Dear Adam,

You're not and art director. And you're not a copywriter. I hate to tell you this, but it's time to find another profession.

Your friend,
Spanky

Harsh but completely necessary.

that comment is completely uncalled for based on a single ad.

a) it's a campaign.

b) if he submitted it here, he probably thinks it's his best work.

c) click on the agency link.

Jesus, this is a fuckin bitchy site. It's funny isn't it Spanky, If you had the chance to say that to his (Adam's) face I bet you'd crawl back up inside yourself, gutless. people love to hide behind the typewriter...grow up

Wow, a bit of a flame war going on here. I'm not going to jump into that, but I do agree that this campaign doesn't create the right brand feel for a tattoo place.

overall art direction should be improved. it does not convey the right tone of voice for the brand.

I agree these aren't mind-blowing ads (in fact they are quite bad for a potentially great client) but I don't believe personal attacks serve any purpose.

Everyone deserves at least a 2nd chance.

Spanky just loves getting a bite from people here, it's really best to ignore him.

on the contrary, my comment was nothing other than professional. it concerns his profession of choice alone. and was rather politely worded, if i do say so myself. for all i know, adam is one of the finest people ever to walk the world. hell, one day he may even find the cure for aids. what he's not is an advertising creative. not even a mediocre one at best. if i were in his shoes, i'd appreciate someone telling me the truth. so i could move on to my true calling in life. like curing aids. or whatever his may be.

just do us all a favour and shut that yap of yours. You never have anything of value to say. Ever. Talk about a pretentious cunt. Just who the hell do you think you are? Give us all a break and keep your 'professional opinions' to yourself. asshole.

and maybe you are in his shoes. ever consider that? Based on your thoughtless, baseless and irrelevant comments (all the time), I would say that you should perhaps start looking for another job - because you certainly don't have anything intelligent to say about advertising. Account management perhaps? That's just my professional advice. You're welcome.

i've given your request the careful thought it deserves and have decided against it. you see, people sometimes agree with my opinions, as evinced here. and then there are douche bags like yourself who get their panties in a bunch. so my advice to you is go fuck yourself. if you don't like what i have to say, ignore it. in case you haven't noticed, i've never once remarked on a comment of yours. probably because bland, boring bullshit hardly merits a response. have a nice day.

spanky: just what is it that you do anyway? (other than leave comments on this site) you are listed as 'other' on your profile. you seem very interested in giving criticism here. where can we see some of your work?

if you really want to see my work, buy the 2008 graphis ad annual when it goes on sale.

and look for a credit that says 'spanky'??? you still didnt tell me what you do. stop hiding from behind your keyboard and let us know who you are. if you have the credibility that you say you do, you won't be afraid to put it out there. put some of your work up here and let it get ripped apart.

Hey spanky, you ask for negative feedback when you comment the way you do. You can dish it out but you certainly can't take it can you? - not a trait to be proud of.

"if you don't like what i have to say, ignore it" - you don't take your own advice do you? You want to be an asshole, then don't get all upset when people treat you like one.

"Dear Adam,

You're not and art director. And you're not a copywriter. I hate to tell you this, but it's time to find another profession.

Spanky"

You have any idea what a moron you sound like? People don't like to be patronized, especially by some faceless, brainless twit from half a world away without any credentials.

And I agree with the other people here - put your money where your huge mouth is. Show us some of your work. Either prove that you're justifiably a pretentious prick, or crawl back under that rock you came from.

you're right. I'm upset that I let you get to me. I look forward to seeing some fantastic work from you in the near future. Have a good one.
