Mobile advertising at a big Canadian media company. Walking a tightrope between free will + servitude to an ever blinking notification light. Opinions mine.
Yes, I understand the avatar image is not of a blinking light. It is a notification or invitation though, I feel. It’s a reminder of how conventions can be easily upended (a notification). It causes the observant to pause and consider it (an invitation). It was taken in Florence, Italy.
I believe that proper invitations and notifications are the beating heart of good advertising. They set expectations and deliver just the right amount of information.
Appreciator of subtle details and the art of looking sideways. Fan of good tunes, good taste(s), the hilariously distasteful and finding the right speed of life. Nearly impossible to offend.
