This Is A Bullshit Free Zone

Advertising is a business plagued by bullshit. It's in agencies everyday, spoken by marketing consultants, used in meetings. At Sell! Sell! we believe that you can still do advertising without the bullshit, and waddaya know? You can. No flim-flam, no bollocks, no bullshit.

And we want to share this lovely way of working with you, dear reader. This Is A Bullshit Free Zone is the first in a series of fold-out newsprint posters. Put it up where you work to discourage bullshitters and bullshittification. In your office, in a board room, in the marketing department.

Creatives, put one up in your office, and when someone bullshits you - just silently point to this poster. Clients, put this up in your meeting room, and when your agency is trying to explain why your product only appears for 2.5 fleeting seconds at the end of an ad, just lean back in your chair and nod towards the poster. Let it change your working life.

The first batch are in the safe hands of Her Majesty's Postal Service as we speak. If you don't get one in the next couple of days, and you'd like one, just drop us an email to doubles@sellsell.co.uk

Help keep it happy and bullshit-free.

  3. Ha cheers, will do that if you let me know what the *'s stand for :-)
    The typeface is garage gothic, one of my favourites, we use it quite a bit on our own stuff.

  6. "Clients, put this up in your meeting room, and when your agency is trying to explain why your product only appears for 2.5 fleeting seconds at the end of an ad, just lean back in your chair and nod towards the poster." I'm now silently, but violently, nodding at the bullshit poster.

  22. You realize, of course, that without any hyphenation, the meaning is ambiguous?

    I mean, "A free zone for bullshit" is another possible reading...

  24. This is an excellent tool for repositioning our internal strategic communications. It will help brand and realign our discussions to follow our new approach which is to be more honest, human, curious and inclusive.

  25. Are you still posting these out to people?!?! I was wondering if I could still get one if possible - for health reasons. I'm allergic to bullshit and it's currently playing havoc with my sinuses. Many thanks

  26. Can I put this up in my agency's bathroom? Which is also occasionally used by clients. (Bull)shit free zone!

  27. I was using this as a strapline/front page for my wedding photography business, but had to tone it down a bit - http://martinphelps.photoshelter.com/image/I0000dRN37LYzlKk - advertising's not the only profession that needs a kick up the arse!
