’Isaiah’ is a contemporary take on scripture. The poster addresses issues surrounding our advanced state of capitalism by using an astoundingly relevant verse from Isaiah's prophecies of judgment. It frames consumerism as our new religion by using familiar advertising aesthetics. The pop of the neon and expressive type is, however, a facade that only partly covers up capitalism's crumbling promise of freedom and welfare. Itself a product on the market, ’Isaiah,’ questions our tethered relationship to cycles of consumption.
“Truth is for sale”
"and innocence is negotioable". Florian Mewes - who was designing this poster together with Timothy Gambell - in his lecture at 315 on A in Boston.
“We are all whores”
In his review the poster Travis Robertson, Creative Director at ad agency Arnold Worldwide, calls “Isaiah” a very real sensation of guilt and contrition.
