John Lewis Southampton Ships

John Lewis Southampton’s New Look print advertising campaign has won the Epica Grand Prix for Press this week. Three print ads present a horizon with stylised ships consisting of lampshades, cheeses and lipsticks. “Lampshade” promotes the new look home department. “Cheese” promotes a new look Little Waitrose. “Lipstick” promotes a new beauty department. We’ve included here the billboard and press versions. “A new look home department has arrived at John Lewis Southampton”, the title on the Lampshade ad, is a reference to the role the port of Southampton has played in trade over the centuries.
