Adbusters Speaks at Madison

  • Adbusters Speaks at Madison
    The Madison IMC has audio and an article from a talk given by the creative director and art director of Adbusters magazine, the “journal of the mental environment.” The talk was geared towards artists and designers, which is a group that Adbusters has been actively courting to join in their fight against the encroachment of corporate culture.

    I’ve always enjoyed Adbusters, and been glad to see the overall quality of their articles/text improve along side the art and design, which have always been excellent. According to the talk, the magazine is moving away from their spoof ads because they’ve been losing their effect as corporate advertisers have adopted the self-aware ironic technique of spoofing themselves. Design is definitely a moving target.
