It is things like this that make me want to go into marketing/advertising. The I realize I wouldn't ever think of something like this in a million years. :(

You could learn?

I want to maybe go into advertising too as a designer. Just join a firm's marketing group and start as a newbie. That's what I might do. Test the waters. :)

Bluetooth, do you know what German cities have these ads?

Can creativity be taught?
I also want to be everything else under the sun, that is just the way I am.

IMO, creativity cannot be taught, specifically in adulthood. You can teach methods, standards, etc., but not creativity.

Yes, to a certain extent. Some people just have an eye for it, but some don't. You don't realize if you do or not unless you try.

You can't unleash creativity unless you try. And banging heads with other creative people helps. Besides, my suggestion was to join the bottom of the chain to experiment and figure it out. If it doesn't work, try another path. :cool:

It takes a creative idea to attract the attention of consumers and get them to buy into your service or product. Unless your advertising contains a creative idea, it will pass like a ship in the night. I doubt if more than one campaign in 100 contains a creative or innovative idea as good as the one posted above.

creativity can't be taught, and can't be sell. It's something you are born with, the capability of seeing further than the common human, the capability of understanding the things around you, and use it in your favor.

Going in a Communication Design course in the university, helps a lot understanding that.

in fact it is a really good job those advertising, the concept used in it, is simply superb!
