Conde Nast's Point Of Passion Ad Campaign. All 31 Spread Ads.

Point of Passion is a an ad campaign launched by magazine publishing company Condé Nast Publications. Although it debuted a few years ago, and had two flights of ads, many of them have not been seen in common publications, so I wanted to show them to you.

An art director and photographer's dream project, it features people/celebrities from all walks of life (actors, designers, wedding planners, supermodels) who capture the spirit of each of their 27 print and online magazines.

With a simple headline and a caption describing the reader shown, they initially budgeted 3.5 million for creative and 40 million for media. I do not know if that's what the effort cost in actuality.

The effort comprises 12 flights of eight-page magazine inserts targeting advertisers and agency media buyers. Conceived by San Francisco ad agency Heat (formerly Black Rocket) and photographed by Jonas Karlsson, the campaign also includes online ads, e-mails and billboards through year's end.
