Pampling’s For Sale

For Sale by Nesk keeps things simple for an unexpected icy gag. I love how aspirational it is, taking the everyday object of the refrigerator and turning it into a real estate status symbol. Igloos are regularly used as symbols of cold, but this design makes that connection feel more fresh by spotlighting its small size as well. With the fridge towering far over the heads of both the character and his home, it’s much bigger than it would be in reality, but is the perfect proportion to imply two floors of living space (and each with their own door!). It’s funny that the rectangular shape of the fridge makes it read as modernist architecture in this context, another factor differentiating the two properties. The subtle heart, just barely visible, is a nice way to indicate the protagonist’s feelings even though we’re not able to see his face. Really great work, simple in style but rich in storytelling.
