Creative Showcase: Komodo Dragons, Groceries and Puns


This interesting site aims to unite local community banks with credit unions against the menace of big banks. Headlines include “FDIC sells Texas back to Spain,” and “Out of town banks lose $3.7 billion.”

1st Bank – Umm, Duh…It’s Obvious

The concept for this series of ads and billboards hopefully requires no explanation. What do you think: Is the artwork overwhelming the message without adding proportionately to the concept? Or is it a clever and creative way to reinforce the key takeaway that 1st Bank is the obvious choice? Agency: TDA Advertising & Design.
