Little White Lies …artfully told.

Posted in Style & Travel

Daily Dishonesty
My Daily Dishonesty

Graphic designer and Texty-Illustrator Lauren Hom takes the lovely little lies we tell ourselves every day and turns them into art.  She calls them her ‘Daily Dishonesty’ and makes sweet posters through her clever use of colour and fonts. They made me smile – I have told myself at least half of them.

Lauren also conducted a witty survey among class mates, friends, family and aquaintances – asking them:  “What would you say to the last person who broke your heart?”  And then documented the snappy one-liners she got in return in a series of greeting cards she sells through her website Hom from Hom.

The responses range from happy to sad, angry through resigned. And best of all – they sound like real voices. A brilliant way of looking at closing that final conversation: whoever it may be with.  As Lauren says” Keep in mind that boyfriends and girlfriends aren’t the only ones capable of breaking hearts; we have intimate relationships with parents, friends, and siblings too.”

We love her work and can’t wait to see what she does next. Meantime we’ll be framing our favourite Daily Dishonesty(s) and keeping them at eye-level in our offices.  Maybe they’ll help keep us honest … or maybe they’ll remind us that life is too short to skip dessert.

The Daily Dishonesty posters can be purchased from Lauren’s Society6 shop, and she will mail them to you wherever you are in the world.

    My favourite is “I can’t be with you but…”. To me this is THE LIE par excellence

  2. These are awesome! I’ve definitely felt the ‘thank you for showing me I deserve better” before.

    And seriously, my diet DOES start tomorrow…and I’ll be proving it by ordering just the salad of course. 🙂

  3. “Shopping counts as cardio” just landed on my doorstep and it’s going on my office wall! No, this is not a sponsored post. I just liked them so much I had to have one!
