More Man Than Machine

More Man Than Machine | Poster Design by M80 Design, Portland OR - Large

More Man than Machine is a poster based on emails Wes had sent himself and occasionally to friends between 2003-2012, the years after leaving graduate school and assimilating back into the regular workforce. He was eventually asked by Elliott Earls (2D Design instructor at Cranbrook) to turn the writings into a lecture for design students at Cranbrook Academy of Art in both 2010 and 2013.

The lecture questions the nature of our personal identity, insecurities, and failures. The poster is a message of hope for the artist and contains six insights from managing failures to slaying the creative dragons.
