nose picking PSA

Using Gimp or a similar program, create a public service announcement billboard on something that really aggravates you about people, society, the world, etc. It can be serious, goofy, but not offensive. Use a 680 x 300 work space in order to mimic the space of a billboard and have fun with how your positioning, font, colors, and images can help get your message across in a small space. Take it to the next level but superimposing it on a photo of an existing billboard!

YOUR TURN SIGNAL. USE IT. – Design Assignment #2

This is perhaps one of my greatest pet peeves on the road – people who don’t use their turn signals. I’ve been driving for 5 years without any sort of accident happening to me or because of me, and I think at least 10% of that 100% success rate is …

PSA Billboard

After a particularly infuriating trip to target, I decided to use the DS106 PSA Billboard assignment to vent my frustrations (Why do people think they can just walk around shopping, playing horrible music LOUDLY on their iphones?!). To accomplish this submission, I messed around with Gimp – a free photo-editing …

I hope no one you’ve ever known has wasted money on this.

 

This is one of my biggest pet peeves.  Since when was it cool for your car to be really loud?

One of my friends got rid of his muffler.  Whats the point and why is this necessary?

For this assignment I was to pick something  about people/society/ the world that aggravates me and make a psa billboard about it.

Ricer Honda Billboard

I live in Salina, KS.. All I see around her is a bunch of stupid ricer Honda boys driving around with spoilers heavier than their cars.. Useless body kits, and retarded tail lights… The cars are slow and ugly. It’s just something that must be stopped. So that’s my bilboard
