A good buddy of mine was living a spartan lifestyle in college. We all kind of poked fun at the fact that in his one bedroom apartment, you couldn’t find most of the things a normal college kid would have. The only furniture he had was a bed, a table, an ironing board, and an Eames lounge chair he’d bought second hand from a professor. The fellas and I would jest at how it’d be impossible for him to get a girl to spend any time in his apartment, since it looked like he was squatting. He told us he didn’t need all that other shit. He said everyone’s running around buying all this shit, but what they really needed to do was, “Get Less Shit.”

Thus, a catchphrase was born, and the aesthetic and design philosophy known by most as Minimalism, was remixed for our generation. I screen printed a small batch of these on ironically huge paper and gave most away to friends who had a problem accumulating dumb shit. You can now get a high quality digital print here, though they don’t sell too well because people instantly take the message to heart. Yeah, kind of shot myself in the foot on that one.
