    Upside-Down Ads Reveal The Subtlety Of Depression

    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.
