Rooster Post Header


Rooster Post is a post production house specializing in editorial, VFX and design for television and interactive advertising. To wish partners and clients a happy new year, the “Rooster – Don’t Be A Large Cock” Calendar was born. It’s a lighthearted reminder that despite the stresses, pressures and frustrations we face in the advertising industry, we shouldn’t be cocks (rude or mean) around the office. The calendar contained 12 rooster portraits and individual rooster bios that highlighted the types of characteristics we shouldn’t adopt in 2013 if we truly wanted to make the year a happy one for all.
