So what are we up here for?
To help you see why this poster does NOT belong in the ADAC Hall Of Fame. To help you see why this poster does NOT belong in the ADAC Hall Of Fame
So what’s wrong with it?.... Well… for starters, it wasn’t even Glaser’s idea!!!
Con Argument 1. Glaser’s “Van Gogh Estate” corresponds with Belgian artist Rene Magritte’s “This is not a pipe” painting.
Some things have been mirrored between the two pieces of work… This makes the piece UNORIGINAL…
So what else?... Con Argument 2. The message is unclear to those who don’t know art history. ? ? ?
Glaser’s message= Magritte’s message...So, how many of you know of Magritte and his work????
Most art historians have the advantage of easily deciphering Glaser’s message
CON ARGUMENT #3 FUNKY LAYOUT!!!!!!! Contrast Layout stinks Color didn’t work well with the rest of the poster
Upon this analysis, we found Glaser’s poster to… 1. Correspond strongly with work by Magritte 2. Convey an unclear message 3. Have a funky layout/composure
…and to not be suitable to include in the ADAC Poster Hall of Fame…
