    I like that it's a simple, straightforward page that just links to their work.

    However, the photos of them on the site seem very silly and pretentious, like self-serious model shots. This stands in contrast to the nature of their work which is very light hearted and playful.

    Take my opinions with a huge grain of salt, I've never understood why designers, or any other worker, puts pictures of themselves on their site. I've never felt like there should be any connection drawn between what the worker looks like and their work.

    I don't understand, is deodorant that's targeted towards men offensive then? Or is it ok because there is plenty of deodorant targeted towards many different types of people?

    Can you not market to dominant groups anymore? Is it not ok to make a product that is targeting a dominant group?

    All that said, this is clearly satire, and if you check the guy's twitter feed you are all getting trolled hard.

    Yeah I have absolutely no idea who the target audience is for this. €140 for 3 copies of a plain text poster is absurd.

    I think this is extremely thoughtful and compelling. This is a very complex feature, and the article clearly shows how thoroughly they explored it.

    I'm very impressed, personally. This is how designers should explore product directions for companies they don't work for as design exercises. I would totally use this feature.
