Kara Underwood’s Post
I am absolutely in love with this ad campaign for Dove's hair care products. They've picked these well-known women cartoon characters that almost everyone will recognize, and "styled" their hair in a new and fresh way. It caught my attention because 1st: I wanted to know why Wilma or Velma were on the poster 2nd: why their hair was different on the right side (I'm so used to seeing them with the original hair style that it kind of messes with me) and 3rd: they really pop out of the white backdrop, so that helps to catch my attention. The white backdrop is part of Dove's identity; they really like to keep designs, which makes sense because they are a hygiene products company. They also keep the text fairly short and clean. It gets right to the point and states enough to draw you into the product. Because they changed the hair styles so much of these cartoon characters with distinct styles, it makes women start to think that maybe these products could actually work for them too. I think its a brilliant and fun idea; hair styling your hair is suppose to be fun, so it definitely makes sense.
