i think the point people are making is that it's not very original. i've seen this idea at least a dozen times for hdtv.

pratz's picture

Righto, totally agree.
But the world is just way too big to identify original ideas or to realise that our idea is original or not. And here at our little corner, the exposure to what happens elsewhere is significantly smaller. I agree that this in all probability is not an original idea, but i still think the issue here is the execution , which if well directed should bring significant results for the client, which it has, which is also why we're in advertising anyway.

And the other question is...Has any other agency from Penang, a small island where creative work is seldom recognised, appreciated or regarded, ever produced work that warrants Ivan to post it up here. Thanks Ivan, we will spur ourselves to create more "original" work. In the meantime, hope this one has entertained.

We will keep fighting the good fight.

trust me. ivan will post anything you send him. this site is 90% crap ads. that said, the world is not too big to identify original ideas. buy a subscription to archive or look through a few one shows. if you see a good idea that's been done, don't do it. if you haven't been exposed to the world of advertising, you need to be. living on a small island is no excuse. my last partner came from sarawak and she was as sharp as anyone in the industry. and she would never produce such an unoriginal idea.

When one post their work on this site or gets their work posted on this site, they should be ready for critique of all sorts, good or bad. Pratz, don't be so defensive. Yes, Penang is a small island, seldom recognized for creativity in the ad world... but that dosen't mean you should come up with ideas that aren't original. You want to fight the good fight. Do it with pride.

couldn't they maybe have done something more with the choice of location and framing? at least that might have added something to the ad.

This board is placed right by a mall. Has to ties in with the shop launch. So it is indeed the most ideal place. Plus everyone here recognizes the bridge as the longest bridge isn South East Asia which is already an icon of sorts.

simpson says..... you should add a strong line to create awareness and give an impact to the public!

meant to promote the outlet at the mall. not so much for product branding. hence the line "also available in... @ Lot LG 15, QBM"

done b4,

penang, one of the gems in malaysia, it would be nice to work there.

Activity Score 49

Ditto...the part about Penang being a gem. Working here on the hand is well, less illustrious as one thinks. Other industries maybe good, advertising is well , less rewarding

Is that in georgetown? I went there for a holiday, it was awesome. But i guess working there would be a different story.

I'm saying the background image straight-up blows. Bad color, bad POV, and for god's sake, get the trash out of the grass!

this was done first in the 1970s! It was done as a print ad that had a picture of the TV. You cut out the centre and hold up to things to see the quality of SONY colour TVs. I'm pretty sure it's in the D&AD Copywriting Book.
