The Irish creative duo Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy asked ad agency creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and other creative types to take their “favorite” client comments and turn them into posters.
Under the banner “SharpSuits” the group organized and exhibited the posters at a Dublin gallery, with all proceeds going to the Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Paddy acknowledges that clients are hardly alone in being occasionally intolerable. “Creatives are as bad as everyone else. Maybe worse! To photographers, directors, illustrators etc, we’re the client and we come out with this crap all the time. Last week I heard myself asking a voice-over artist to “go again, I can’t hear the smile”.
