I made this very late last night. It has been an ongoing effort of mine, both with this blog and in my life, to try to help facilitate a more open culture and dialogue between not only creatives, but people, specifically young people, in general. We are suffering from a me-me-me, survival of the fittest mentality in the United States that is slowly eroding our integrity abroad and whittling away at our relationships both with each other and our brothers and sisters abroad. I know something so miniscule as creating a poster doesn’t exactly help to shift this paradigm, but it is an immediate form of creative that I am capable of, and at least can help to create a somewhat memorable typographic image that can help burn something simple and iconic into memory. That was what I was thinking when I created this poster last night very late before sleep. I think we are forsaking style right now for message and we need to remember that it is about communication. We have to do all we can to make things better, in whatever way we can.
With that said, I was fairly pleased with how the poster came out and felt that it was the message that was the most important. I hope you dig it. If you don’t, that’s fine too. We are all cut from a different stone and that is what makes life so great. Regardless, please know that I sincerely believe it is going to take us all, being totally transparent and honest with one another, to change the world we live in now and make it somewhere that we can remain in the future. We need eachother to do this and expressing this creatively is a small and subtle psychological way that we can help move the needle on the culture dial towards the proper direction. I encourage you to do the same.
I also wanted to thank all of you for reading the blog. Good comments and bad, it is a growing experience everyday and it has been really exciting and fun engaging with you day after day. The internet is an amazing tool, and I do think it will play an important part in our future in allowing us to speak to eachother, honestly, despite our derailed leadership. I think we can find a way, together to take this world back and make it better. I really do.
