’When looking at magazines, it’s often very difficult to pick your way between ads, the articles and all the in-betweeny stuff.

’When looking at magazines, it’s often very difficult to pick your

way between ads, the articles and all the in-betweeny stuff.



’How refreshing, then, to find one set of ads which raised such an

interesting issue that they inspired some editorial in their own right.

In Woman magazine, no less, and flagged up on the front too.



’The ads were for the supermarket chain Iceland, which has been running

a campaign to publicise that its own-brand food doesn’t contain

artificial colours and flavours, such as ponceau 4R (E124 to you) and

indigo carmine (E132).



’It seems that MediaCom TMB capitalised on Iceland’s good fortune,

rushing all four executions into the issue in question. Smart work

boys.’
