Same problem with this one as the rest of the campaign. It's a lovely ad, but the key message is buried at the bottom with no sense of weight or visual urgency.

I think it's too designed. Way too much noise and direction. It needs to be stripped back considerably.

Yeah, I think you said it beautifully. I also think there's too much copy. And there's not even much copy, so in this case, not much is too much. There are like three taglines!

The copy needs to stand out and shout when it needs to! But over all a great concept! I really loved it!!!

And then GOD said...
Let there be creativity!!!
