My name is Antoine and I'm French and I just wanted to contribute to your site by showing that in France, too, art directors are starting to lack creativity.

It would be interesting to know which came first. If history is any indication, the odds are good that the French poster came first. I'm just sayin...

I like to bag on Ignition and/or the French as much as anyone, but I don't think anyone can really lay claim to knocking out the center of a letter with a person or building or whatever.

Obviously, the French surrendered the concept before it could be stolen from the Polish.

Hey kids,when you pilfer a design concept, at least steal something that's good. Vertically reading type is NEVER good. Yes, we're looking at you Havoc Savages.

I don't think it's a matter of ripping off an idea. It's the fact that they are both B&W, have poster creases, the A trick. Which ever one came first. At least change it up a little. Do it on white, Don't make it look vintage.

"Do it on white." That's the kind of thinking that makes this industry great.
