Working Class by carts Working Class by carts
A piece for the Boston Weekly Dig on vocational schools and how kids are being pressured into going to a traditional college instead of pursuing the time tested and honorable professions of the Work Trade ie. Mechanic, Electrician, Plumber etc. They wanted the look and feel to be like industrial revolution posters, propaganda style with punchy colors. Very proud and united.

This piece really makes sense on a personal level. I feel that I've learned more when I was in the work trade rather than in a academic setting. Granted you learn important theoretical stuff, but there are things out there that far exceeds what is the text-books and assignment briefs. I know that personally as the a fact. In that, I can't help feeling really enriched by this.

Nice piece. Love the painted style applied to a propaganda-type piece.

I like this. I go to a community college, myself, and the responses concerning my Associate's degree vary a lot. It's a technical program in New Media, so I'm learning a bunch of great stuff, but it sucks that a lot of people aren't considered a "professional" unless they have a Bachelor's. It's a little frustrating. The department head of my school said the industry I'm going into is all about your portfolio, but a lot of senior designers I've talked to stress the importance of a 4 year degree.

Well done. I can almost hear "The Hymn to Red October" in the background. :D
