You might remember that back in November Believe in treated us to a new publication they’d been working on called You Are The Map Maker, a book in which Australian author and blogger Bernadette Jiwa invited 13 creative entrepreneurs to offer advice to those just starting out, through a collection of articles (have a butchers when you get a mo).
Well here’s the scoop – YATMM has launched a series of 12 typographic posters based on the project and following the theme of “words of wisdom”, each poster is focusses on a unique quotation by Jiwa. The initial 12 statements have been chosen because each expresses a potentially important truth; they are about overcoming obstacles, growing in confidence, becoming better at what we do or simply choosing to be happier; they have been designed to grace the home, office or studio wall of anyone with an appreciation of design and type. The strength of each statement is amplified through the design, using bold type and creative composition.
Believe in founding and creative director Blair Thomson said: “The start of our relationship was when Bernadette asked me to contribute to the You Are The Map Maker book. As a result we put ourselves forward to design the book, which resulted in several international design awards. These posters are the next chapter in the story, and we’re delighted to be working with Bernadette once again, this time as partners.”
Jiwa herself said: “The team at Believe in took hold of my original vision and turned it into something more exciting than I ever could have hoped for. The new designs are amazing and I can’t wait to see the first posters roll off the presses.”
The posters are printed on high quality gloss paper using archival quality inks, and is supplied unframed. They are available worldwide from www.mapmakershop.com, with each poster costing $40 / £29.95 + shipping.
