While looking through running magazines I came across the following marathon advertisements which I just love. I like the the Twin Cities Marathon ad because of the perspective it takes. Instead of seeing runners from the side or front, it's from above. Unexpected and appreciated! I also like the muted color palette they chose and this swirly pattern that pops up on all of their collateral.
The Eugene Marathon ad rocks because of all the swirly elements, hhmmm, I'm sensing a theme in what I'm attracted to today. That along with the blurred runner, gives movement to the ad. I really like the green color, it just says Oregon and "Unique Eugene." I'd love to run in this race, maybe in 2010 after I'm done with school and in the west.
