Tom Fishburne's Brand Camp: Poser Marketing
Tom Fishburne's varied abilities amaze me. For starters, his ability to boil down complex issues into simple cartoon answers. And two - for his willingness to share. His illustrations are literally all over the web, probably due to the degree to which they resonate with people, and for his charitable spirit.
This particular illustration points to something that is so prevalent — marketing that believes it is effective, yet isn't. It's like a marketing person with spinach stuck in their teeth who's friends are afraid to point it out or are also unaware. The audience of course notices right away, and either laughs at this or ignores it completely. He explains how prevalent this is and why here.
