I have just discovered the “some ecards” website, which allows you to create online cards with a vintage and ironic touch. You’ve probably seen them circulating on Facebook and other social network, but might not have taken noticed of the little copyright reference at the botton of these images. I hadn’t either until today, when it prompted me to check out the website and see who was creating all these funky little cards. It turns out that they are created by the company’s team and by individual users. I decided to try it out and was able to produce this card about political correctness, with a quote from Irish journalist Fintan O’Toole, which eloquently states what I think of this concept.
By the way, I really like the way the company presents itself. I’m quoting it in whole as it is a good example of nice witty marketing:
Someecards may or may not be the greatest thing since ecards. It was created by Brook Lundy and Duncan Mitchell and a dollar and a half-assed dream. New cards, categories, and features will be frequently added until everyone involved with the site dies.
