cube grenade: the escape pod

My old advertising buddy, Vinny Warren, commissioned me to draw him a ‘Cube Grenade’ for his Chicago-based ad agency, The Escape Pod.

“We are not in the advertising business, we are in the decommodification business” is a line of mine that Vinny has been borrowing for a while now. So it seemed appropriate to design something around that.

  1. I’ll bite. What’s the decommodification business?

    • vinny warren says:

      decommodification. it’s like what nike did for shoes. it’s like Frank Perdue did for chicken. sneakers became “nikes”. chicken suddenly had a premium brand where none existed before. that sort of thing.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
