Slow Down Your Hurry Up campagin

Poster campaign and zine created for Facebook’s Menlo Park campus to encourage staff to question their values around work and play and to be mindful of the fact that busyness isn’t the same as productivity. Bringing this mindset to the project’s execution, we took time to explore combinations of screenprinted blends and halftone patterns to achieve a range of unique gradient effects in this series of posters. We also developed, designed, and printed “A Brief History of Taking Your Time: From BC to RN,” a complementing zine featuring facts and perspectives from “successful” individuals throughout history who prioritized working slowly, taking breaks, and cultivating interests outside of professional work. The zine features a screenprinted cover and risograph interior.
