Play Everything, the Poster

A few months back, I wrote a piece I called “Play Everything.” It was a response to a significant amount of Internet rage over some game, I forget now, and I had an overwhelming need to do something positive and constructive to purge myself from that toxicity, to in some sense rebalance my life. So I wrote this, and later workshopped it and refined it.

It resonated with my awesome friend Brianna Reed, who was already feeling like making a typography poster as a portfolio piece and as a fun thing to do. This is what she made. And now this is what we’re selling.

Feel free to share the image around. Like we say, we’re pretty proud of it. Brianna does gorgeous work. (Also, she’s now a full-time freelancer who is totally for hire for her graphic design and WordPress mojo…)

It’s an 11″x17″ print that we’re selling for US$15 through etsy. They look really gorgeous — here’s them from the packaging.

We want the message to spread around, and figured offering it as a poster would be a cool way to do that. I’ve got 25 on the shop, and Brianna & I will both have some on-hand for the conventions we’re going to at the end of October. (If this takes off enough to cover costs, we might do a bigger run, maybe offer larger than 11×17 if people tell us what they want. But for now, we’re just super excited to get this out to awesome people.)

Play everything, my friends.

    Pretty stoked, dude. Thanks for the shoutout. *fistbump*

    This is excellent. What a great way to turn the negative into something positive. I’ll be spreading the word.

    Hey there! It looks like it sold out. I’d be interested in another print run. 11×17 again would be fine with me.

      Yay! We’ve got some more 11×17 on order, which I believe will arrive nearly next week. Then I can restock the store — I want to make sure they don’t get lost or damaged in transit before I do.

      We can’t afford yet to do 18x24s (due to cost and to storage), but we’re looking into how we can in the future.
