ADESF:  War, 1

Description

The main goal of this campaign was to show how a single cigarette contains a huge amount of toxic substances that attack your body each time you smoke. They are a True invasion force. To illustrate such an idea we looked at the past, present and future of human conflicts and came up with these 3 ads. It all needed to look very epic so we decided to do everything in 3D, each element was individually modeled in a long process which took almost 9 months.

Print advertisement created by BBH, Brazil for ADESF, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.

Caption

More than 4,700 toxic substances against you. Stop smoking.

Good Art.
I am not so sure if you should brag about spending 9 months to produce it.
Imagine what would happen, what you could achieve, if instead of spending 9 months to "produce" it you had spent 9 months to "think" it. Wouldn´t you have a better campaign?.

I'll love to see the copy in portuguese... I find no comparison between substances and the wars inside the cigarrette, although I like the campaign...

Wow. Would this be done as a 3D render?
Looks great.

looks good, but there's no value in doing the same thing 3 times. They're so similar, I bet that once the average person (who doesn't seek out advertising like us) sees one execution, they wouldn't even notice the difference if they saw another.

I hate to say it but as nice as the visual is, I'm just not sure it would make me care to stop smoking. Maybe I'm too critical though.

They are against you, so burn them up! Up in flames! Smoker wins.

agree with daniel^ on this, too much of an exaggeration and not enough emotion to cause anybody to care. nice try. good art. kinda cool.

You may be right.
However, the ad made years ago (as mentioned in earlier post) was so interesting that it definitely stopped me from taking up smoking when I was in high school even though I had seen the ad 10 years earlier! And I wasn't thinking about advertising was back then!

I kept thinking... "eww... chemicals put in rat poison and rocket fuel..."
It was just effective.

angle and the format simply does not work. published in the vertical is even worse, with the text rotated 90 degrees. and you had a lot of time to think about that, right ?
