A Creative Review: The Original Hipster
Welcome back to A Creative Review with James Cooper. Today Coop is befuddled by a new campaign from the Catholic Diocese.
Sometimes you see something and you say to yourself ‘I don’t get that’. Other times you see something and you say, ‘I see what they were trying to do here, but it missed the mark by a little bit’ - that’s curse of being a Creative Director. You never switch off. And then there are times when you just completely have no idea what’s going on. Case in point - The Original Hipster.
A. What? B. Hold on, what? C. Oh, I think I get it…wait….no I don’t.

I literally have no idea what’s going on here. And that’s not because I’m English, and therefore am a heathen, or that I’m one of these people that is a hipster but furiously denies it. For the record, I think I’m a semi-hipster. ( I don’t have any tattoos, wear skinny jeans, or ride a fixie - but I do live in Brooklyn and do artsy fartsy stuff every now and then).
Of course, it could be that this poster is so random that it just makes you stop and think about its true meaning. The true meaning of the poster - and of life. And if that is the case, then it’s a work of divine inspiration.
