Poster Perfect Advice
Poster Perfect Advice is *advice that is physically or digitally printed on a piece of paper or virtually simulated paper designed to be attached to a wall, vertical surface, or a vertically-simulated surface. Typically poster perfect advice posters include both textual and graphic elements, although a poster perfect advice poster may be either wholly graphical or wholly text.
Poster Perfect Advice posters are designed to be both eye-catching and informative. Poster Perfect Advice posters may be used for many purposes. They are a frequent tool of advisers (particularly by underrepresented food companies, alternative fuel agencies, health organizations, etc.), propagandists, protestors and other groups trying to communicate a message.
Poster Perfect Advice posters are also used for reproductions of artwork, particularly famous works, and are generally low-cost compared to original artwork.
The rage for prints at the fin de siècle in Paris occurred between the years 1890 and 1905. Prior to this time, prints primarily served as reproductions of great works or as political propaganda. However, during this time period, artistic quality became more important and printmaking blossomed into an autonomous art form. Nearly every French artist (at the time) experimented with the lithograph, etching or woodcut as a means of artistic expression, which gave rise to some amazingly colorful works of art.
The prints of Bonnard, Gauguin, Ibels, Steinlen, Toulouse-Lautrec and Vuillard were admired all over Paris by people from all walks of life. These posters were seen as illustrated theater programmes, sheet music, magazines, books and street posters.
Poster Perfect Advice posters are a combination of both Affirmation posters, which refer to posters that are meant to be motivational and inspirational, and Educational posters, which are meant to promote and explain research work.
While Poster Perfect Advice posters are rarely - if ever - peer-reviewed, their messages are widely accepted, in particular when circulated around Facebook or presented factually on blogs.
The advice presented on Poster Perfect Advice posters is a type of exhortation primarily relating personal or institutional opinions, belief systems, values, recommendations or guidance about certain situations (or foods) relayed in print or digital print format as a guide to action or conduct.
Put more simply - You have a choice in what you're made of - Poster Perfect Advice posters are recommendations about what might be thought, said, or otherwise done to address a problem, make a decision, or manage a situation.
While most advice is considered taboo, it is also considered helpful when offered in poster format. When the advice comes from a well-meaning friend, it is not always followed, and can be met with hostility or resentment. Presenting well-meaning advice on a poster brings with it a form of legitimacy as well as creative flair, making Poster Perfect Advice posters far more effective than traditionally orally delivered advice or anecdotal stories.
The term estampe originale - original print - is a contradiction in terms - if you consider the word 'original' to represent the concept of 'unique'.
A print is by definition not unique because it is an image intended for replication and produced by means of a technique that facilitates this.
With regards to Poster Perfect Advice posters 'original' does not refer to one-of-a-kind, but rather to the fact that these works of art were originally conceived of for this medium. (Printmaking in Paris, Van Gogh Museum, for the occasion of the exhibition Beauty in abundance. Highlights from the print collection of the Van Gogh Museum 2 February - 23 September 2012, Amsterdam).
While the Poster Perfect Advice posters presented herein are far different than the original prints that were produced in Paris during the last two decades of the nineteenth century, they do represent a current trend toward the visual display of quantitative information.
Poster Perfect Advice posters offer statistical graphics, charts, and tables, which represent an important leap in beautifully presented, sharp and learned, works of art. In this respect, the art is cognitive, with the graphics representing relationships and empirical data.
In a world of digital reading, Poster Perfect Advice posters are a highly sought after medium, a tour de force in educational trends. The trend toward informational graphics has increased a thousand-fold with the advent of the Internet and digitalized sharing of information.
Digital information, like prints before it, needs to be eye-catching as well as informative. Data-rich illustrations, when examined closely, offer value with every value point. This type of macro/micro readings can be presented in the space of an eye-span, and read at an unhurried pace at the viewer's leisure.
Rather than pouring over pages upon pages of academia, laypersons everywhere can benefit from years of research in order to make more informed choices for themselves as well as for society as a direct positive result of their improved actions.
No more will the world drink soda pop when Green Tea offers so many more physiological and emotional benefits, especially given the "teeth rotting" effect associated with the drinking soda pop.
Thanks to Poster Perfect Advice posters we all know the Top 10 Calorie Burning exercises, which means only we are to blame if we do not partake of one of these beneficial exercises.
The mass reproduction of information, as seen in this format, has a downside when posters are not updated timely or continue to be circulated even after new evidence has been presented and accepted in academia. Still, even with this challenge of timely information, digital Poster Perfect Advice posters are perhaps the fastest medium with which we can correct the problems associated with whether or not to eat eggs this month.
Given the ease with which we can make digital corrections - readers of this blog will attest to the many digital corrections made herein on a continual basis - we can safely assume that many of the Poster Perfect Advice posters we encounter are at least partially factual.
As with all advice or information, trust and verify the sources before accepting the information as true and/or acting upon it (that would be my advice).
