Lisa Maltby, a designer based in Sheffield, has been working in the creative industry for over 10 years. Understanding she has received her fair share of criticism from both acquaintances and other creative professionals.
Lisa states on her website: “It can be quite a challenge to push your work as a freelance creative when it is subject to so much opinion and scrutiny–it’s often hard not to take comments personally.”
This inspired Lisa to collate these condescending comments and turn them into fun and defiant typographic art.
She uses a variety of mediums to match the different kinds of offensive comments she received over the years, including cross-stitching, hand-drawn illustrations and collages.
