Designs and visual displays are paramount when it comes to the release of a movie, book, TV series, fashion line, a new brand... It's no secret that marketing professionals are paid handsomely for their impressive and imaginative work.
However, sometimes their imagination can get a little carried away with itself! It may a deliberate ploy or a simple error of judgement, as they bombard the world with posters, slogans or adverts that can easily give a mixed or even wrong message. If it makes you smile, then it could either benefit the promoter and the design team or turn them into a laughing stock.
