What do you do when someone threatens your hard work with an infringement claim? Well, you could fight it, but even if you’re right you might end up on the wrong side of a settlement. Sometimes it’s better to go back to the drawing board. Make your work a bit less infringey and a whole lot better. Make it more interactive. That’s what SlapSad did, so say hello to Quotemanteaux, Part Deux – this time, the infringement’s up to you!*
Part Deux is all about user-generated content. The collection features all six original Quotemanteaux postcards, including the one that a certain well-known sports brand just couldn’t do with. Now, however, the quotes are incomplete and unattributed, meaning you’ll have to get creative and finish them off yourself before mailing. Sure, you could simply insert the famous go-to quotes, but wouldn’t it be more interesting to come up with your own timeless proverbs?
Design notes: Part Deux uses the same Deutsche Uncialis font and backgrounds as before, but the colors have been inverted. The idea was to shoot for something dark, gritty, and murky – something that could blend right in with the pages of trademark law – and I’d say SlapSad pretty much nailed it with this one.
Ready to get started on your own quotemanteaux? Then go check out Part Deux today!
