This poster was designed by Steve Bond and Dean Owens for the purpose of inspiring content for their magazine POST.

It's a view of life summed up by the expression on Steve's wonderful friend Mabel's face, who should contribute her own advice to the project as soon as possible. For me it means that a day in thought is a day owned; thought leads to action; action leads to control, not over anything in particular, but some control over what comes next and that coming from you. Your input is vital: in collaboration, in everyday matters, in relation to others and to yourself.

So I wanted to put it up here as:

1) I have come to realise that it is a credo my friends live by and I'm delighted they let me turn it into an advice poster.

2) Because it is becoming my credo too and am proud to share it with such wonderful people. I hope I can live up to their example.

My good friend Simon came to stay recently and left this customised version of his poster.

Needless to say, I treasure it.

Ju - who for the past year, has helped guide the advice posters and the new postcard pack to the press in the most patient, enthusiastic and expert way - has designed a new poster for the project (detail below).

The design comes from his doodle pad which sat on his desk for the duration of the POST 3 job. See the full version here.

Just got back from helping personalise the 1000 issues of POST. Each issue is hand-numbered and contains two advice to sink in slowly postcards inside an envelope stamped with the POST logo. 

Just realised I didn't take any photos of inside the mag, will remedy that tomorrow. Congratulations guys!

POST is a new journal enabling students on the MA courses at University College Falmouth to see what is going on on the other MAs.

I've been really lucky to watch Dean, Jon and Steve bring this thing together. Their passion, expertise and attention to detail, has created an inspiring first issue and an ongoing concept that's going to last.

The magazine launch is this Thursday, at Woodlane Library. I hope I can convince them to 'post' on the project. There is a strong advice to sink in slowly connection so more POST news to come ...
