Books By the Foot?

While looking for schoolbooks I stumbled upon this concept from Housing Works NYC which resells second hand books: purchase of books by ‘the foot’ for decor purposes. I’m not sure whether I love the idea from a design point of view (imagine lovely old world like books stacked up in many rows) or completely hate it from a literary point of view (is anyone going to read those nice looking books?! Or are they just meant to be completely pretentious?).

Good idea though, very novel (oho a pun!).

Advertising 101

I finished my print ad for my advertising module in school and I’m kind of really proud of it (haha) so I shall post it here. Everything was done with Photoshop and all images (besides the Capri-Sonne one) were taken off Flickr. I’m too lazy right now (it’s 5am, zzzzz) to re-find the people who took the photos but MUCH THANKS to them.

The more I look at it, the more tired of it I get. I see it like every day, every two hours (at the least). It’s OVERKILL, seriously. Advertising is kind of a pain!
