29 Playfully Artistic Ad Campaigns

From Dramatically Artistic Hair Ads to Swirling Blender Ads

— June 27, 2013 — Marketing
While print advertisements often feature simple imagery in order to get a message across, these wonderfully artistic ad campaigns are utilizing abstract designs as a way to challenge viewers to look more closely into the design.

While artistic techniques are often associated with works of art held in galleries or museums, advertising agencies are beginning to utilize these visually striking images in their print campaigns as a way to capture and draw in new consumers. These artistic ad campaigns includes the use of serene imagery, abstract shapes and a blend of whimsically vibrant colors, creating a one-of-a-kind advertisement that viewers will surely remember.

From artistic veggie ads to deconstructed motorcycle ads, these artistic campaigns are infusing wonderfully abstract styles and designs into these otherwise ordinary print ads.
