Singapore-based suicide prevention organisation Samaritans of Singapore recently ran a series of ads which cleverly uses ambigrams to highlight the difficulty in understanding and identifying depression. The print ads feature images showing a positive message.
However, when the ad is inverted, a sadder, more depressing message is revealed.
The advertisement’s tagline “The signs are there if you read them” is printed upside-down so that readers will know to flip the ads over.
It also reinforces the message that it is easy to miss the warning signs of depression.
okay I’m gonna reblog this again because last time I didn’t say what I thought about this picture
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. This makes the universe of Harry Potter so much more magical than I ever dreamed it to be. In the movies and books it’s like an average library with magic books, but this picture shows a Hogwarts alive and brimming with magic. The shelves are impossibly tall because you can enchant stuff to help you reach, so why SHOULDN’T the shelves be huge? I love the girls walking on books like stairs, the cat who got caught on a flying book, Hermione sitting on a book like a chair, everyone’s casual confidence in their unbelievable magic because it’s natural to them. It’s part of their everyday lives. I love the Harry Potter world so much that it hurts, and this picture is gorgeous and makes me relive the magic I have loved since I was little.
what makes it even better is when you realize its not a bunch of different people but a bunch of different Hermiones all studying at once :D
this is a really lame idea, but what the heck. ok so if you see this picture on your dash, you HAVE to smile. just force a smile, it’ll (hopefully) make you feel better. and reblog this so people can see this and smile. if you’re having a bad day, just remember that i love you and i’m (and all of the people who reblog this) here for you! and remember to smile, because no matter what happens, it always gets better.
THIS IS NICE BC I KNOW THAT THIS POST HAS MADE 26000+ PEOPLE SMILE INCLUDING ME
