Totally Tubular

For, like, totally tubular devotees of the 80s, this choice poster is the ultimate graphic mix tape of that bodacious decade. A child of the 80s, righteous designer Tim Sanders pays tribute to the era's pop culture lexicon with 52 terms, including examples of how to use them in clutch conversation. Arrayed in a four-color wheel of neon splendor, the infographic reminds you and your friends to stay rad to the max. The offset-printed poster on 100 lb., acid-free, FSC-certified paper is made in Seattle.

In 2013 a mom and pop team began a poster project. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. People began to take notice of their work, so the couple founded a studio and dubbed it Charley Chartwell. Today Timothy and Aurélia are working hard to help people enjoy more mirth. The process of each poster begins with a mix of ideas and sketches, which are gradually refined through research, experimentation, and occasional hair pulling. Timothy employs his background as an art director and playwright, and Aurélia keeps their projects well edited and on track. At the end of the week, it’s a great pleasure for both of them when they see a passerby stop at one of their posters, lean in close, and start to laugh.

Have a peek at Tim's sketchbooks to see how his thought process works as he creates new posters!
