Not clear to me.

It appears to be a literacy campaign. Those who can't read see Hieroglyphs instead of actual words. So this would be seen through the eyes of an illiterate? Cute, but a little forced.

Nice. Like it.

It's a rebus. People are talking with drawings. They don't know how to write.

It's not tricky, the text is a classic french puzzle game where each drawing represents a part of a word. When you know all of them you get a sentence which says exactly what the translated copy does.

Ex: sie-ile-nez-pas-fa-cile-.. etc etc.... (S'il n'est pas facile )

For french speakers this is relevant :P

from an art direction standpoint, it doesn't make sense to print the logo and other type on the notebook page. either hand draw/write them. or set them in the layout.

You obviously have never seen a notebook with anything printed in the margins in your life.

Stick to writing birthday cards dipsh*t.

Doin' it for the points

no, i have not seen notebooks with shit printed on them, running over the lines no less. probably because they exist no more in this world than your intelligence does. stick to making an ass out of yourself on here. it's obviously the only thing you're good at.

I've seen all sorts of stuff with both words and images printed on them. Including notebooks.

There's a good idea in here...
with some clunky copy, confusing it.
Looks like my doodle pad during a brief.

Yeah, I thought this was gonna be good from the thumbnail, but it's kinda half-baked.

Couple more hours consolidating/simplifying the images and copy might have helped.

Ok. I get the idea, but the big question is does the rebus mean anything in French? Because if it does, then this advert is really engaging. If not, it was a waste of a great opportunity.

the english text below the ad is the translation of the solved rebus.
get it?
