Beat Museum Brings Artist Angst to Livid Life
Considering we're still detoxing from a distastefully delightful
Popeye's turkey (don't ask), we thought we'd kick off the morning
with a campaign loaded with pretty pictures.
So here's creative for The Beat Museum, courtesy of Grey, SF. We hear
you'll dig it if you're a big Kerouac fan, or at least somebody who
still waves the flag for counterculture (you reverse conformist, you).
The posters will appear in magazines and on bus shelters throughout
the hilly city. Website in the works.
We like them -- they've got that classy grit that so typifies the
talented (and completely raging) bohemian beatnik. Plus, they teach
you stuff without making you feel like a literature-starved ass-hat.
Our favourite is the poster we've affectionally dubbed the "fucking
book" poster. Others (also nicknamed by us) include "hitchhiker
thumb," "la grande HOWL," "no rules," and "junkies, drunks and criminals."
