The Ad Generator

random image from the ad generator

There are so many ads out there, you would think the last thing the world needs is something that generates more ads automatically. But the Ad Generator is kind of cool.

The Ad Generator
takes real corporate slogans (things like "Just do it" and "Think different"), chops them up and remixes them, and then combines them with related random images from Flickr to create ads that seem simultaneously real and off-center.

It's the creation of Alexis Lloyd, a grad student at Parsons New School of Design.
