The above is screen shoot of the “Artist” Deviant Art page caprozo911 http://caprozo911.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured , notice that 85% of his work is either copycat, cliche’ or ghost ads!!! We have featured Seif’s “work” in the past in seperat posts so I will not duplicate the effort. Instead I will just post the links to the above examples from this blog and you can draw your own conclusions.
Here is yet another intresting e-mail sent in by Kris which I would like to share with everyone with a Talent….
Hi Louai …
“BEAUTIFUL REPRODUCTION” of the french ad … http://anorudo61.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2d7t8x
same concept … The text actually is a English translation of the French ad … Can You believe this? (how your perception changes when you drink and drive)
THE United Nation ad is the Not-So-Original ONE … found on the deviant art page of a “Creative” from Talent Ad AgencyKuwait … http://caprozo911.deviantart.com/gallery/
And the Funny comment under the ad … This ad was a “Gift for [ United Nations Road Safety Collaboration ]” …
Did i mention the “Talent” guy doesn’t know how “pirson” (PRISON) is spelled … lol …
GOOD JOB TALENT!!! You “didn’t” it again!!!
Client: “Fake” UN
“Fake” Designer: Seif El Degwi
Upon doing some more investigation into this copycat crime I dug up the original ad. So its officially Safe to communicate the fact that Seif El Degwi copied the copier of the original ad which was first published in India as per the following details. So he (Seif) copied the copied idea, the headline and the art direction!!!!!!!!!
The following ad is a creative twist on the pill ads that are giving us a headache.
