Copy cat 2010 award of the year goes to Seif El Degwi

The above is screen shoot of the “Artist” Deviant Art page caprozo911 , 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.

This is what happens when you copy and paste

Self portrait of the “Designer” wearing his crown with the GAP logo which we all know is an abbreviation of Guy And Proud.


Agency: Click International

This self promotion ad promoting Click’s creativity did not score well in terms of English copy writing in fact it is an attempt at translating word for word the Arabic copy (which is not bad at all). If agencies are not paying attention to the quality of their own ads what would their clients expect from them when it is time to DO their ads?
