Came across this banner ad while looking up the ingredients in my prescription cough syrup (made me absolutely craaazzzy btw). If drawing on your face with marker is a sign of ADHD in children then ALL kiddies between the ages of 18mo – 3yrs old must have behavioral disorders. It is only natural for children to draw on their faces, cut their hair, dismantle toys, etc… I think artist SIA does a better job at conveying the underlying meaning of facial markings and proves to me that it is perfectly acceptable for people of all ages to draw on their faces.
I was hoping to join a PMP study group but decided against it after conferencing in on the most unorganized and unprofessional call/email thread managed by a local chapter of PMP professionals. Case in point, this cringe-worthy email received by a sender who holds a MBA and PMP certification. Pink font and flowers, thank goodness comic sans font wasn’t thrown in for good measure. Save your design sense for the foyer in your house, where the appropriateness of silk flowers will be more welcoming.

Um, wtf? I got hit back to back with these iPad ads for Gain Laundry detergent and let me just outline the many shades of wrong that’s happening here:
– Cleaning products marketing towards women, stop.
– Shitacular packaging featuring rainbow swirls, sparkles, flowers, ugh…
– Associating cleaning products + dating , um… Can’t wait to “Get hooked/matched up with my eligible/dream scent”. Eligible scent?
– The smell of this campaign reeks of desperation from both advertiser and consumer. Come on folks, must be smarter than your dirty laundry to figure it out.
