    There’s some great examples here, I think my favourites are the Huawei, Orange and What is true love adverts.
    There’s so much detail in the Mint Toy museum, it looks like its designed to be shown a lot bigger, its the kind of thing more suited to a magazine or newspaper where you have time to stop and read what it says as there’s so much information.

    I find the OMG MTV advert very creepy, and I don’t really understand what it’s trying to portray either, maybe its related to the programme but after seeing that advert, it doesn’t make me want to find out!

    Very nice done but the readability of print ads is the most important. If you can’t read the message it doesn’t make sense. The second one for me is the best.
