happy monday all

I don't know who did this, who I stole it from, or any other pertinent information.


UPDATE: Designer Dan Gneiding asks: “Is it better to diversify your portfolio or deliver one strong consistent message? Clearly diversity breeds longevity (1975—1996 for the Ramones vs 1977—1983 for the Misfits), but who is the sounder punk investment?”

For his poster of punk band “wants,” Gneiding, a senior graphic designer at Urban Outfitters and an adjunct professor at Philadelphia University, listened to every song on every Ramones album, and then did the same for every Misfits album. “Luckily they are punk songs, so [it] only took about an hour,” he says on his Dribbble page.

The type, textures, and colors are spot-on, and the stark contrast in percentages really makes it a winner. Pie charts will always be an effective means of communicating information, especially when the information is as straightforward and menacing as a single Misfits lyric.
