Zoom In… Enhance…

This project references the trope in a lot of crime/tech TV shows, where someone is able to use a computer to “zoom in and enhance” an image. It’s an old gimmick, and laughed at a lot because… well, you can’t just zoom in on a fuzzy image and have it magically get clearer.

A Better Underage Drinking Ad

I like the approach here – it’s definitely subtle, understated. The yellow on black text of “LIT” catches your eye, but not in an obnoxious way. It’s ambiguous enough to pull you in, to want to read a little more.
