holy shit....some students in Chicago won some awards (or at least an entry in a prestigious magazine) for the same exact idea. SAME EXACT IDEA.

some one is ripping off someone....somehow i think the students had it first?
Or it could just be coincidence.....

Everything has been already done. Everything. Nobody is ripping off anybody, I think.

Personally, I dislike the "been done before" comments as creatives working on the same briefs will often get to the same solution... for instance my old writer had this exact ad in his book from when he worked at Mojo in Brisbane about 8 years ago. Did the creatives see this? Or, in fact the students work? Don't know...

So lets give them the benefit of the doubt.

However, if they rip the idea - and then try to pass it off as their own - then its a bad thing.

Now seriously, what´s so wrong with overusing them? I mean there are thousands and thousands of print ads being published everyday all over the world and we don´t stop to think wether newspaper and magazines are overused media.

It´s so bloody tough to come up with new concepts nowadays and when finally somebody comes with something fresh and fun we are the first ones to point fingers.

What I do know is that I would be quite pleased to see something like that while waiting for my bags to arrive. It wouldn´t matter if I´d seen another client using the same midia for a different idea.

undergraduates at my school came up with the same idea, with the same problem: the only part of these baggage claims that are expanded are the four corners. when the panels are moving along the sides, they are squeezed together, and so the numbers cannot be read!'s picture

My partner Will and I did this about a year ago for our books, was just recently in CMYK Magazine #36. Not to call anybody out or anything...but I guess great minds think alike. Thanks pecan sam.

I think this idea is pretty cool. But i dont think it is beyond amazing. I was given an assignment having to do with a casino and this idea was bounced around class that night quite a bit as an ambient solution. You can say that great minds think alike, but i guess average minds think alike too.

Many a times i saw my rejected ideas used by other "creatives". And i know where are my senior art director and senior copywriter agencies and servicing which account. Protect your ideas, Choose your partner.
