ADOT Against Wars Campaign

Ad agency Ogilvy & Mather, based in Japan, made this new print campaign for ADOT. in response to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Using diptychs, you see violent objects represented on the right and peaceful means of expression on the left.


Help a girl out?

Hey guys, so I have a big favor to ask! As part of my Writing 2011 class, I have created another blog which follows the Ukraine Crisis and the current events within, Crimea, Ukraine and Russia. If you could, please follow my blog, like a few posts and maybe even a reblog? It’ll only last for about a week, I promise!

Thanks~
