Walking around the revitalized inner city areas of any metropolis will have you find a wealth of
uninhibited, free and easy, undisguised, spontaneous street graphics.
Often created by non-professional visual communicators, they are more effective than the unending volume of
slick, massaged graphic devices and communication that are pumped out by anyone with a desktop/laptop.
These examples were found just outside the old Gladstone Hotel, which is located on the Chippendale end of Regent Street.
The hotel is undergoing renovations and someone has decided to bring the new energy of
the transformation out to the front as a call for attention.
Well it worked, as I have always picked up my pace when walking pass,
what I imagined was a truly dodgy pub.
Now I slow down a peer inside to see what interesting, brave changes they are implementing within.
The power of graphics, raw or refined, if they are authentic, they are heard.
