The Stupid Side of Technology

by on January 25, 2015

A series of cleverly fabricated inventions, as comedy takes technology for a ride

As connoisseurs of fine typographic art and poster design, we are especially taken with this brilliantly creative and hilarious take on the ‘stupid side’ of technology. Sharp and tongue-in-cheek, these witty posters from the always excellent H-57 creative studio, apart from being an entertaining read, also make for some very aesthetically attractive and interesting typographic styles.

The posters advertise fictional inventions which illustrate, through their sheer lack of necessity, the extravagance and indulgence modern technology can be guilty of.

This visual set makes an excellent companion to the similar subject of technology’s many pitfalls, brilliantly and stunningly explored in Sight, a satirical short film that is both a very cleverly executed concept, as well as a visual treat to behold, as we have previously seen here on The Unlearner.
