Simple and direct but it's old concept.

I'm sorry, but what are you looking for? A concept that refers to something never before seen in human history? If it was an image of a pink elephant on stilts walking through a martian landscape saying 'knowledge will set you free' would you think 'excellent concept'? Or would you perhaps think 'this has nothing to do whatsoever with the idea you are trying to communicate'.

I like this execution much more because the copy and the imagery work well together.

I'm all about concepts in which copy and visual work together, but a pink elephant on stilts sounds pretty awesome!

I'm gonna use a pink elephant on stilts for my next ad no matter what product or service it's for.

Hey, I've seen a pink elephant on stilts walking through a martian landscape. It was on its way to meet a purple giraffe wearing a tutu. The giraffe had nice legs. Nasa Voyager sent the pictures.

dale is correct.

izmild is a moron.

izmild is using the word "concept" incorrectly. Yes "knowlege can set you free" is an old adage. That doesn't
mean that creating an AD to communicate that idea makes the AD an old adage.

Get it? good.

Art is great. Concept works well with imagery.

It's OK. Not great, but OK.

And OK isn't what we're aiming for.
