NOTE: These posters are parodies of posters created by A Voice for Men. None have been endorsed by A Voice for Men.
Devout followers of my blog — all 3 of you — will remember the last time that manboobzers decided to pitch in and help the Men’s Rights Movement by making posters that, while terrible, were still better than theirs.
Let me quickly summarize some principles of good graphic design* for posters.
Well-designed posters should:
- attract attention
- be read and understood quickly and easily
* I know nothing about good graphic design principles. I pulled these principles out of my posterior.
This [sexy cupcake poster] is an actual poster that some MRAs think will actually win people over to their cause. How, I’m not exactly sure. What exactly about a cupcake with a tiara is supposed to scream “men’s rights” to random pedestrians who might catch a glimpse of this poster wheatpasted to a hoarding while on their way to work?
And then he issues a challenge:
Man Boobzers, can you do better?
I’m pretty sure we can. If by “do better” you mean create posters that are fractally more ridiculous than these.
Bagelsan starts us off:
With my last of this batch, I was pretty sure I had designed a poster sillier than the most diehard MRA could ever hope to create.
Noting that “the MRM tends towards just dumping an entire blog post onto a piece of paper and calling it a poster” katz joins in!
I do a few more:
Okay, I wanted to publish something today — there are a bunch more posters, and they are wonderful, so I will do a part 2 with the later arrivals tomorrow!
