My wife, Paige is a junior high school English teacher. She’s awesome and has a way cooler job than I do. When she asked if I would help her design some stuff for her classroom, of course I agreed. Anything to combat the terrible, awful “design” that has permeated public education for far too long.
She had some posters that had some state-mandated writing tips on them. They were awful. They employed stock photos, bevels and embossing, drop shadows, mismatched fonts, photos mixed with illustrated elements… they made me want to puke.
I blitzed all 6 of them in one night and made these:
