It is hard to see what is happening with Red Bull’s page with just a photo as the images to the left are in fact a slow motion video that is transitioning across the cover. You need to visit the page to see the full effect.

    Most of the ads look good, but have to say which ads stood out the most were – Pepsi and Hugo Boss and Marvel. With Ferrari and Gucci coming in next.

    That’s an interesting statistic about the impact of digital cameras and smartphones.

    The Ferrari one stood out for me. I think having a banner as opposed to a series of smaller images makes a bigger impact. The Marvel cover photo was also impressive.

      I certainly prefer the larger photos as they are more visually striking.

    None of these!!! Being honest in my opinion, not one of them caught my eye or had any visual appeal at all! Horrible.
