Introducing a New Idea...

A BADvertising BBS...

Inspired by the letters and requests that we ’ve had over the years, we're adding this new section so that we can all collaborate with each other on our BADvertising endeavors and magnify our impact.

Come here to share your ideas, images, and strategies…come away with renewed inspiration, enthusiasm, and material for your next project.

  •  Perhaps you have a great idea but you need someone else to give it form.
  •  Perhaps you’ve created a powerful visual image or counter-ad, and you don’t know how to get it out into the world …
  •  Perhaps you have the technical skill, but you need some fresh ideas…
  •  Perhaps you’re working on a project and you need some creative input…
  •  Perhaps you’ve gotten funding and you're not sure how to get the most bang for your buck…

Here is the place where the idea people, the artists, the computer wizards, and the people with the projects and funding can come together to make things happen…get the ideas off of the drawing boards and out into the world where they can save some lives.

Harvest or post your great ideas and materials for creating new honest ads…ideas for billboards, t-shirts, TV commercials, tobacco ads, pictures of the tragic consequences of smoking, etc.

There’s also a Showcase for displaying the best of the resulting Honest Ads.

Note: This is intended to be a work room, of sorts. It's an experiment...a work in progress. Please let us know if it works for you. Or if you have suggestions for improvement...


Because I'm shifting my focus to doing another kind of art work, I probably won't be devloping the BADvertising website much further, but I still think that on-line collaboration is a wonderful idea, and I welcome you to use or adapt any images or inspirations from our humble beginnings.
