Here’s a new poster that Downtown Charlottetown Inc. is using to promote the core as a place for working. Ah yes, downtown working — I can take my jacket off, sling it over my shoulder, and talk on my sleek mobile phone. At least when I’m not gathered around a laptop in a pure white room working with colleagues.
I’ve always been firmly in the “if it’s a good idea, it will work” camp, and I find lifestyle marketing like this to not only be insulting — I actually do work downtown, and that’s about as far from my photographic reality as you can get — but simply misguided and wasteful.
