  1. If I were to suggest one thing it would be to add a narrative on what you have learned, perhaps in summary, from the ads you reviewed. I was attracted to the one fad or the North Carolina Brewers Association. While it did not “say” much it certainly got my attention as 147 mugs of craft beers were placed on a table with the cups set in such a way that they outlined the geographical state of North Carolina. As you said the ads purpose “wants the NC legislature to vote in the best interest of the beer industry and the state’s economy. The benefit would allow NC to become a place where the craft beer industry would have an enhanced business friendly environment”. This is a very interesting way to suggest such an agreement.

  2. Devon,
    Great ad selections for this week! I reviewed a different version of Toyota’s RAV4’s 2017 ad. However, the concept was more or less the same. It seems like Toyota was trying to frame it as a very versatile compact SUV. Overall, I think your notes are pretty similar to my observations. As a craft beer aficionado, I certainly enjoyed the NC Brewer’s Association ad. I think ads from organizations that re not selling a product, but rather ideas or causes are always some of the most creative ads. However, I think the Brooklyn Film Festival takes the cake! It is simply, yet very effective at grabbing viewers attention. The art work also helps to focus on the details and enjoy the whole experience.
    Best regards,
