“Rage against the default”
Talk 2 of 4 at Kutztown University
September 2016

We didn’t want to repeat the intro to these talks all 4 times so you can read it for the first talk here.

Here are couple of preliminary thoughts (which is worth repeating) that are going to weave through most of these projects and talks.

• Rage against the default in as many times and ways as you can.
• Fight any urge to take the easy way.
• If there is a rule, there is usually a smart way to break it.
• Know the answer before you hear the question and then reword the question.

Example #1 : Col du Glandon

You can read the whole story with lots of pictures at the bottom by clicking here.

We’ve not been saying much about the Tour de Lead Graffiti project as a whole as we’ve just been focusing on a poster here and there. Below is the clamshell which we build to house the whole year’s set of posters. This one is for 2015. We produce special-made pastepaper for the cover of the clamshell.

Example #2 : O’Connor / Wildman wedding invitation

When we do custom wedding invitations we typically interview the couple to find out something about them that will make a good invite. Erin and Ray made beer. It took about 3 minutes of talking to them before we came up with doing a set of 12 beer coasters. Honestly, just about as easy as that sounds.

You can read more of the story by clicking here and going to our portfolio page.

This piece is so new we’ve not even put it in our online portfolio.
