Playing with typography still works

Associação Paranaense de Reabilitação

This typographic idea is done many times before for many causes and brands. And it still works if it is properly used. It is the kind of outdoor advertising which makes people wait and think.
This campaign is from the Brazilian Associação Paranaense de Reabilitação (Rehabilitation Society from Paraná). The only thing which is discussable are the color choices.

As agency Guarda (Chuva) writes:
Conflicting colors and lack of space can be an impediment to reading, but it does not compare to climb stairs or running to catch the last bus, having some kind of physical disability.

“Running to catch the last bus.
Hard to read? It’s tough when something simple becomes so hard, isn’t?
October 11th, National Disabled Person Day”

More campaign items after the break including the original Brazilian versions.

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
