You Are Here.

Love, love, love this poster from Johnson Banks. It’s so clever and entirely too truthful.

“This project dates back to the mid-nineties, and was originally meant to be a tongue-in-cheek, semi-autobiographical but mainly fictional guide to graphic design for students. It soon spiralled out of control and became a bittersweet journey through the many different lives of a graphic designer.”

This is the third printing of the poster and each time a few new blurbs pop up on it. You can get one at the Johnson Banks shop for £20 plus shipping.


Right Brain Terrain: AMPs.

Ever see the motivational poster with the eagle soaring high above the plains that’s supposed to fill you with inspiration of an unmeasuarable magnitude? These posters aren’t those. Back in the day – 2005 – Right Brain Terrain came to the conclusion that they weren’t moved by those posters, so they must not be motivating too many others either. What followed shortly thereafter was the birth of Alternative Motivaional Posters – AMPs for short. AMPs are bold, contemporary and well-designed. My favorite is Focus. I’d actually come across the poster imagery a few years ago and had no idea where it came from, but hung on to it. I’m thrilled to have finally located the genius behind the posters. And I think the Focus print will my gift to me for moving into an office with an actual door.
