    Advertising material that was never used.

    With load shedding being the flavour of the moment, we decided to run a tribute to our electricity supply crisis. However, the publisher wouldn't run the one ad, so we had to water it down a bit.

    Below are the two concept drafts. Guess which one they wouldn't publish.

    You should get the Thanks Eskom one printed. Then just after a big blackout in an area get them into postboxes. The Post Office only charge 8c a flyer at the moment to put them in Postboxes.
    I would do it.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    I don't understand, being grateful to Eskom is perfectly acceptable imo

    Nice one Ian! Is their old logo still trademarked? Perhaps you can use that one now

    The publisher was not prepared to take that chance. I ask you, what was the worst that could happen?
