What are you talking about? Have you ever been to Halifax? If the ad isn't your style, that's fine - but making these ignorant statements make you sound like a moron.

At least I don't pretend to be an art director

Despite the seemingly overwhelming opinions to the contrary, I like these!
They avoid the usual visual clichés in the category, and handle the written ones with a light witty touch.
Maybe I would have used different views of the table, napkins etc. to expand the visuals slightly, but that's all.
Looks like quite a small client, I'm assuming there was quite a small budget, (as there often is in the "real world"), and It is what it is. Job done.
btw, I like the logo, and the strapline. It all hang stogether nicely.

Thanks Chough, and you're right the client had a budget in the hundreds of dollars. I would have liked to do more with the visuals, but I think personally that the visuals have the right feeling, even if they aren't super polished - and the writing is charming.

There's never a big budget for scam work...you think this is real work for a real client? If it is, k-rocka you better watch your back...remember the clients is Italian.

Are you still talking monk? Shouldn't you be off doing some "planning" and leave the design critiques to real creatives?
