Game Changers- The Evolution of Advertising

Game Changers, Book Review on

Creative minds amuse and amaze me all at once- I love to learn all I can from them. Since we tend to focus regularly on the interior design creatives here, and the Super Bowl is just a day away, I thought it would be appropriate to honor the creative legends of  advertising… with a look through Taschen’s new book:  Game Changers- The Evolution of Advertising.  Super Bowl commercials are definitely as important as the game, do you agree? Just sayin’….. that’s all I will be watching.. Even the day after, as much as the football is discussed and the winner is finite, that part is OVER. Meanwhile, the reviews and debates of best advertisements offer lively contemplation and laughs over the most choice commercials, remaining in our thoughts long after. With a nod to Super Bowl weekend, let’s take a look at Taschen’s new book:

Game Changers- The Evolution of Advertising

Where great ideas come to roar.  The campaigns that changed the advertising industry forever.

A celebration of “the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes” who have never stopped redefining the business of creative communications, this book marks the 60th birthday of the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. From Volkswagen’s “Think Small” to the “Nike Fuelband” to Levi’s “Laundrette” and Burger King’s “Subservient Chicken,” this book looks at the history behind some 150 pieces of work to ask how and why those who “Just Do It” did it.Edited by Cannes Lions with Peter Russell and Senta Slingerland, with anintroduction by Arianna Huffington and eyewitness accounts from the likes of Paula Green, Jeff Goodby, David Bailey, Lee Clow, Aaron Koblin, David Droga, Sir John Hegarty, and Lord Bell, this is the first definitive history of how advertising got from there to here, and where it’s going next.
