At the end of a workday, on July 1st, I was asked by my former-employers at Private Internet Access for a newspaper ad. A 36-hour turnaround on probably the most widely visible design I’d yet create. I was given a quote and a premise for a full-page black and white ad in, of all things, The New York Times.
I was given less than 36 hours to conceptualize, write copy, illustrate, and design an ad. The ad was completed on time and was highly regarded by digital rights enthusiasts and advocates.
