Now that’s what I call micro-targeting
October 23, 2009
At long last, an execution for that most underserved of target segments – Dostoevsky reading value meal buyers… What took so long?
The best two lines of copy ever?
Came across this again yesterday in a book I was reading… It took my breath away. I was struck like never before by the clarity, the brevity, the rhythm, the precision.

QR codes hit Newburgh Street
