TBWA’s latest ads for the fast-food giant feature minimalist illustrations of packaging for top sellers like the Big Mac, french fries and Chicken McNuggets—with only a few crumbs of food seen in each ad, the rest having been devoured by an unseen diner.

There’s not much else in the ads either—just the Golden Arches and the product name (and not even that for the fries), against solidly colorful backdrops. The point, once again, is that McDonald’s food is so well known and understood that it speaks for itself, even in its absence. Also, as TBWA says, it’s “so good that in the end, there is only one crumb left.” (via Adweek)

For the Red Cross, Swedish agency åkestam.holst wondered how could people give donations in airports. At the Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Göteborg Landvetter Airport, they had the ludic idea to place paying arcade games, such as Pac Man or Space Invaders, that will be used to entertain waiting people before a flight or taking back their luggages. The money will be given directly to the Red Cross. (via Fubiz)

To show how the Scotch Magic Tape by 3M magically mends tears on paper, Hamburg-based ad agency Kolle Rebbe has created a clever packaging that makes it look as though the tape is invisible. The agency placed a specially designed ultra thin mirror inside the packaging and tilted it at an angle. This formed an area for stowing the tape, creating the illusion of an empty box. The creative design snagged Kolle Rebbe a Silver Design award in the Packaging category at the 2014 CLIO Awards. (via Design Taxi)
