Morten Bengtsson for Alis Skate gear
When photographer Morten Bengtsson was asked to shoot more promotional images for Alis Skate Gear, a Danish skateboard company, he came up with an ingenious concept: to spell out Alis with skate ramps and other obstacles, creating a successful ad without any type.
The ad has since been used as posters for skateshops and other retailers around the world, making a splash for its visual power and inventiveness.
