29 Clever Illustrations That Show The Differences Between Copywriters And Art Directors

In the late 1950s, advertising legend Bill Bernbach came up with the idea of pairing art directors and copywriters into teams.

They may be working towards a common goal, but as a creative species, copywriters and art directors are not all that similar. Their differences are best highlighted on a Facebook page titled ‘CW Versus AD’ where Caio Pena (art director), Henrique Parada (art director) and Letícia Hanower (copywriter) share their cool, quirky illustrations on this subject.

Artist Combined Vintage Photographs With Everyday Objects To Create Funny And Bizarre Portraits

Antiheroes is an Instagram photographic project by Spanish artist Susana Blasco that combines vintage photographs with everyday objects to create funny and bizarre portraits. The project was born by accident when Blasco was snacking on some nuts while making a collage out of antique photographs. One fell from her hand and onto the decades-old print, transforming the anonymous subject into a bizarre character, ripped from the pages of a whimsical storybook. The beauty of Blasco’s village of mutants lies in the fact that she never has to physically tear or cut the original prints as is usual in similar collages; she simply sets some object or another onto the surface of the sepia artifacts.

Rare Photos Capture Native Americans In Early 1900s

Early portrait photographs of Native Americans, similar to those presented below, reflect a widespread public interest in Indian life during the 1900s. In the mid-nineteenth century, the popular ‘carte de visite’ photograph introduced the faces of prominent public figures into homes across America. Easily mass-produced, uniformly sized, and cheaper to purchase than early cased photographs, these portraits were collected, in part, as a record of current political and social events and of the people who drove them. These striking images of Native Americans depict the changing ways in which photographers portrayed native subjects during the latter half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. These images are attempts by photographers to document what they saw as the fading of Native American cultures and traditions, to illustrate periods of conflict between the U.S. government and the tribes, and, by the twentieth century, to evoke political sympathy for the cause of the “vanishing race.” Continue »
