Activist Calls For Protest Against Legible Flyers
Activist Raymond Rivers yesterday kicked off a three-day protest against flyers that make sense. According to Rivers, clean fonts and limited graphics are useless for conveying messages to the public.
“A crowded flyer full of unrelated images cut from multiple sources and pasted at random until the page is totally covered is the best way to send the message,” said Rivers. “It’s like the ransom notes in the movies, everybody always understands what the kidnapper wants.”
Asked what the message of his current flyer is, he said “it should be obvious.” In answer to a follow-up question about why the protest is three days long, he agreed that it seemed a little lengthy, but that it had taken him longer than that to copy and paste all the images to the flyer.
