Graffititherapy

Paprika, Montreal, Quebec, 2008

Description

This book was created as a gift for the 2008 holidays, offered to Paprika’s clients and friends.

Walls may have ears but it’s the face of the building that has the last word. Graffiti artists use walls and faces and other empty spaces to make a statement, to speak up and cry out against, to insult and to seduce, to lay claim to what is rightfully theirs, to set the tone and make their case. Graffiti brings them relief like a primal scream. This book will free the graffiti artist in everyone. Draw out your gut reactions when on the phone, when in meetings or while shopping, on the bus, at the beach or when you’re reaching to turn out the light at night. Scribble or doodle down the thoughts that come to you in a flash without too much contemplation.

Juror Notes

A wonderful promotional book with attention to detail and material. The hidden pen inviting the user to “graffiti” the book as a notebook is inspiring. The spray—painted “graffiti” covers give the book life.

Tactile and inviting, these books draw you in. The spray-painted flocking prepares you for the contents within. The interactive addition of the pen in the spine is an added surprise and also supports this object as a multi—use product.

Hand me the krink! Makes me want to tag everything. Love it. The pen is a great touch. Riveting typography and messaging; draws in the viewer/reader and is tough to put down, even after you’ve worked the whole way through.
