Re: IF ...THEN... JAVA!


I like the concept but think it would work better with:

if (sleep < 4hrs) {
Java cup image
}

But its hard to use code in a design effectively ^^.

It sure is! I chose zzz because it was shorter and it seemed funnier.

I agree there are many ways to achieve this joke, but I ran this by reddit first to see if they thought it was funny, and they did/do so far, so I just went ahead and submitted.

sorry! I meant to put zzz instead of sleep (my brain switched)! It's a nice design, ^^. I suppose it's just my like of curly brackets.

Haha glad to know zzz worked. Thank you for the kind words. I truly love those curly brackets too, wonderful shapes they are

I like it, funny BUT it's not a restaurant. Maybe should have put that in a "Java Cafe" or something,

Fair opinion - the design brief asked for an ad or slogan for an imaginary restaurant - and I think this achieves that, looks like it could be billboard ad (if the said brandname were JAVA)

You'd see a lot of ads that never spell out the restaurant name (McDonalds for instance)

I'm really quite sad that this got rejected. I love it.
And it's perfect for every college student I know.
