Implications - As the confluence of the art and corporate worlds continues, one effective way a corporation can create memorable advertising is by enlisting respected illustrators and graphic designers to create images for their marketing. By recruiting some of the art world's best, the company establishes credibility among art watchers and can trumpet their support for the local art community. They also stand a better chance of constructing original marketing that muddies the lines between advertising and artistic creations.
