Humor and graphic design
I picked up some good ideas from these pieces on writing humor. Humor and graphic design? Absolutely.
I think we shouldn't shy away from the possibility of using humor, comedy, jokes, cartoons and such, to communicate idea. They are, afterall, well understood ways of seeing, understanding, and relating to ideas. Plus they offer the potential for producing something that is refreshing and out of the ordinary.
"Graphic design is the paradise of individuality, eccentricity, heresy, abnormality, hobbies and humors." George Santayana
