Ad of the Day: LG Solardom Oven

Today we have two campaigns for the LG Solardom Oven, one from Malaysia published in 2006 and one from Brazil published in 2011.

The first campaign’s got beautiful imagery, but HORRIBLE art direction on the typeface choice and type set. The product shot’s kinda awkward as well. The second references Biblical Hell in relation to the product, which has drawn some criticism (I don’t mind it.) The typeface, product shot, and layout works much better than in the first campaign.

Both campaigns took very different directions in representing the product as well as which feature to present to the audience, one highlights the use of cooking by light, the other tells us the oven is 6 times hotter.
