Everyday we are bombarded by advertisements. We see this impressive concepts, developed by a bunch of creative individuals that gather themselves in packs named “agencies”. And as I see their work in advertising other entities product and service, I keep wondering: how do they advertise their own services?
If someone would ask you: what design agency would you recommend for this project? You would probably mention the name of an agency you had a positive experience with or an agency that you appreciated for a project. But how would an agency present itself to the world? How would they answer the famous questions: why should I work with you?
The following print ads display unique, creative and hilarious ideas of self-promotion, approached by agencies.

Jump! 15 years. Boiling hormones.
Celebrating the agency 15th anniversary, Jump! created a two-page ad in which the pages were glued together using tiny pieces of two-sided adhesive tape, to bring an even more literal and humorous effect to the image. Whenever opening the magazine, the reader would have to unstick both pages , as if finding a15-year-old boy “damaged” erotic magazine.
The ad was published in a brazilian advertising yearbook.
