Housing Adventures in SF

>> See the full poster Even if you don’t live in San Francisco, you’ve heard how horrible the housing situation is. I’m assuming most rational people would take this as an indication that it’s probably a bad time to move here, but I didn’t. I mean, San Francisco is officially the one of the most

So I took these posters I made out of my portfolio section because I thought some of my more recent work was more worthy of display. However, I just can’t seem to shake how much I like these posters. So, since they can’t be in my portfolio, they will now live on my blog. Anyone

In fact it’s one of only a few design topics I have covered (because I don’t write here that much, not because there aren’t a lot of important design topics).
