Readers have more trouble focusing on magazines’ iPad editions than publishers initially predicted, according to the latest study in a growing effort to figure out tablet computers.

我最近發現了一位非常有趣和有見地的香港廣告經理,他在蘋果日報和博客的筆名是”畢明“。多謝畢明與讀者分享以下的 YouTube短片。


Message on a fly! This one is super cool! Apparently the string holding the message to the fly is made of biodegradable material! [HT Bud]

What a slick BBC Winter Olympics ad! Very creative. [HT Bud]

This is an AXE ad so if you want political correctness, this one is NOT for you! :) [HT Bud]

A cute AmEx ad (but I think my lowly “free with cash back” VISA card has the same advantages)! [HT Bud]

Here is something from Bud’s blog, “畢明 ‧所以‧廣告 – Life is too short”

“做廣告,受薪胡思亂想;戲痴,傻+癲的,在各大報章愛恨電影;多元字作,專欄通通畢氏腦作。相信磊落、就快樂。 奉行 Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish, Work hard, Play HarDer!!! “

A great entry re “80後的廣告“, very insightful observations and comments.
