Where do you Stand on the New Economist Ads

I’ve written here before about The Economist advertising campaigns, which I love.

I really was not sure how they were going to top some of the fantastic and very thought provoking ideas that were the backbone of their previous campaign. Ideas like these:

I must say though, that the new Economist ads which are starting to appear in tube stations around London are pretty good. I have watched people on platforms talking about them, discussing them. Some only saw one of each pair, and were angry that the Economist was taking such a clear stand (until they saw the partner ad).

Its fascinating to see the impact these ads are having. I am sure there are more, I photographed some.

Where do you Stand?

1. Should the West Attack Iran?

2. Should Prostitution be Legal?

    Brilliant. But I can imagine what the people thought who saw the 1 ad before the second was put up. And even now, if a train happens to come on time, it will be full of people angry at the economist.

    Hi, I illustrated the Iran poster above and I’ve been looking for a picture of it on the wall, do you mind if I use your photo on my blog?
