Ogilvy’s new campaign for Expedia makes great use of airport luggage tags

Love this clever little campaign for Expedia by Oglivy. Uses airport codes from luggage tags to portray different holiday themed messages. Such a simple idea but really effective.

Detroit: Now & Then Images

The plight of Detroit has been well documented. Over the past 50 years the Motor City’s population and industry have plummeted resulting in a city falling into decay. Detroiturbex is a website created to “raise awareness of the social and economic challenges the city of Detroit faces” through a series of photographs of abandoned civic institutions, parks and neighbourhoods.

In the new series Cass Tech – Now and Then brings those ghosts to the fore by superimposing old photographs taken in the deserted Lewis Cass Technical High School onto shots of their current condition. Though well worn, the collage technique fits well these eerie scenes of basketball games and dances in dilapidated gymnasiums. A moving showcase of a city’s sad decay.
