For those that are unaware of this annual shopping event, ‘Black Friday’ is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year in America. Retailers often open their doors at ridiculous hours of the morning (i.e. 00.01 hours), to serve the hordes of people who queue for hours in a frenzied attempt to get their hands on the best bargains before stocks run out. Black Friday shopping is known for attracting aggressive crowds, with annual reports of assaults, shootings, and throngs of people trampling on other shoppers in their desperation to get that extra discount on the latest consumer craze. Some may call it madness, but it certainly provides plenty of fuel for the creative fires. Here’s some of the designs we’ve come up with:
