Ads of the World, a fast growing site which features advertising from... yes, that's right, all over the world, makes monthly picks for what they consider the best advertising in film (tv), print, ambient, outdoor, online and direct mail.
Their choice for the Best Print work of November 2011 is this simple but visually stunning campaign for the World Wildlife Fund by Spain's BBDO office, Contrapunto BBDO. Three spread ads with the same headline. Same message. Same visual effect. Still beautifully compelling with a well executed effect.
The headline on all three reads "Desertification destroys 6,000 species every year." By the way, since it's not a commonly used term desertification means "The process by which fertile land becomes desert, typically as a result of drought, deforestation, or inappropriate agriculture."
