Ads on Nation's Flags

The Smartest Ever Ad Campaign To Use National Flags

It’s via Portugal. And it’s not kind to the United States.

Ad agency: FCB, Lisbon.

The campaign is for Grande Reportagem, a Portuguese news magazine.

It is what all print ad campaigns should be: simple and brilliant. It stops me, I read it, I get it — all in less than five seconds. The ads make me want to read the magazine (which, unfortunately, no longer exists; not the ads fault, that’s for sure).

Sure, the statistical representations are exaggerated, but creative license is approved here because the points made are accurate.

The ads aren’t new, but they’ve been circulating on several ad posting sites this week, and I hadn’t seen them before.
