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point ad campaign is fun in its subtle deception and clever in its ideation. Art directed by Henrique Del Lama with creative direction by Benjamin Yung Jr. and Cassio Zanatta, the campaign was expertly and adorably illustrated by Fabio Vido and Indio San. The best print ad has to be the grafitti wrapped around the castle's tiny turret. Stats for Mini Marker Masterpiece Ads Trending: Older & Buzzing
