It Must Be An iPhone Ad, Right?


Oh look! White background. Dancing icons. Lots of animation. Music plays a primary role. It's an iPhone ad! Oops, sorry. It's an LG Arena ad and it's being hyped by SocialMedia8. So make them happy. Link to it! Embed it! Forward it to a friend! Post it on Facebook! Bl`og about it! Tweet about it! Digg it!

Or...just lament the fact it's yet another iPhone wannabe.

As a budding young designer, a (rather shoddy?) creative director once told me, "Design is nothing more than riping off other people." Of course, he was right; in the words of Solomon the Wise, there is nothing new under the sun.

However, there's that whole part about ripping someone off, but doing it better and adding your own touch, so that by the time the product is finished, it's a new animal that bears little or no resemblance to the "inspirational" media you started with.

I think maybe LG got intimidated and forgot that part.

I mean, do YOU want to try to compete with iPhone?
