Graham Mutch (words) and Jamie Lirette (pictures) are a Toronto-based creative team who toil at Cossette, the monolithic boulder of an agency, which is going through some massive restructuring at the moment to bundle it’s diversified offerings into a more dense monolithic boulder…
But I digress.
These guys have created a laugh out loud advertising blog in the guise of a cartoon strip. They use toilet humour; they’re obsessed with porn and swear words. Typical ad agency creatives, right?
Only they do it in a blog rather than in their clients’ ads.
They also sell lined notebooks, coffee cups and other crap to promote themselves.
They describe their blog thusly:
Words & Pictures is an online comic strip about the adventures of a creative team in a large advertising agency. Too stupid to create avatars that would give us plausible deniability, everything in the comic is 100% true — with the notable exception of anything that would make us look bad or get us sued.
In the trial and error world of agency blogging, these guys take you along for their learn-as-we-go ride. Whether they’re inadvertently serving up links that lead to a dozen pop-up porn windows or getting their knuckles rapped by Sally Hogshead, they are out there swinging for the pitcher.
