Happy Banking Flower

my team and I have been doing some research for a new project and a coworker came across this ad. It's so ridiculous, and it totally makes me chuckle. I'm a pretty simple person.

Fake Saatchi & Saatchi Ad wins big

Way to go, guys. I mean, it's cool and all to make the ads you dream of on your own dime, but is it really all that wise to enter them into prestigious award shows? And then deny making them? Bitch, please.

The thing is, if the ad was for Abercrombie & Fitch, they’d have had a chance of pulling it off. But JC Penny? They apparently think sex is evil, so bad move people.

I suppose there is another side to all of this, though. We're all talking about it. Endlessly. So it must have worked, whatever the original intention was.

Have a look at the article if you'd like to read more.

at least people like it

welp, it's the danger with offering your artwork out for free.

a while ago i posted a free vector of a turntable on vecteezy. it became pretty popular and i'm glad about that....but! i don't think it's at all cool to download said vector, apply it to a tshirt, and sell it as your own design on a different design site (redbubble). if you're gonna do that, at least give me props.

have a look at 'my' design, which ain't so free anymore.
