James Porto’s photo illustration shown above was originally featured in an Adbusters blog post titled “What is Mental Environmentalism?”. It powerfully depicts the sensory overload we humans are faced with, as well as how companies compete for our eyeballs. This would also be a great illustration for the hazards of driver distraction. Does the driver look happy?
I also love this illustration Porto did for New York Magazine, titled “MTA Sellout.” How many corporate ‘sponsors’ can you find? Were any branding opportunities missed? If you said ‘passenger foreheads’, you’re a winner.
