The Exception to the Rule

Comment: The rule is that posters are supposed to have limited text, kind of like a billboard. That is unless it’s a poster intended for bus kiosks and subway stations. A little extra text gives transit users something to read while they’re waiting for their ride to work or school.


Doing Good Is its Own Reward

Comment:  At first glance this might appear to be a massive editorial and proofing faux pas. Shouldn’t that be “You’ll Do Well?” Actually, no. Not if you consider good as a noun rather than an adjective. And that’s exactly what the Soldiers of the Army National Guard do: good deeds for the community, the nation, and yourself.

Army National Guard Command Respect Billboard

Comment: Billboards sometimes become a challenge because some clients want to pack as much information as humanly possible into the space allotted. And billboards are pretty big spaces. That wasn’t a problem with this one. All it took was two words to convey to our 18-24 year old target demographic that the Guard was all they needed to get the respect they so clearly deserve.
