    So I have to design an ad for some tool of a political analyst that my office is bringing to campus for a talk. :mumble:

    Is it wrong to make it really unattractive and hard to notice and read? :D

    I would say no, but you don't want to get in trouble with your boss.

    That might be pushing it. I think I am shooting for the "acceptable, but by no means my best work" level.

    Twice, I have buried a silhouette of a jumping bike in the corner of the cover photo for one of my bosses' books. :sneaky:

    Maybe a nice psychedelic design - ala some Fillmore West poster from the sixties- or at least a subliminal open end wrench to convey your original thought... :D

    BTW, I noticed you did not mention the political analyst's name or his political affliation.

    What happens it is Howard Dean, James Carville, or Bill Clinton? Or maybe it is Newt Gingrich?

    I would just play it straight. Anyone like Dick Nixon's bag of dirty tricks? How about the Swift Boating of Kerry? Do you want to be associated with that, no matter which way your politics lie?

    Just make it overly loud, big and gaudy, so people can't help but notice, but forget what the ad was trying to tell them.

    Gingrich? Rumor has it that he was the first choice but somebody thought that he wasn't appropriate for the "American Traditions and Values Lecture."

    It is somebody-or-other Kristol.
