Ad Optimum: A Look Back at the Most Insightful Ads of 2016

December 31, 2016 |

Advertising is a fickle industry. Sometimes, ads are viewed as works of art unto themselves, and cause us to laugh, cry, and experience every emotion in between. Other times, we download third party software with the explicit intent of never seeing an ad again. Some ads utilize data to inform, entertain, or even aid us, while others embody an almost stalker-like presence through their targeting. All ads, however, share one common trait: they are a mirror of our inner desires.

If an advertisement is supposed to play to a person’s base desires, doesn’t it make sense that those same ads speak to the current state of our society? This raises another question: what do we desire?

When you watch a well done, thoughtfully crafted advertisement, you’re investing your time in more than a product. You’re investing in a narrative. As 2016 has mercifully wound to a close, we take a look back on the narratives that resonated the most with our society from the past year. These selections appeared in multiple “Top X” lists throughout the year, and begin to paint the picture of how we perceive ourselves and those around us.

Cobblers, the Note 7, and Crisis Management

November 8, 2016 |

Once upon a time, a cobbler lived in a village not too far from where you are now. He was quite skilled at his craft; in fact, there was one year where he even outsold a quite renowned cobbler a few villages over. This was thanks in part to a beautiful new pair of shoes he constructed that same year, and they were truly the talk of the townsfolk. “The best in all the land!” the people sang. One evening, there was a grand ball in the biggest village, and all the fair maidens (and gentlemen too) wore these shoes. The night was simply superb until a stroke of bad luck made it so a large number of the shoes spontaneously burst into flame.
