I’m consumed with a word cloud graphic.
A thought provoking read on the old standards of advertising measurement and how most marketers miss the point: we are all humans who want to live a better lives, not consume more products mindlessly. You become a better advertising craftsman when you never forget that fact and learn to engage your audience on a personal level. Thoughtful graphic design is a great place to start.
So simple it seems obvious. A memorable tribute.
From Rick Reilly’s article:
This whole We Hate LeBron thing reminds me of a story. A woman is in front of an apartment house that’s engulfed in flames. She’s screaming, “Help! Help! My baby’s in there!”
A man sprints up and says, “Which floor?”
"Tenth!" she screams. "In the back!" He rips off his coat and goes running in. Five minutes later, he’s back, coughing, choking, and handing the woman the baby.
She looks at the man with a frown and sniffs, “He had a hat.”
That’s life for LeBron James.
