You are the Agent of Alternative Reality
"Alternative Corporate Reality" (ACR) is a nose-thumbing tactical
media project that tricks corporations into using anti-corporate
icons in their own ad campaigns. Freelance graphic designers are
challenged to download ACR stock photography and use it in ad
campaigns for their corporate clients. This ACR stock photography
features recognizable project organizer Damian Stephens in various
mock-serious power poses. Participating designers then upload samples
of their "subverted" corporate work to the ACR site as evidence of
their bravado. More of a sly wink than a thrown brick, but every
little bit counts when you're fighting the man.
this seems like a very interesting project, but the images aren't
anti-corporate or subversive in anyway that i can tell.
simply labeling an image 'subversive' don't make it so.
i don't see how this project works to 'subvert' anything at all,
except in the minds of few designers who are in the know.
good luck to the producer though, it's always nice to get free stock anyway.
