Our clients are pidgeons



  • Just found it in an Italian software company.

    I don't know how offensive it sounds...

    Clients as pidgeons. 



  • Well, they weren't hard to find, and the image seems to be one of those auto-rotating ones, where each reload of the page pulls up a different image. After a couple of refreshes, I even got their clients being a pile of rocks! :-P

  • And, just because [i]someone[/i] has to say it: the birds are called pigeons. (No letter d. The d appears in pidgin, but that's a word for talking about languages, not a bird.)



  • But those aren't pigeons. Those are ducks.



  • I didn't say "[i]those[/i] birds are called pigeons," did I? Although looking at them now: they are pigeons. They're wading around in a puddle. Look at the heads.



  • I like the pigeons better than the typical Stupid Generic Pictures (SGPs) you see in anything business related.  They usually involve a combination of no less than two races, both genders, and a wide age range to give the (usually bogus) image that the organization is incredibly diverse and open-minded.

    Well, she is a non-stereotypical financial page reader: female, redhead, green eyes, possibly albino... bad composition for the shot, though, hiding half her face (unless she also has no mouth or something). 

    Have to agree with djork here: those "teamwork" shots are lame.  I forget what software I was installing where all the during-install splash images were like that.  We already bought the software; can you please stop shoving it down our throats now?

    I included him/her on purpose.  It looks like it's probably a woman (is that nail polish?), maybe White, maybe Asian... who knows.  It's still pretty ambiguous.
     



  • This about sums up the message they are portraying:

  • The people in these things are usually way better-looking than in any real workplace. If they used their real employees, it wouldn't be the lack of racial diversity that would make the company look bad. It would be the ugly.

    They certainly aren't ducks, but I don't think they're pigeons either. They're the wrong shape, and the plumage is inconsistent. It's hard to tell from this photograph, but I think they're doves or partridges.

    this is as depressingly true as it is universal.  If the world looked like the media portrays it there would be no entrepreneurial business ventures like pictured because we'd all be having sex CONSTANTLY.  lol.  everyone is perfectly fit?  I guess there goes that diabetes epidemic...  Everyone is of an age range from young professional to seasoned businessperson?  Well fuck old age pensions then, we don't have any elderly.  Fortunately, there are enough ads targeted directly for kids that we do appear to be reproducing as a species :P



  • I believe VS 05 (Pro) had lame images simiar to thie ones featured here

    Well they're visible minorities (there's a younger asian dude with long hair who looks pretty wise for his age, and a brown buy with a friendly smile whom I swear I've met before but have no idea where) but I don't recall any group photos...



  • Are you sure this company isn't environmentally involved? Then the picture makes perfect sense and nicely fit the SGP schema.
