New Atheism billboards ruined by comical typeface, ugly layouts, stupid baby.


(click, via)
Two boards that just went up this month in Minnesota. Note to the organization: Please get an art director to help you in the future. Yellow? Comic Sans-like type? Whose baby is that? Your chairman's? What is it with the atheists and their shit-ugly billboards? Jesus, it's not like the theists' billboards set the bar very high.

The strategy sucks, too. They actually think they're going to talk people out of religion this way? It's just preaching to the choir. (So to speak.)

If they only used a kitten even the pope would throw away his stupid hat.

Jeez. AS IF only an art director can do the job. You reckon they should have contacted your agency?

The baby is cute. All babies are cute, but you wouldn't know that. Post pics of your own babies, if you have any.

They are imitating the pro-life billboards that use comic sans, awful colors and ugly babies that say things like: god knew me at conception.

Oh really? Is that footnote written on the back of the billboards?

I love the idea that anyone thinks they can persuade the other side on this one.

A guerrilla strategy where you actually fuck up children's heads towards your cause is really the only way to go.

The church are way ahead on this one. Atheists, if they give that much of a fuck, need to start brainwashing kids.

Ads will just piss people off.

Religious people and atheists are as bad as each other. I hope they both go to hell/cease to exist as soon as possible.

The Catholics would never use comic sans.

It's funny that whenever someone says "there is no God" they're never talking about Zeus.

Those of you who don't live in Minnesota are missing the point. As a commenter, Tim Kaiser posted: "They look that crappy because they are mimicking a series of billboards put out by an anti-abortion group. The parody isn't supposed to look too much better than that which is being parodied..."
