Missing a cat? Make art July 27, 2009

Cardon Copy - 1

Have you ever seen a poorly made illegible poster advertising an apartment to rent or a missing cat and thought, “I could have made a much better one.” Cardon Webb, a New York designer and the man behind website Cardon Copy had obviously had this happen to him one time too many, so decided to actually do something about it.

From the website:

CARDON COPY, TAKES THE VERNACULAR OF SELF-

DISTRIBUTED FLIERS AND TEAR-OFFS WE HAVE ALL SEEN

IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. IT INVOLVES HIJACKING

THESE UNCONSIDERED FLIERS AND REDESIGNING THEM,

OVER POWERING THEIR MESSAGE WITH A NEW VISUAL

LANGUAGE. I THEN REPLACE THE ORIGINAL WITH THE

REDESIGN IN ITS AUTHENTIC ENVIRONMENT.

The experiment has produced interesting results, and most importantly of all, posters that are infinitely lovelier than their original counterparts.

I love this.

All it takes is some clip-art, like.
