  18. Astute

    Advertising and Marketing students, please in the future don’t get caught up on what is “fu(k!ng awesome” versus what actually generates sales (your job).

    Brand awareness for a fu(k!ng awesome ad fades faster than your tan in Siberia… you need to create a product experience after this exposure. Do not forget it!

    The Axe one is awful, I’m surprised that the owner of building allowed it. I don’t think objectifying actual women, supposedly students, like that is socially acceptable.

    love the paint

    I used to work in the “painted building”. The picture brought back many memories.
