THIS ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN. My graphic designer soul is sobbing
Nothing beats imagination.
Quote of the week - 02/12/2013
"A Song of Ice and Fire Book Series / A Game Of Thrones TV Show is one of our favorite things in this world. This is a personal poster project consisting of 14 of our favorite quotes from the series so far. We’ll probably make more though - there’s still a lot on the quote list. If you’re interested in purchasing the posters, visit YAWN’s official shop!”

I don’t think a white person has had so much sass in all the history of sassyness as in this moment. 11 probably invented sass.
“11 probably invented sass”
11 invented sass my ass.
This kind of makes me sad. What if their dream was to be an advertiser? Don’t knock someone’s passions because you think they sold out.
A FUCKING ADVERTISING MANIFESTO.
@flatvernacular’s Hand-Drawn, One-of-a-Kind Wallpapers
Payton Turner and Brian Kaspr are the duo behind Flat Vernacular (@flatvernacular), a Brooklyn-based design company that specializes in one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn and hand-printed wallpapers. Payton and Brian draw each wallpaper to order and print them in small batches. Each roll requires 6-8 weeks to produce and they document the creative process on Instagram.
"Instagram has introduced us to new clients as well as new artists, designers and inspiring visionaries," Payton says. "Our goal with our Instagram is simply to let people in—to share our story, the process and the ideas behind our company and work. Plus, it’s a wonderful way to share our intense love for pattern!"
For behind-the-scenes shots of their creative process and first looks at new products, be sure to follow Payton and Brian: @flatvernacular

One of my latest projects was reappropriating my drawing into an arts centre and restaurant entrance space. I also make books, illustrate and enjoy a challenge.

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.
Looking for inspiration. Thanks Paula Scher.
