Provocative Literacy Ads Via France

Good ads for a great cause.

I wish this cause was more of a priority in America, where the illiteracy rate is about 14% (I suspect that figure is low) — but 21% of adults read at below a 5th grade level and 19% of high school graduates can’t read at all (disgraceful).

A real concern is: Are these nicely art-directed ads too smart? Will most people skip right over them in publications? I wish I had the media schedule of the campaign. Maybe it’s online only.
Note: the ads have been translated to English for worldwide publicity purposes.

Ad agency: DDB Paris.
