Quicken Loan - app

Life translator

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could have a sort of translator for all those situations in which it is quite difficult to understand specific jargon or simple subtexts in a discussion?

Women have thick skin

In 4 days it will be International Women’s Day. An occasion to remember that equality and diversity aren’t antonyms and that human kind needs, desperately, both, along with politeness, respect for everyone and openness of mind. Last year I discovered the powerful and poetical campaign of FCB Amsterdam dedicated to women's empowerment and I’ve kept it aside for today.

To wish you a playful Christmas, full of joy and love, it’s my pleasure to use one of the advertising campaigns created by Scrabble, capable of fully expressing how words are fundamental to communicate and share, how they should be chosen carefully to build up the right atmosphere, how words can show us the beauty of a change of perspective.

Amazon - advertising campaign

Whatever you need, Amazon

/
In Spring and Autumn I usually feel that the house is in need of reorganisation. It should be because I have to swap clothes and shoes in order to get ready for the winter season, so everything seems to be in the wrong place. And there is always something missing: a box, a bulb, a certain tool... But now, fortunately, we have Amazon which, via one of their latest advertising campaigns, promises to provide “Everything you need from A to Z”!

Have a good pic or another holiday

/
Transavia have had a very powerful idea, play with the importance of having great pictures of every holiday.

This is the right thing to do, I promise! 🙂

Have a look at their commercial if you don’t believe me 😉
