Civility is not a Sign of Weakness Poster
"Civility is not a sign of weakness" is our company's motto. Taken from John F. Kennedy's inaugural speech it captures, for us, the essence of civility -- that being kind, respectful, dignified and thoughtfully-restrained stems from confident strength and character rather than from a deficit in backbone.
We commissioned Hammerpress of Kansas City (designers we've long-admired whose portfolio includes staggeringly complex and beautiful posters for a who's who of artists from Belle and Sebastian to Sufjan Stevens to Elvis Costello) to take our motto and give it its own rock star treatment.
