21. You can’t please everyone

Here is a letter written by Banksy, a well-known British street artist, about his opinion on advertising. Via: Adverve

While I definitely don’t agree with Banksy’s message, I feel there is definitely some validity in his concern. Advertising agencies need to hold themselves accountable to some degree with what they produce and how they reach out to people. In an age where advertisers have more options than ever to interact with their customers, there must also be limitations put on that to keep the work from being obtrusive. Currently only a small amount of people are truly opposed to advertising, but the fact that there are opponents to advertising helps indicate the need for the industry’s self-awareness.
