Truth vs. Advertising: The Banana Republic Architect Ads Gawker.com

“Gawker: Do you think these ads will inspire a lot of youngsters to become architects when they grow up?

Frankie:
If I were a high schooler with architectural aspirations seeing this, it would probably be too seductive to resist. Five years in a design program, however, at a sufficiently respectable design school will bleed most of the color out of this person’s palette and leave them crushed and vulnerable enough to fully engage the profession.”

  1. As someone who creates advertisments , I would like to point out that this ad is for a retail store. They want to show that business casual can be well_casual. I think they did an amazing job. Now, if this were an Ad for an Architectual firm I would say that did horrible.

  2. very interesting, but I don’t agree with you
