Inspiring Ads

They charge for your baggage and will no longer give free snacks thanks to the recent high fuel prices, but somehow they still come up with the most amazing TV commercials.

United Airlines uses different techniques and styles of illustrations accompanied by a pleasant piano to announce its services. Also light bulb and the rose are definitelly worth your time.

Kalman and the Restaurant

Probably one of the best designer-client relationship ever was between greatest Tibor Kalman -well-known for his singular creativity, his work as editor-in-chief of Colors Magazine and his way to make commercial art serve society- and Florent Morellet, owner of Restaurant Florent in New York.
While Tibor made quirky advertisements for the Restaurant, Morellet fed the designers of M&Co (Kalman’s design firm) four days a week from 1985 to 1993. Great deal!
