This is very extravegant. Also looks fake.

If this is done for real I think it's amazing. Even if they didn't do it, still a great idea.

sorry, but disagree.
the number of ppl who might see it and read that sign is minimal. perhaps if you got it on news it might get you some results, but else it's just a way to spend a ton of money to impress a couple hundred (at best) people.
also, it sure screams "photoshoped" and we should keep a clear distinction between real work, scams and ideas that never even made it anywhere.

I agree. As you suggested the documentation of the ambient will bring more publicity than the original idea.

Whether it's real or not and making a distinction... well, that's a huge issue in advertising. Does it qualify as "ran" if I put a post stamp size ad in the last page of a paper with a circulation of 300 copies?

good idea

So tired of ambient ads that two dozen people see. Would be cooler if they had some google earth tie-in or something that could at least make it accessible to a larger audience. Surely not worth the money.

It absolutely gets the idea across in one glance. Good execution doesn't have to be complex.

Target market: award juries. It will be seen by more of them than the public.

Not commenting on idea, but SURELY you can all tell its photoshopped?


Guest's picture

Unless it is explained how that window has its own light source in order to be so white, this is Photoshopped. It's not a bad pitch for an ambient design though. I believe it enlightens the general public on the problems termites can cause, because a lot of people take them for granted.
