I’m a copywriter at an ad agency here in Boston. For me, it’s always great when my words come together with kick-ass art direction to create a memorable piece of work. But it’s always hard to develop something that’s totally unique and badass, something that says everything I want it to. There are just many hurdles and loops and reviews to jump through. I’m sure this is the case with any job, really, when you’re working for a large company. I’m not bitter or anything—it’s totally understandable.
But it’s why blogging is so great. Because when it comes right down to it, bloggers can pretty much get away with anything they want. I read so many blogs, and what I love most is when a post title brings out something crazy in the paired image, or vise versa. It’s the marriage of copywriting and art direction at its raw and unadulterated best.
Here are a few examples that have had me cracking up for days.
