The Green Sofa Phenomenon
There is a strange phenomenon to be seen with more and more of my colleagues: the green sofa syndrome (in circles of experts also known as GSS). It involves green settees in different variations placed at prominent spots of the respective website.
This is even more surprising if you consider how much service providers in our creative sphere and environment try to distinguish themselves from competitors and are keen to emphasise their own style. This leaves room for manifold speculations about how things could come to such a concentration of green settees on creative websites.
So far, the following sites are known as having the green sofa syndrome. However, the estimated number of unknown cases could be considerably higher:
- Are we on the track of a graphics and web designers’ conspiracy?
And what could be the aim of such a green-sofa-alliance?
- Are green settees addictive?
- There have also been speculations about the persons concerned and if they are victims of a presently unknown mental addiction related to green settees.
- Product placement
- Other observers assume that this is a very clever form of product placement as the world-wide overturn of green settees has been depreciating for years.
The green sofa syndrome will probably keep us in suspense for some time. The editorial department of Blog.Medianotions will keep on this highly pressing topic!
