Beyond Trailers: Memorable Video Game Advertising



The video game hype machine generally sticks to a pretty standard formula. Lots of gameplay footage spliced with CGI trailers seems to be standard operating procedure for getting the word out about new games.

Longhand 3.0 – Awards for Words


Longhand 3.0
Longhand is an advertising awards show based in India that firmly stands against the belief that “long copy is dead.” In its 3rd year, the contest features several briefs and judges from both the UK and India. As you might guess, the judging of the contest is based on the craft of the written word rather than stunning visuals.

This year’s clients are National Geographic, Concern India, and Zee Media Corporation Limited. Winning work gets paid and has the chance to run in the client’s campaign. At the very least, submitting is a chance to use an oft forgotten but incredibly important tool in the writer’s arsenal.

If you need inspiration, here’s what made the cut in 2013.
Submissions are due May 31st.

Check out their promotional posters below. You can click each image for a larger version.

After an extensive interview process, we’d like to formally welcome the newest member of the Oskoui+Oskoui team: The Breville Barista Express™.

Movie Posters Over the Years


Dante's Inferno
With the invention of motion-picture cameras, a new age of inspiration and creativity was born. Though film began in the 1890s, cinema became a large hit in the 1920s, largely to escape the harsh realities of the Great Depression (cinema was a cheap form of entertainment). It was also the time when sound was added to film, making it a lot more appealing to the mass. To market the film, posters were designed and created for the public to see.
