We have collected a gallery of interesting and beautiful examples of 'noren' that grace the entrances to traditional Izakaya establishments in Japan. If you've forgotten, an izakaya (居酒屋) is a type of informal Japanese drinking establishment that serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking and light fare.
Advertising craft doesn't get more delicate than this. Check out the crazy ice cubes TBWA\Hakuhodo created for Japan's Suntory Whisky. The agency used a CNC router chilled at -7 degrees Celsius (and inverse 3-D printing) to carve the designs from small blocks of ice. A touch of chilled Suntory whiskey polishes the surface of the ice and gives a beautiful shine to the sculpture.
