WHEN CLIENTS’ DUMBEST REQUESTS BECOME ART

Irish creative team Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy recently orchestrated a lemonade-making sort of project that turns clients’ less informed requests into art. The pair 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.

According to Treacy, all the comments you see are real. And as for client feedback on the project: “Nobody’s said anything yet. But we presume we’re fired,” says Treacy. “That’s why we kept all submissions anonymous.”

I want all of these blown up as posters, right behind my desk.
