Need a job?

When you stop to look at an ad and wonder if this is for real, or, is it part of a marketing campaign? Take a look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is an interesting way to recruit a graphic designer, if the ad is for real.

So, is this clever posting for a wanted job? Or, is it a marketing campaign to lure people, like me, to the group’s website? If the latter, then this succeeds, as I found myself doing a bit of detective work. Read on:

I checked out www.50mmPhotography.ca and was directed to a Facebook page.

And, also this, on Flicker:

I am curious about their ad and wonder if this Canadian company really looks for a graphic designer.

Of course, nothing is ever new or fresh anymore. I remember, in the early 1960s, seeing huge billboard ads for Pan American Airways that read: Wanted Stewardesses. Must Be An Angel Stewardess Wanted. Must Want the World.

 

 

 

I am told that the campaign was both a way to recruit new “pretty stewardesses” (this kind of language would not be political correct today), and to promote the brand.

About the ad for a graphic designer, is it for real?

Any of my Canadian readers know?
