Brutally Honest Illustrations Of American's Nation Parks By Amber Share That May Crack You Up
Marketing is a process of identifying and understanding customers' needs and wants, then informing them of products or services and persuading them to buy. Customers often make a careful consideration before deciding to buy. However, today's marketing strategies are more and more sophisticated, which seem to exaggerate every product's quality. As a result, sometimes customers have to pay a lot but end up purchasing disappointing products/ services. Tourist attractions are good examples of over-advertise.
Amber Share is an illustrator, who works on the project of drawing all 62 US National Parks. But his artwork is unlike any other poster design. He wanted to make a unique twist for these works, so he found bad reviews for every single park and illustrated them hilariously. And, the idea for his work named Subpar Parks was born. Let's scroll down and check them out:
