Media Deconstructed, pt. 2

The second installment of strategy's top media plan roundup places the spotlight on the creative side. When we asked media agencies to send us their best cases, we received the most entries in this, our final category: Media as Creative Department. Read on to see how advertisers and media agencies collaborated on creative executions that stretched boundaries, invaded airspace and even bled through the pages of a magazine.

CLARIFICATION

In last month’s Media Deconstructed feature, credit for the Sprite/Quiksilver wild posting campaign was mistakenly given to Pattison and CBS Outdoor (who were involved in the more traditional OOH campaign element). In fact, Grassroots Advertising of Toronto was responsible for developing the campaign with Cossette, and for installing and maintaining the innovative postings, which incorporated steal-able clothes. Strategy regrets the error.
