Hugh recently decided to offer a gift as a thank you to the subscribers on his mailing list: One of his big, $400 images, call "Create or Die", at a steeply discounted price. They sold fast, but I recently became aware that there is a semi-secret discount code available, that can be used to reduce the price of this limited edition print to just $165, which is a discount of about 60%.
So, if you want one of these uber-cool screen prints, just go to the gapingvoid gallery, to the "Create of Die" page and go through the process as if you were going to buy it at full price. Then at check out, put in promo code COD235, and just like that, the price will calculate it at $165, plus shipping and handling.
So, just who is Hugh Macleod?
Hugh MacLeod is a brand consultant, copywriter and cartoonist. Born in America but educated in the UK, he has spent most of his life shuttling between the two countries. He started out in straight TV advertising writing in the early 90s but with the advent of new media it evolved into new brand thinking and cultural transformation. His website, http://gapingvoid.com, is widely read in the blogosphere. His cartoons 'drawn at the back of business cards' have made him an instant hit.
As a successful blogger Hugh has been known for his ideas on how WEB 2.0 affects marketing and advertising. In 2004 he wrote “How To Be Creative” and “The Hughtrain”, which both got widely read in the blogosphere.Hugh’s basic mantra about blog marketing is “Blogs are a good way to make things happen indirectly”, a point lost on many corporate types.
Here are some of Hugh's witty cartoons.
- Your idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. The more amazing, the more people will click with your idea. The more people click with your idea, the more it will change the world.
