Cardon Webb

 Allow me to introduce you to the brilliant young graphic designer, Cardon Webb. Webb takes random self-distributed fliers and advertisements off the lampposts of Astoria, completely redesigns them, and replaces the eye-sores. This takes street art to a whole new level. Designing each ad with time and care, Webb asks for no compensation or credit.

    While Cardon Webb’s designs look fantastic, a few of them are impossible to read quickly from–thereby making the flier useless. Isn’t reader engagement the cardinal rule of design?

    The original posters are way better sorry. The redesigned posters are more of a novelty thing and they are illegible. Hope he leaves the originals up for people to see the before and after at least. The cleaning lady poster makes me dizzy and looks demonic… You know it’s some little foreign lady that needs to feed her family of 3 since she’s single mom and along comes this guy and messes up her poster.

    I don’t know if he’s helping or hindering. His posters are nearly impossible to read. I feel bad for the cleaning lady. As an American society, we are unfortunately accustomed to seeing poorly designed fliers and posters. But as designers we are only successful if our work improves the image while strengthening the message.
