No one has “exclusivity” to feature an electric socket as the main visual in any communication piece of work; however when a renowned global client has already used it to communicate facial expressions of shock or delight (indicated in the headline); then one cannot help being shocked at its “adaptation” in the local market by an internationally affiliated agency to communicate a facial expression by means of an electric socket as the main visual!!! It is however worth mentioning that the work was actually published and for a good cause.

Plagiarism: The abuse of another’s original work by copying it and passing it off as one’s own. As defined in Alastair Campbell book titled The Designer’s Lexicon. Page: 293 ISBN:0-304-35505-4


A copycat is a person that mimics or repeats the behavior of another. The term is often derogatory, suggesting a lack of originality. The expression may derive from kittens that learned by imitating the behaviors of their mothers. – Wikipedia
