ReCraft Your Work Rules: New Rules of Work by Division of Labor
This series of limited edition posters sort of like new rules of the workplace for today’s companies. Except, they them old-school and letterpressed them on card stock that either makes them looks like old Bomb-Pops or as if they fell out of a pack of Life Savers. It seems the thoughts are pretty universal and extend way beyond the world of advertising and production. If you want to purchase a set, visit their newly created store.
We’ll take 100 copies of “Criminalize Decaf,” please.

What You Get:
A Web-resolution (1100 pixel) custom portrait, tailored to your most bizarre of requests. You can get a very traditional portrait done or as outlandish as you can dream—so long as it remains in the portrait format. Zombies, Hipsters, Pirates, Ninjas, Superheroes, Robots, etc. are all fair-game themes in which you can have yourself transmogrified in painted form. Want to let me have free reign? That works too, but I want to make something unique to you.
