“This Is Not The End Of The World”: A Pessimistic Ad Campaign

A fictional communication campaign mixing advertising codes and end-of-the-world clichés with a good dose of black humour. Ironic, offbeat and striking, this series of false posters confronts us with our certainties and forces us to honestly observe our way of living and consuming.

As warnings multiply, how can the disturbing signals sent out by scientists compete with advertising? How can we still hide the warning signs of a catastrophe, drowned out by the frenzy of consumption, the prospects of holidays in the sun or the announcements of the release of the latest smartphone?
