IKEA \ No Space vs. No Taste

Great translation to the copy, it is a quick read, but the art is so bad.

IKEA is usually a bit more stylish than this.

What Were They Thinking \ McDonald’s McCafé


Is it just me or is this unappetizing? Transforming a meat burger to a macaroon might have seemed like a good idea. Macaroon, McDonalds, having a pastry with your coffee. I get it. What does it leave the customer with? the thought of eating a meat cookie and not even having coffee with it to wash the taste.

Instru Optiikka Oy \ Buy eye-glasses before it is too late


This only works for me visually, the concept seems off. The artwork shows progression not regression. And why would one avoid progression by wearing glasses as they are suggesting. Also it was unnecessary to imply sharpness again with the logo at the bottom right corner. I do enjoy the pieces of artwork they chose to show the transformation and I also enjoy the way they are presented. (especially the simplicity and the frames).
