This guy shot into a car of black teenagers and killed one for playing their “thug music” too loud at a convenience store and is (rightfully) sentenced to life in prison. And how do they portray him? Crying, “heartbreaking final words”, “learned his punishment”.
Upside-Down Ads Reveal The Subtlety Of Depression
Singapore-based suicide prevention organisation Samaritans of Singapore recently ran a series of ads which cleverly uses ambigrams to highlight the difficulty in understanding and identifying depression. The print ads feature images showing a positive message.
However, when the ad is inverted, a sadder, more depressing message is revealed.
The advertisement’s tagline “The signs are there if you read them” is printed upside-down so that readers will know to flip the ads over.
It also reinforces the message that it is easy to miss the warning signs of depression.
