OK, as sort of a “Graphic Design Inspiration” post I thought I’d show these photos of some totally amazing Advertising Billboards that really go out of their way to be eye-catching. They all have a great sense of humor and also employ some kind of optical illusion, especially the one for Coops Paint… that’s ccc-crazy! I mean, they completely painted those vehicles in the parking lot too, ha! Very cool.
Just a quick post to share this hilarious cartoon from THE NEW YORKER Magazine. They always have the best humor! Here, they make fun of the NSA while also mentioning Dan Brown. His new book, INFERNO (Doubleday), is out right now and it’s going crazy! Amazon, at the time of this post, has it listed as book #8, WOW!
