Memorial Drawing & QR code



I drew these two pictures for the shrine, one is white and another one is black.

Below is the cover of the sign book which is for people to write down their words for landline telephone. I prepare an A5 size landscape form book as sign book.



Last but not least, this is our QR code which is for people taking photos to memorize landline telephone. This link will have a visual summery of photos if people hashtag #futureobsolete.

Some interesting ad posters

There are some ad posters I found from this website (

These ads are about the selling vintage telephone(landline). And I’ll print them as post cards for the exhibition.

I got one more, in Polish (we don’t really have any funeral cards, so that’s the closest thing). I also did fronts to the other cards I’ve poster before.

In Memoriam: the Future Obsolete – A Shrine to the Landline Telephone (Revised Summary)

Design is the past, the present and the future and is integrated into everything that surrounds us. In our lifetime we have experienced once familiar objects become obsolete, rendered replaceable by technological advances. As an opportunity to consider the creation of a visual narrative that explores the provenance of the ‘future obsolete’, we have selected the iconic landline telephone as a much-loved, significant object destined to become a thing of the past.
Inspired by celebrity shrines, we propose to create a memorial to an icon that captures moments in history, its portrayal in popular culture and personal statements on its significance in everyday life.

(thinking of printing this as a newspaper article itself. and several more that i have found)

I’ve worked on a few more rough sketches and also some pop art kind of stuff that I’ve been working on just to add some colour (the first 4 images.)

Hello all,

I’m sorry I didn’t post anything yesterday, but I came home very late and I thought it will be better to post more things than making separate posts.

I did four cards and also I found pictures we could use from the archives. I also found the pink-up girls images with the telephone (I like how the dog picture is similar in pose to the pin-up girl above). I think it could be an interesting twist to add some humor. I also got two wooden frames we can use. And I got some home catalogs and cut out small ads for telephones. Here is what I’ve got.
