Gorge Grown Farmers Market:

We lined a city block with six big carrots, then covered the town with antenna skewers for a local farmers' market. The images kind of speak for themselves.

Cool stuff guys! I'm sure the "Done" crowd is sure to follow.

If you don't get this idea, you should consider leaving the industry.

Brandon, had a look at your site. What does "i am an art director with struck in salt lake city" even mean, anyway?

Perhaps YOU should consider leaving the industry. At least until you can figure out how to string together a proper sentence that makes sense. Or at minimum have someone look over your copy before you post out there for the world to see. Being an art director is no excuse for bad copy.

Man, I hope you never make any comments about bad copywriting on this site. Maybe you should ease up on your critique of other people's work until yours is up to the task. I'd love for you to post your work here to see the comments that come back on it.

My bad, I replied to the wrong comment. I meant to reply to comAd's comment below. And Struck Creative is the agency I'm with, so the sentence makes perfect sense.

oh, the antenna again! why can't they put it on the real, the roof, one? it can't be that hard.

and, brandon, 'cool carrots' doesn't mean 'i don't get it', and even if it does, you should consider leaving people alone

The carrots idea isbetter, but the antenna is cute too. Sure to grab some attention.

The antenna is a great, easy, cheap execution but the carrot is definitely more striking. Great!

I think this is a really innovative way to market the farmer's market! I love both ideas, while I agree with cocochiller about the antenna sleeves' cheap execution, I think they work well! Kudos! :)
