Eng “Another sad story of student work that is borrowed by a well known agency. It illustrates perfectly the risk of putting your best work online. People with low standards on ethics can pick it for their own use. I'm sure they'll say they never saw it before by the way. Let's hope that this year's Cannes Jury won't be blind.”

Fr « Encore un triste exemple de travail étudiant publié en ligne et pillé par une agence (qui n'a ni crédité ni engagé les créatifs en question). Ils vont certainement plaider l'innocence et l'ignorance sur ce coup comme toujours. En espérant que les jury Cannois ne soient pas aveuglés, comme souvent, par le fait que ce cas provienne d'une grosse agence (qui va certainement dépenser plusieurs briques pour inscrire ses travaux au festival) »

Be the judge!

    Hi, the concept of braille-bricks is not really new, is sold since 1991, it is called tack-tiles.

    Mirella, if you have access to a 3D printer, from here you can download .stl files and print, please share your experience.
