Deadly Sin #1:
NO RELEVANCE.
No creativity porn. Please.
Don‘t try to be creative. People won‘t be able to decode your uber-
intelligent message.
They bounce
„We are“ -> „You can“
„What‘s in it for me?“
Answer this question first.
„Is it for people like me?“
Or is it for people who are looking for stoned rabbits?

If this would be a behaviour in reality....

data.“
