motivations for the chronically trite
Motivational posters have been around since the beginning, when cavemen drew the first "Hang in there, baby" with a cute saber-toothed tiger kitten hanging from a branch on the walls of their caves. Only briefly interrupted by the pot & peace posters from 1967 - 1972, they've recently experienced a truly loathsome uptick courtesy of Instagram filters and social sharing. Add to that the shallow seas of the hipster era, and we find ourselves drenched to the bone by the perfect storm of mawkish sentimentality and deep-not-deep cliche. Shudder along if you feel the spirit. Fortunately, for those who aren't blessed with the emotional IQ of a 14-year-old girl, Design You Trust is featuring a series of parody posters for the cynical amongst us. Consider it still drinking the Kool-Aid… but with a whiskey back.
