"Happy Realisation Day"
The project requires me to take historic facts and communicate them in an illustrated manner, hence I chose Greeting Cards as my form for it is a product of the kind of marketing I am criticising.
Holidays have lost their appeal, their significance and their meaning because advertisers have weaved a story of their products along with the actual history of the holiday to sell their products.
I aim at decoding the "ugly truth" of what these holidays have actually become.
Starring: St. Valentine
Ages ago, St. Valentine was known in his town for playing cupid and performing illegal marriages, being the romantic that he is. But, reality caught up with him, he was sentenced to death on February 14th and that is why we celebrate Valentines Day, in his honor.
Now, remember this the next time your lover makes you feel horrible about not making it special enough for them by buying them enough love.
