      oh my! I have to admit, I was nervous to click on that link. Not sure I buy the one with the elephant.

        I love the first one! I'm curious as to whether it was a fortuitous stock photo or had to be staged or photomanipulated.

        They reminded me of the Philips Bodygroom razor advert "Now you can shave wherever you want". Seems there is a trend for finding clever ways to bring x-rated concept advertising into the mainstream.

        at best my spelling *and grammar* is crap and at worst it are be carp

          Eww I didn't get the first one at all. Then I read your post Frankster so I revisited - racking my brain for something to get. Now I see it....ewwww....

                  These ads are funny stuff.

                    The first one is amazing for it's ability to turn a 'conventional' and totally 'neutral' tranquil shot into something, well-- definitely NOT neutral with the mere trigger of a small two word product description.

                    Course, if it was my ad, I would have looked for a wharf with bollards at least half as wide. I think to ask the reader to make the conclusion they are asking them to make with the diameter of the ones in the shot is really, (ahem) stretching the whole believability too much.

                      Yea, that first one threw me off too for a good minute. Good ads.

                      I'm half asleep and didn't skim nearly as well as I should've, was there any mention of the ad firm behind it? ...heheh, behind.

                          I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

                          It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

                          It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...

                          Hey, guys, I'm really in the need for some inspiration. I'm looking for websites that show your profile/CV/PORTFOLIO sort of thing. like a LinkedIn page but without the social BS.

                          I mean...

                          Are those printed in CMYK? If your press is restricted to four colors, you're just not going to get realistic images without CMYK separations. And there's no sure-fire way of easily combining the colors...
