Advice To Sink In Slowly Posters

Beginning in 2006, the graduates of University College Falmouth have been creating posters with words of wisdom for the incoming freshman class. The posters are given as a gift to the students, and hold such great nuggets of truth like, “Don’t Fuck Your Flatmate”, or “Let go of what you think you know.” It’s like those horrible, inspirational posters from the 80s’, except these posters are slightly amazing.

The best part of this whole thing is that the posters are for sale at the Advice To Sink Slowly In site, for only £5 a piece! You’re thinking, oh, they must be absolutely tiny! Well they’re actually an A3 size (or roughly 11″ x 16″ for the Americans), so they’re pretty damn huge! My favorites are the ones above created by Luke Tong, which features some amazing anatomical drawings with bright red ink over the top of ’em. Really amazing stuff.

You can check out a ton more of the posters at the link above, or by visiting their Flickr account.

    Wow, thanks!

    ‘Advice to Sink in Slowly’ is a great project to be a part of – having collected some posters when i was a fresher it was an honour to pass on some advice as a graduate.

    John who runs the project (very talented illustrator) also keeps a blog worth checking out.

    I also worked on the flyers included with all the posters in collaboration with Bobby at Telegramme – he is SUPER amazing!
