Eng “The creative idea: to use postcards typical of tourist destinations and hijack the inside of the typography of the name of the city to reveal the atrocities which are committed there. Both campaigns use illustrations that parody retro vintage cards. Welcome to copycat country or greetings from the land of coincidences?”

Fr « L'idée créative : utiliser des cartes postales typiques de destinations touristiques populaires et détourner l'intérieur de la typographie du nom de la ville pour révéler les atrocités qui y seraient commises. Les deux campagnes utilisent des illustrations qui parodient des cartes vintage. Bienvenue au pays de la copie ou bons baisers de la région des coïncidences? »

    @greg a client should always ask his agency to run priority searches before running a campaign. At least when this campaign is supposed to be original and creative. But unfortunately I must admit this is rarely the case.
