Prefer the pound execution. This requires a bit of squinting, but overall good campaign.

thus's picture

Does it appeared both sides as it shown here...

Thought it would 've been one side (first side) & let viewer to turn & observe the other name of money since there shown the logo twice either side. May be could've insert some hint to viewer to turn.(but i assume you've tried to expose the message clearly, easily as our some people wont bother to spend time to an ad as much.)

By the way its a Nice Concept. You guys have done nice typography work. Well executed.

But...Guys "API APIWA PORAWAL NOKARA GAMU NEDA."
because..."ANITH KATTIYA DANNAWA COMMENTS KOHINNDA KIYALA."

Best Wishes For New Year!

Advertising for advertising sake. Does anyone think a consumer would actually get this?

Agree with BKnowlden. Wonder how many consumers (or some of us) would be able to decipher the typo.

What impresses me most about this campaign is the fact that you managed to persuade everyone in your office to comment positively on it and give it top marks.

Perhaps a few of them should have registered under a different company.

Nice work all the same.
