Janet, this is why I love you. You have said so much of what I've been trying to bring into focus. There's a lot I want to say about the whole Motrin tizzy, but I haven't had a chance yet.
I'm wondering if this will stifle some of the creativity used by marketers. I am by no means calling commercials high art. I am simply interested in what exactly what lesson did the people behind this campaign learn? Was it one that leads less risky endeavors or will they learn that perhaps it is better to review campaigns before a full launch. Time will tell, I guess.

xarkGirl: Newspaper Design

  • XmasGiftsCover02
    I've done a lot of jobs in my 27-year newspaper career, and one thing I truly loved the challenge and creativty of graphic design. I haven't done daily page design in years, unless you count my exile on the night desk in 2008, but I wanted to share some of my favorites from the good old days. Most of these pages are from 2002-2004. I hope you get a kick out of them!
