"Love it. Hate it. Just don't forget it" is the slogan currently running in conjunction with the latest ad campaign for Marmite.
Shot by photographer David Sykes, the "Marmite Neglect" campaign plays upon the contradictory feelings many UK consumers have for the historic condiment, which, with yeast extract as its main ingredient, calls for a particularly acquired taste.
Shown below, David's images are the focus of the the company's latest advertising feat, shot with London ad agency adam&eveDDB and appearing in print ads across the UK.
Depicting fully-stocked cupboards with jars of Marmite tucked negligently in the background, the ads offer a comical acknowledgement of the dichotomy between those consumers who "love" the product and those who "hate it." Things are taken an even wittier step further in Marmite's t.v. commercials. Channeling real-life animal rescue programs, the television ads follow a fictional "Marmite Rescue Unit" in its search to uproot neglected jars of Marmite from negligent consumers' homes before re-housing them with loving families.
Since its release, the "Marmite Neglect" campaign has received an outpouring of praise for its clever approach to this famous schism in consumer sentiments. The campaign has been raved about on numerous blogs, and even named "Best Outdoor Ad"!
Check out the advertisements below, and for more of David's work, be sure to visit the JMI Site!
With his trip to the U.S. now over, JMI photographer David Sykes will be saying his goodbyes to the Big Apple today as he boards his plane for London.
In light of his departure, we'd like to share this stunning photo of David's: a retro period piece featuring the American airline that became one of the most prominent cultural icons of the 20th century - Pan Am.
Click on the image below to view more of David's work, and a special thank-you to all those who met with David in New York and Chicago during his visit!
Back in February, David Sykes was commissioned by Irving & co to shoot Carluccio's 2013 Easter ad campaign!

It's that time of year again!
With the holiday season upon us, there are new festivities and big family meals to be had! To prepare yourself for your holiday fun, check out photographer David Sykes' playful take on "Christmas Pudding". David's "faux food" photograph takes a seasonal staple and turns it into a fun and spirited creation - just in time for the most spirited season of all!
But don't take our word for it - the proof is in the pudding.
There are only 19 days until Christmas...and we're not the only ones counting!
Photographer David Sykes has relaunched his holiday ADVENTGRAM project, a recreation of the twenty-five day Advent Calendar - with a twist! Begun in 2011, the project combines David's playful and innovative artistic style with the ultimate social media platform for picture-sharing: Instagram. Each day in December, the photographer finds and shoots the date, and then uploads his pictures using Instagram. From now until Christmas Day, David will be sharing his photographs, and is inviting Instagram users to join along!
Click on the image below from last year's Adventgram calendar to learn more about David's project, and how you can join in on the holiday fun.
Check out David Sykes' newest ad for Milka! Shot in London with ad agency Crispin Poter + Bogusky, the ad campaign has been spotted on Billboards all over Europe.
We wonder where they'll pop up next!

All the winners images will be reproduced in a print gallery at the 2012 PDN PhotoPlus Conference + Expo, which takes place Oct. 24-27th, at the Javits Center here in NYC.
Today is the day! Set your DVR's or, even better...cancel your Friday night plans, grab some tissues and get ready for the Opening Ceremony of the Summer 2012 Olympics! It will be difficult to top the Bejing 2008 Opening Ceremony, but somehow they'll do it!
Last week we posted the Hope Solo Seiko campaign shot by Morten Smidt as well as some Olympic party ideas from Every Day with Rachael Ray shot by Lucy Schaeffer. Today we have a special treat! David Sykes shot this outtake for Bloomberg Business Week.
This was shot in the offices of Rio Tinto, the company that mines the metal for the Olympic medals! Believe it or not, those medals are the ACTUAL ones that will be given out to the athletes at the games! When we asked him what it was like, David shared that "they were extremely heavy since they are the biggest olympic medals ever made.". So crazy and exciting! We can't even imagine what it would be like to be in London right now, let alone have the opportunity to photograph the medals!
