You just made a strong argument for leaving it exactly the way it is.

I like 'em all, but I like the execution without a shape better.

Dear DCGROPPO

I agree the concept thought is similar, but execution is exceptionally clever and engaging. Might I be so bold as to suggest, that rather that continue with your abrupt, onery, unhelpful and uninspiring comments, you try being a tad more positive. I understnad that you may be feeling creatively threatened by so much outstanding work, but it's best not to show it; rather like your work really.

this is a straight rip-off of a classic ad.

i don't have the link, but we all would have seen it.

you'll find it featured in cutting-edge advertising, by jim aitchison. page 17. henderson advtg., greenville, south carolina. client - charter regional medical centre.

the headline said, "can you find the lump in this breast?"

the visual was a copy typographically designed to look like a breast. the copy ended with "the period at the end of the sentence was slightly larger than the rest."

the other executions in this series are just different body parts, but with the same thought.

overall, this is a really old idea.

i hate creative people who go far back in time to come up with 'new' ideas.

this shit stinks.

and what in the world makes you think they saw this?
Just because it was done before it doesn't mean that is a rip-off. Even when the "before" is something that only a few people have seen, from a agency that only a few people know.
