Art Directors Club: Let the Art Decide

Your own worst critic is the work.

Editor's Pick

Artist Yoshitomo Nara, as well as his art, play a key role in a gorgeous film and print ads created out of The Conquistadors Collective promoting the Art Directors Club's annual call for entries. In the spot, directed by Jordi Soler, the common saying "The work speaks for itself," comes alive as one of Nara's dog sculptures passes judgment on some of the year's best advertising work, including Ogilvy Shanghai's "Coke Hands" ad created by Jonathan Mak. Print ads feature similar scenarios with other artists' work andsome of the best recent ads, include Intel's Museum of Me, Austria Solar's Annual Report and Canal "Bear."
