I’ll be out of office until late next week, but I thought I’d leave you with some arty, designy, creativity things to ruminate on in the meantime. Here’s the latest Creative Wavelength round-up:

Archiwriter

The Archiwriter poster series by Federico Babina imagines the conceptual houses of famous writers. I love these on two different levels, as a bookworm and as a designer.


 

Craft & Graft

Pete of Craft & Graft has a great poster series of his own, reimagining a movie poster every day of 2016, like this one for The Birds. Love some of his minimal interpretations!


 

15 Lies Clients Tell Their Designers

15 Lies Clients Tell Their Designers. It’s scary-funny how many of these I’ve encountered.

If you’re a fan of the natural and the magical, like I am, check out the beautiful work of Kindra Nikole.


 

⇒ The Mass Poetry project is taking Boston by storm, literally, with sidewalk poetry that only shows up when it rains. Very cool.

You can never own all the magic in the world. Takeaway: stop trying, and just enjoy things.

Whatever you do, don’t quit your job to pursue your passion. “Quitting your job to pursue your passion is bullshit. […] The statement alone reeks of privilege. It confirms you had a full-time job to begin with. It confirms you had time to develop a passion (that you can capitalize off of, enough to meet your cost of living). […] I don’t want anyone who works a 9-to-5 to feel like a fool for staying at a stable job, or feel wrong if they actually enjoy it. I want people to know that nearly all the overnight entrepreneur success stories in the spotlight leave out the privilege afforded to them in the first place.
