Makes Me Happy Monday : Great Ads

I love strong, eye-catching advertising.  That’s what an ad is created for, right?…. to catch your eye?

Good advertising should strike you.  It should draw you in to look more closely.  I like advertising that makes me look closer to figure it out.  That’s what this ad does.  It makes you look twice.Augusta Mall Ad

I’ve learned through school that this ad is an example of figure/ground reversal.  The items in the ad are positioned such that they create a second image.  In this particular ad, the items are articles of clothing and they create silhouettes of women and the letter U.  The design is intriguing and interesting.

Yep. Eye-catching ads make me happy.
What about you? What makes you happy this marvelous Monday morning?
