We've seen our fair share of anti-smoking ads and PSAs, but this abstract ad by the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation drives the point home without even using written copy.
The ad simply uses a hospital bed that evokes the style and colors of a cigarette.
The message is quite clear: Smoking is a sure path to lung cancer and death.
Implications - The witty ad was created by CHI&Partners in London, UK. The photographer for this simple yet shocking advertisement is 'Stock' and the woman who designed the cigarette-looking hospital bed is Kylie McLean. The creative director, Ewan Paterson and the art director, Dave Masterman worked together along with their coworkers to create an ad that speaks volumes.
