People from all walks of life face and experience all sorts of stress and worries every day. 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 8 hours of sleep to get motivated. They usually need to actively voice out their mental notes and words of encouragement for themselves, mainly 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 many things to encourage yourself and 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.
Meet Lauren Hom, a graphic designer and illustrator based in New York City, and her excellent and exciting project entitled Daily Dishonesty. Hom earned a degree in advertising and graphic design from New York’s School of Visual arts, where she honed her craft and learned several disciplines, including silk screening, bookbinding, and stamp carving.
Lauren admits her fondness for baking, sewing, and typography during her spare time. The latter was probably the source of inspiration for her Daily Dishonesty project – a collection of hand-lettered posters that regularly document the lies she tells herself.
Hom is a freelance designer offering branding, custom lettering, typography, and wedding invitation design services. She has also received several awards for her work, including One Show Student awards from The One Club organization.
