"As an amateur designer..." anonymous your work is uber professional/creative/fresh (tick as you see fit) IMHO
keep it going


Images are from Corbis.com


anyone think this might be an engineered viral campaign?


Has anyone ever met anyone of any skill level that called themselves an "amateur designer"? Now THAT's funny!

Big corporate advertising trying to look viral... but not willing/able to actually look truly bad and awkward to do it!

Corbis, next time you need to hire a professional to make something look REALLY amateur, give me a ring, it's my specialty...


it is a pretty transparent virol. the fact that a marketing employee at veer, which is owned by corbis, runs a blog entry about it kind of gives it away. nice designs though. veer has always done beautiful promos so this is nothing new.

Hero Design Studio

Looks like we were all wrong. It was in fact an "amateur", trying to land a new client.

From their own press release:

"As a newly formed design shop, General Projects launched with a self-assigned first project – to get the attention of Corbis and eventually turn that into a client relationship. This was done by launching a faux-viral campaign online with the intention of getting the Corbis name in front of as many members of their target audience as possible on a limited budget. "
