Grandmother Tips

A wicked collection of typography posters from Chacho Puebla a designer in Madrid.  Here it is in his own words describing the project…

For a long time I´ve been wanting to do something with one of my sisters, my great-aunt and typography.
Not all together, but it just turned out that way.

 As my son gets older and I get more grey hair, I wonder what kind of advice will I give to my grandkids.
My three grandmothers where always giving me sermons instead of tips. “Be carfeul with your money”. “Don´get invloved with that girl”, “Save”, “Get a haircut, you look like a hippie”, and all those classic parent, grandparent comments.

When you´re younger you think you´ll never fall into that same kind of discourse, until you find yourself talking about stupid (cliché) stuff with your kid, about how important school is and if you don´t have a degree you´re nobody. I hope I can give better advice some day. In the meantime, here are some tips my grandmother should have given me.
