Everyday people from all walks of life face and experience all sorts of stress and worries. For some a good night’s sleep is all it takes the counter these negative vibes and start each day with positivity. For others, it takes more than just 8 hours of sleep to get motivated and they usually need to actively voice out their mental notes and words of encouragement for themselves mostly in the morning in front of a mirror right before or after taking a shower.
If you’re that kind of person, you’ve probably said a lot of things to encourage yourself and you ended up not fulfilling most of them at the end of the day. Fortunately, there are many others like you in the world and one of them happens to be a graphic designer who puts these thoughts into typographic posters.
Everyone, meet Lauren Hom, a graphic designer and illustrator based in New York City and her awesome and interesting project entitled Daily Dishonesty. Hom earned a degree in advertising and graphic design in New York’s School of Visual arts where she honed her craft and learned several disciplines including silk screening, book binding and stamp carving.
During her spare time, Lauren admits her fondness of baking, sewing and typography. The latter was probably the source of inspiration for her Daily Dishonesty project – a collection of hand lettered posters that document the lies she tells herself on a regular basis.
At present, Hom works as freelance designer offering services for branding, custom lettering, typography and wedding invitation design. She has also received several awards for her work including a number of One Show Student awards from The One Club organization.
