AOL | banners | copy + art

AOL was one of my primary accounts, while an Associate Creative Director at at BBDO's interactive division, Atmosphere BBDO. The yellow and green AOL Search banners seen above arrived with an long-running, inherited design aesthetic, which I did my best to enliven with "Aha!" misdirect copy. Conversely, the blue AOL Safety & Security "All in One Spot" banner campaign was conceived and produced in mere days. Behold terrorized viruses, identity thieves and other online predators brought to justice by AOL's typographically convenient central letter. | NOTE: A few pieces are represented with integrity-maintaining gif simulations. High turnover developer talent, crazy timing and too-many-cooks approvals often left me dissatisfied with Flash swfs.
