You might be asking, how hard is it to sell cupcakes? Well, in 2012 cupcake shops were popping up on every Chicago street corner. To make Molly’s Cupcakes stand out, I created three ads that focused on the unique atmosphere Molly's offered, in addition to promoting their delicious cupcakes. In the first full page ad, I wanted to highlight not the cupcake itself but the indulgence a customer feels while enjoying the treat: instead of taking a coffee break, take a cupcake break! The second ad connects with Molly's whimsical interior, which includes cereal boxes from the 80's, classic toys, and board games that incite childhood nostalgia. For the third ad, I designed a mock movie poster evoking the style of B-horror movies that warned of cupcakes too delicious for this world.
