IT’S TIME TO GET ORANGE, LONG HAUL TRUCKERS: Starting right now, we’re taking orders for that poster, so click here to get it going.

OUR PITCH: “I’ve wanted to make a so-called “career-spanning” poster for some time now, showing every little logo, wordmark and whatever else I could fit into it. It’s been on the project list going on four years now. And each year, the jobs would starting lining up and I’d say, “Oh shit, just wait a month, and you can put this/that into it…” And the years went by. So yeah, with my so-called art show at Office coming up fast, the time was now. So I started going through the files. And I mean EVERYTHING, all the way back to the dawn of the DDC back in 1993. So gross. And that’s what you get: A poster called “Pretty Much Everything Up To May 27th, 2009.”

MORE PITCH: Act now. Going fast, Kinda limited edition. Let’s set a record. All proceeds go to the DDC and all shady subsidiaries. Ink on paper. Easy instructions. Free poster tube. A fair price for years and years of blood, sweat and tears. Lots of Futura Bold. Lots of DDC crap. Client stuff, too. Thick ink on durable paper. Very orange. Hard to miss. Built to outlast all of us. Smells good. You need one of these.

Are you lost? You can also click here, and it’ll take you to the same spot above.

If you want proof of the sweat that went into this thing, find the section called, “SOME SCENES FROM THE PRESSCHECK” in this post right here, and get dirty with us.

Many, many thanks to all who’ve written in. Now it’s time to act. We’re ready to start putting posters into tubes and right out the door. Put us to work. Let’s get orange, people. Thanks.

CAN’T REMEMBER MY LAST HANGOVER, AND THAT’S A GOOD THING: I don’t drink too much, so, the whole “hangover thing” is something I can count on one hand. Rough mornings. Yuck. Here’s a cool, little owl from a campaign that was meant to reach yer aunts and uncles back in the day. (Sent in by a rather festive Kent Hernandez of North America. We love you.)
