This Cup Noodles Ad Gone Wrong Shows The Real Struggle Graphic Designers Deal With Daily
The seemingly normal photo, although originally still a bit creepy, takes a quick turn into ultra weird when the designer decided to follow through with every instruction given by the client.
The requests continue to get weirder and weirder, spiraling into some kind of obscure Japanese art piece that could never seriously be considered as being part of any legitimate marketing plan.
“Change the hair to a more cheese kind of feeling.” says one of the possibly more priceless notes. It’s not a request that could be understood by most, but the designer definitely did his best. We can see why the client would want the “cheese hair” look over the “black ink” look. Most people want the “London” look, but dare to be different, Nissin Cup Noodles. Dare to be different.
When we think noodles, we think of a field of animals running around on their hind legs and children on what appear to be hoverboards escaping from a giant digital brain. Now, that will sell you a cup of noodles.
