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.

Tim and Aurelia Sanders think people should enjoy more mirth. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. Their process 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 Aurelia keeps their projects well edited and on track. "It's a great pleasure to see a passerby stop at one of our posters, lean in close, and start to laugh," they say.

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