Description: 

Pain isn’t always obvious. To show how we often miss the warning signs, we created ambigrams and printed the ads upside down in magazines. At first glance, the reader sees a positive phrase. But when the ad is inverted, the copy reveals a sentiment quite the opposite – revealing the hidden feelings of those who are lost and depressed.

Life is great. I hate myself.
The signs are there if you read them. Help us save a life before it's too late.

If concept can’t be executed, it’s a bad concept. Just forget it and start all over.
Plus: this has been done. A lot.
