The printed ad format doesn't get a lot of attention these days. The buzz tends to surround social, mobile, and digital. Print is seen as outdated and even a little boring. 

But the constraints of the printed form continue to inspire copywriters and art directors to create innovative work that surprises and delights. This was especially true for the silver and gold winners at the 2015 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Check out 15 of the best print ads of 2014 to 2015:
