Nice work by small Brooklyn, NY based Fogelson Lubliner, including these ingenious illustrations for the New York Times.

Really clever ad campaign for The Zimbabwean newspaper, executed by TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris in Johannesburg. They scooped up 7 awards for the campaign at the 2009 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, including the Grand Prix for Outdoor.

The campaign was designed to raise awareness regarding the plight of The Zimbabwean newspaper and consisted of various creative elements, including a billboard, all made up entirely of Zimbabwean dollar bank notes. The newspaper, the brainchild of journalists driven into exile, is committed to providing independent and fair comment on Zimbabwe to Zimbabweans, and has had a ‘luxury’ import duty of over 55% added to it by the Mugabe government, thus making it unaffordable to the average Zimbabwean citizen.

For many reasons, this is an ideal year to help save peoples jobs!
There are hundreds of magazines out there. You can find a periodical for every personality type, and since the print publishing industry is badly hurting, you will be helping creative professionals (like designers, writers and photographers) stay employed.

The more subscriptions you purchase the more you are giving back. If you want to get even more specific with your support, you can subscribe to your local monthly, such as Portland Monthly.

Besides that just think, a magazine subscription keeps you in someone’s mind for an entire year!

Here are a few of my favorite commercial weekly and monthly’s:

Concepts for all

Brainchild of one of my old teachers at UQAM, Nelu Wolfensohn, Concepts For All is a free image bank for humanitarian causes. Each semester, students from Mr. Wolfensohn’s class will be asked to make new images for the image bank. Absolutely brilliant idea.

ISO50 + Obama

Scott Hansen (aka ISO50) has been asked to produce the next Barack Obama poster. He is the 2nd artist, after Shepard Fairey, who’s been asked to participate in designing for the Obama campaign. Pretty good tactic I’d say, to stir up even more young votes.

They’re producing a limited run of 5000, at $70 per poster… nice handy sum of $350k. Look for it on the ISO50 site and at the Obama store in coming weeks.
