Yes, who did it?

Nice copy, by the way.
Art direction not so good.

Nice idea, but only half thought. Why, for example, would you put a destructive tear through the samples you're supposedly promoting?


Here, let me save everyone the trouble of asking. "Do you even work in advertising?"

It won Archive student of the year although the winner's name escapes me right now. Cool line, ok AD.

Copy is nice but art direction needs more simplicity.

The idea is nice, but muffled.

I think simple executions using just those longhand words, with a tag line to tie it up, would have been perfect:

Did you submit something that didn't win and you are now throwing a hissy fit? If you're going to pass your beliefs off as fact, at least provide some evidence or thought. That goes for the other vainglorious posters.

Wow.. I didn't even know this was posted here. Thanks for the kind words, and for the constructive feedback.

This was a student ad of mine. I'll be the first to admit, the AD could have been better. I was on my own, and I'm a copywriter. Originally, I wanted to recruit a calligrapher to craft the copy by hand. But as a student, I didn't have the time or the resources. So it is what it is, for now.

"Nice idea, but only half thought. Why... would you put a destructive tear through the samples you're supposedly promoting? ... "Do you even work in advertising?"

To answer your question, Sir, I am in advertising. Thanks for asking. And the paper is torn for a reason. The first time I got my hands on a pen this nice, I reached for the first scrap of paper I could find to doodle on. A sales receipt, a post-it, a napkin. Doesn't matter. You just want to tear off a blank corner and write your name over and over again until you get it out of your system. At least, that's how I felt. So that was the thought behind the paper scrap. No need to get discourteous.

Thanks again, guys. Rock on.

"Do you even work in advertising" is his signature, not a personal attack.

Nice to hear the explanation for the torn paper, because that was my original thought, as well. :)
