Believe it or not, for being such a simple, uncomplicated product, Lego has some particularly clever and thought-provoking advertisements (here and here). Already three years old, this campaign celebrating 55 years of the Lego brand is basically a series of 55 visual riddles, fittingly featuring little more than the iconic bricks. The great minds at Swiss agency Cavalcade are behind these fantastically clever designs, which, much like Legos themselves, inspire a great deal of imagination. We must admit, we’re still struggling to solve many of these, but it’s so satisfying having solved the ones we did. Answer key to the few ads featured here at the bottom of this post. No peeking, try to figure them out for yourself!

Yes, we are suckers for series, and we especially love this one. Brazilian designer/illustrator Frederico Birchal depicts famous figures from music, movies and television with just costumes. Birchal’s attention to detail really elevates this series. Awesome concept, excellent execution. Well done!

We came across this simple, well executed tribute to the Man in Black by RISD grad and Boston-based illustrator/designer Chad Gowey, and had to share. Gowey says of the piece, “I’d been dying to illustrate the concept since it came to mind during a recent project. I imagined the image like a hand painted sign behind the counter of a 50s diner or a faded sticker in the back window of a pickup truck up on cinder blocks.” Prints available here. Also be sure to check out more of Gowey’s work here… he employs his superb painting skills in much of his illustration work, we love it.
