I have to admit that I kind of like it, not many company dare to advertise something like this, just wondering, does the boss has a good sense of humor?

    well i don’t think so, depends actually, the ads just want to be different from the others, it shows that working there is somehow differ from other firms, and a person that they want should be creative and different which can come out with X-tra ordinary ideas, X-tra works during weekends, can handle verything extra ..ahhahah…sometimes when there are too much thinking, the architect somewhat can be so different from others physically or mentally,, enjoy, everyone have different ideas rite?????

    It grabbed enough attention to get a post on an architects blog. Good or bad, the vacancy ad has become viral and will get more exposure. The advertiser’s job is done.

    Hi everyone :)
    I doubt that a designer produced such work… The design quality is quite bad in comparison to International standards! I would never work there even if they pay loads! The impression I get is that they are not professional. AND… trying to synthesize a joke with a bad sense of humor can only make the offer worse.

    There’s the good, the bad and the ugly. Most times only the ugly is real. Or… when i’m good, i’m good, when i’m bad, i’m really good. The mind behind the adv. has been to places many do not dare. i think that is institutionalised thinking on their part, whereas the creative mind is not limited by other’s boundaries. so, do you want a good architect or not.

    it’s clear that this company isn’t too worried about infringing international copyright or trademark laws — their business name is ‘borrowed’ from an IT firm (who wouldn’t expect a few extra clients / brand recognition thanks to the success of its namesake), and then this advert, which ‘borrows’ similarly from a TV series and a comic book / film franchise — one day the lawyers will come knocking…

      I doubt you can sue them for the Veritas word. According to Wikipedia – In Roman mythology, Veritas, meaning truth, was the goddess of truth, a daughter of Saturn and the mother of Virtue. It was believed that she hid in the bottom of a holy well because she was so elusive. Her image is shown as a young virgin dressed in white.

    hahaha, atleast they’re not worried about being sensible. I’d rather work somewhere where people learn to have a bit of fun, and sure, make lame jokes, but it’s better than working in a black and white office with the same thing happening over and over again.
    And their advertisement worked didn’t it? we’re talking about it, and its attracted attention.
