Street Art - Inflatable Sculptures

I'm a fan of any form of art, but the ones that I take a particular liking too is the art in its simplistic form. The gift of art can be appealing to anyone.

Thanks to Creative Juice.

Now don't get this confused with the most beautiful thing ever filmed.

Dunkin' Donuts launched an online campaign that used a blind taste test to prove better than Starbucks. Now to follow the online campaign. A new print campaign with some clever copywriting (Click on the image to read the full text):
