Confident copy that strides through its sentences, *fantastic* work. This whole piece is beautifully put together, with font changes in pace with the subject shifts, nicely packaged in a 'docutisement' style under a headline that wouldn't look out of place on the cover of the Economist- but is entirely relevant to the piece. Love all of it.

Visual isn't enticing enough to read that much copy.

What is interesting is behind the scenes the NZ Govt is undergoing a massive alcohol reform which is looking at various ways to limit alcohol consumption in NZ. Is this DB's subtle way of telling the govt to stay out or face losing the election?

smart campaign. good copy. Truth well told.

Jack Mancer - when he said he was going to collect pencils, they thought he meant One show awards. He didn't.

I hate to say that but this is one of the worst Art Direction I've seen lately. I know what they tried to do but it looks miserable overall.

Love the line "as tolerable as a tofu burger"
Great copy. Nice work.

Have to agree. The copy is tight, and urges me to keep reading. Favorite line: "As luck would have it, Morton had recently built something much larger than resentment..." Love it.
