Office Propaganda posters - finally got around to them

These posters are something I've wanted to do for a while. I just haven't had a lot of time lately. But I finally got around to doing a few. I went ultra minimalistic (for me anyway) and kept the colour palette down.

They are perfect for your office walls, especially if you have an office manager with a sense of humour. Or decorate your cubicle with one or more of them. I'd say they even work in a home office. Need a new mouse pad? Grab one of these to remind yourself not to tweet what you had for lunch, while at work.

As always, they are available for print (at many sizes) at Zazzle.com/stevethomas. Or click on the image to take you directly to that print.

(Disclaimer: They are all in fun and though it may sound like I have a gripe with a few of the issues I've tackled, I don't. But some might.)

That urge to check your Facebook page or send out a tweet can be very hard to suppress, especially when you have a few spare minutes in front of your computer at work. But each of those wall posts and tweets have a time peg so watch out. Or just do what the poster says (small print at bottom, "Unless it's part of your job description.")

[Post this above the water cooler]
Sure it's fun and exciting to hear about who hooked up with who at the last office party, or whether someone will get canned over a nasty company-wide email, but it can also hurt. So remember, if you don't want to hear it just walk away and if you do hear it, please don't repeat. (can you see the two larger faces? hint: they are profiles).

No one wants to be responsible for letting spyware into the company's computer system or setting a virus loose on the network, so don't open those attachments. Let your IT team take care of any downloads you think you need.

[Post this in the restrooms]
Do everyone a favour, when you use the restroom wash your hands afterward. And if you have to come in to work when you are feeling under the weather, wash up frequently, cough/sneeze into your elbow and avoid handshakes where possible.

[Post this in the breakroom or cafeteria]
It's simple. Pick up after yourself. I'm sure you have to do it at home so why stop at work. Plus it helps the cleaning staff.

Now, for some, the red might be a bit much. So, luckily, the posters are available in this nice, calm blue tone:

And if you noticed that little circle at the bottom of each poster, this is what it looks like large. I made a tshirt out of it. You can choose your colour tee and that colour will replace the red in this image.

MIGHT tees is selling a tshirt I designed

My good friends at MIGHT tees asked me to create something that would compliment their brand and logo. We came up with this take on Rock 'em Sock 'em robots: Their mascot besting the two robot boxers.

MIGHT tees also has some other great shirts for "cool nerds" available. Check them out!

For fans of Dracula and vampires (and also Twihards)

Here is the next installment of the Classic Monster restaurant logos. It follows zombie diner, mummy deli and werewolf beer. This one answers the question: What if Dracula opened a restaurant. You can be sure it would be an upscale dining experience. The flourishes above the text represent a bat, can you see it? As always, tshirts are available at Zazzle.com.

And for the Twihards out there, I drummed one up especially for you. Tshirt available here. (It in no way is affiliated with any existing restaurant or any movie or book. It is merely inspired by them.)
