Piss off hipster’s – that’s my territory

Thanks to Davinia today I finally realised what’s the whole buzz happening at the moment about moustaches.

Out of the blue peeps would think it became SO funny! Girls would take web cam pictures and upload it on tumblr, the cream of the story and the latest trend (apparently!) is to make a tattoo at the one side back of your finger. Like that:

Hipsters are evading this world & Freddie doesn’t want to become average:

I know, they have a good shield, good excuse for that. They say its Movember! Have you heard about it?

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Seriously?

This young man doesn’t look like he’s  made an appointment at doctor’s. He thinks that he’s extremely cool …and lonley chicks would secretly press reblog at his pic:

I’m saying: “Stop That Derogatory Altitude To Moustaches. Go away hipsters, because everything you touch (like king Midas) becomes meaningless.

To sum it up – My visual manifest:

And for those who’re not in tune at first pic its really me

Helvetica

That was the second time I watched Helvetica Faces looks more familiar, I’m getting the designers jokes. (and whatever happens between today and March I’m going to see Sagmeister!)

Could the use of the typeface be abusive? Are we’re living in Helvetica’s hegemony?

Behind every piece of design lies its special meaning, 70% of the people that look at the piece would only judge it due to their personal preferences: “I like it”, “What a crap!” Only 20% of the folks would grin: “Yeah, Helvetica bold”. 5% of them would drag Iraq war and big corporation’s manipulation and would be right too. (Being too clever is scary and harmful for your health) But it’s still a damn.good.typeface.: Clear and Nice all the way round. So my answer is by the time we’ll have its decent substitution, use it wisely i.e:

Go and check the audience that will judge your work,  their taste & expectations.  Go and spend weeks torturing your creative imagination, coming up with THAT idea, read more books than blogs. And finally give your soul to any of the projects you do, anticipate and go beyond, even if its an ad for toilet spray.

Don’t go for easy way out:
