Fed Up with Feedback
Feedback! If you only work with machines, animals other than people, or in total seclusion you might not get it. If you work with people, you're likely to get it more than you like since it can leave an awfully bad taste in your mouth.
You're also likely to really get this poster and others exhibited by a couple of Irish "mad men," so to speak,(Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy). The pair are turning some negative client feedback into something very positive. As they explain on their Sharp Suits web page, "Ireland's creative community have gotten together to release a lot of pent up anger and sadness through the medium of the A3 poster, all in aid of [Dublin's] Temple Street Children's Hospital."
The exhibition of posters (featuring actual comments that ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and others have heard from their customers) has been dubbed a "creative catharsis." Go ahead and visit the site, maybe order a print, and purge yourself of any negative vibes that may be haunting your creative side.
