Don't Be Stupid Typographic Poster for Free Download

    Newer Older

    Have been fond of this quote for years, and have used it on multiple incarnations of my personal blog. Every now and again I see someone tweeting it, so I thought time to make it into a nice poster. To immortalize these well meaning words : "The probability of somebody watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your actions."

    One weight of typeface for the entire poster, Prelo Slab-Serif.

      good one... although there's a typo I think, shouldn't it read: "... the stupidity of your actions"? instead of: "...the stupidity of you're actions"?

      Amended and embarrased. :)

      At least the typo in your description was not on the poster. That would have been bad, but VERY comical.

      dirty... it WAS wrong, and did say "you're". It really does seem to be funnier with the original typo...

      Dude, you should've kept the typo! It adds so much more to the poster.

      Great example for demonstrating vertical and horizontal alignment and rule of thirds. I don't know about the quote though. Does it imply that it would be OK to be stupid if no one would ever see you or catch you being stupid? Or that those who are wise or circumspect (or whatever the opposite of stupid is) will go unacknowledged or disregarded because they don't do stupid things? Regardless, this is a fine application of design and type.

      Wow, appreciate all the kind words on this poster. Kinda flabbergasted really, never seen this amount of page views for anything else, even you guys who are faving it.

      Thank you, and I mean that most sincerely.

      You're really gonna take this dude down huh? Great poster and I would certainly be doing the same thing. I hate that people devalue and rip off work like it's no big deal so I'm glad to see you taking action against him. And it's great to see all the support you're getting. Later
