Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Banksy tends to be overrun by his own self-developing brand

Banksy’s name has clearly grown beyond the real person. I wonder how many copycats he has, or when some big corporation will eventually sell Banksy-related stuff (I bet Banksy himself has been offered this kind of deal already).

This stencil however manages to say it all (I still remember the cover on Adbusters, one of my early contacts with “guerrilla” art):

I love this. So much. I added a little color to the flowers, but otherwise this is my new background. I love Banksy, and this is an interesting view of him and his work. Thank you!

The original one, Banksy’s ‘Flower chucker‘, also had coloured flowers. Glad you liked it, thanks for visiting Gretchen.
