Mondo Pasta Ads: Genius

 

This is my favorite advertising campaign I have see for a long time. "Mondo Pasta So Good You can't Let Go"

The ad campaign is currently taking place in Hamburg, Germany taking advantage of the boats anchoring ropes and a simple magnetic sign.

Doom for Time and Newsweek, but not for The Economist

 
 

I know the talk about the death of print is boring most folks, but this video has some very interesting points to think about.  Its main focus is to explain why the Economist is doing so well but it hits on some strategies Newsweek and Time did that might have been counterproduct.  One putting so much effort in build a web identity and two littering their magazine in the tables of Doctor's offices.

I don't know if my feeling really align with that.  But the argument definitely has merit, and probably speaks more about poor excution and cheap mass marketing tactics.
