Havas Chicago Filled a Room With Boobs You Can Play With for #CheckYoSelf Campaign

Havas Chicago certainly knows how to stop pedestrians in their tracks with its office-window installations for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last October it set up peep-show windows, but the peepers got a bit of a shock when they looked inside. This year's effort, which launched Tuesday and runs through the end of the month, features a Plexiglass room in the lobby filled with 3-foot boob balloons—latex spheres painted to look like breasts. Brightly colored window decals invite passersby to come inside at 36 E. Grand Avenue and just have a good old time playing with them.

Cancer Survivors Who Had Double Mastectomies Star in Amazing Underwear Ads

Of all our body parts, we humans objectify breasts as the most inherently feminine, right? They serve a utilitarian purpose, sure, but they're also soft and sexy and men don't (typically) have them. But what happens when you undergo a double mastectomy to beat cancer, and then you opt—as nearly 58 percent of women do—not to have breast reconstruction surgery? Are you somehow less feminine? The answer is obviously a resounding no, and that's what a new ad campaign from gender-neutral underwear company Play Out is looking to communicate.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Logos Are Ingeniously Redesigned for Breast Cancer Awareness

Ask anyone you know how they feel about boobs, and I'm pretty sure it will be positive. Indeed, you'd have a hard time finding anyone hesitant to sing their praises. Below is a fun series of ads from DDB Singapore timed to Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. They'll hit close to home for anyone who regularly uses social media and happens to have breasts, or knows anyone who has them (and wants them to be healthy). The familiar logos have been redesigned to anatomically pay homage to breasts and remind you to perform an exam—on yourself, or someone you care about—as frequently as you check your social feeds.  The ads, for the Breast Cancer Foundation, also point to an online petition urging social media giants Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to actually change their logos temporarily for the cause. So, check out the ads below, and consider a screening so you can live longer to keep liking and faving. Via Design Taxi.
