33 Powerful And Creative Print Ads That’ll Make You Look Twice

Most ads out there are annoying, but given the amount of professionals working in the marketing and advertising industries, they’re bound to come up with something cool and creative sooner or later. We’ve searched the web and collected some of the most creative print ads we could find.

Some of them feature clever tongue-in-cheek jokes that make us laugh, others have clever puns that make us think, and some even make us react emotionally. The Crisis Relief ads especially excel at this last point. It’s nice of these companies to respect us by appealing to our intellect or sense of humor rather than simply trying to catch our attention with a simple low-cut neckline or flashy colors.

Most of these ads don’t just advertise the company or cause behind them, they also make an actual point. So if you don’t understand the angle at first, give it some time and think about it.

Businesses have been trying to cram things down people’s throats for about as long as they’ve existed, but the ways in which they tried to do it weren’t always so sophisticated. Here’s a post we wrote about vintage ads that would have been either banned or denounced by the public if they were published today.

Maybe if more ads looked like this, we wouldn’t hate them so much. Take a look!
