Pharma advertising is a funny old game. It's business to business in the truest sense, large drug companies talking to doctors in 'subscribed to' industry press, so the public don't always get to see it. Viagra aside, loads of great creative advertising never reaches our eyes at all, so we say 'why should doctors have all the fun?'
UK social justice organisation Ctl.Alt.Shift has been stocking Christmas decorations with a conscience - ornamental hand grenades! Designed by Manchester design house Dorothy the ornaments were first launched on Suck and Amazon in 2009 but are set to make a real impact this year with the design savy. On first appearances the decorations might look like delicate baubles but on closer inspection they are highly finished chrome hand grenades. The baubles represent the Ctrl.Alt.Shift ethos to inspire change through creativity and aim to make people stop and think about the bigger picture. With only 352 days until next Christmas it's worth stocking up now.
