Typographic Beer Directions by Smooth-as-Sandpaper Typographic Beer Directions by Smooth-as-Sandpaper
This assignment was to simply create a poster with directions from our home (Central New Jersey for myself) to Philadelphia. I themed it around the idea of getting a beer every ten minutes at a different bar along the way. I tried to convey the idea of a drunken night by making it jumbled and somewhat confusing. I also threw in some random things that one might have said in this adventure. All the directions are there though. Read the disclaimer.

Thanks for the DD and the feedback everybody. I really appreciate it.

We had an assignment just like this in one of my classes, but this is a completely different way of thinking about how to portray the directions! I never thought of doing it this way, it's defiantly an inspiration and the way you incorporated more into the back story just gives it all the more meaning. Good Job and a Job Well Done!

This is really fantastic! Inspired me to create a thank you card for friends, using nothing but different fonts and very minimal actual graphic work.

I don't know, maybe its just the idea they used, because it would be obvious if they used the exact same one because of the directions.
