Anyone who’s experienced the critique process will relate to the sentiments expressed in Stamps of Disapproval, a set of 12 rubber stamps created by RISD grad Heather K. Phillips. I especially love how the multiple phrases come together on the postcards shown below—so, so true. I certainly have heard (or said) all of those things many many times.
The stamps can be purchased, along with the accompanying postcards and other playfully academic objects, at Schooled.
I love these. Though I do wince at the resurrected memories of former professors …
I need to get me some of those…hahaha
In art school you learn that “Interesting” is the kiss of death.
I have one in my desk drawer that says “Translate into English.”
I think this set could use “Make it pop” and “Plus it up,” with a bonus of “Can we make it sexier?”
I wonder what Phillips’ professors would have to say about these.
Ah yes, I remember the “Are you happy with this?” well.
