Note:
The fliers that are shown below were designed in
October 2012, early in the Occupy Movement.
This commentary was written in May 2012,
the spring after the Occupy Movement began.

In the first weeks of Occupy I did not like the flyers on the internet.  Those were very intricate arrangements of ink, crammed much fuller than the eye can take in, like you want people to stand still and examine them, really like posters or even like full-page magazine adverts.

Here in Worcester we needed flyers to be understood through the window of a moving car, by the car's driver, as they carefully negotiate a street congested by two hundred marching pedestrians, while distracted by waving signs, extremely loud drums and chanted shouts.  You understand, the flyer is held up outside the car window by a person who politely asks if they would like to have one.

Also, the designs should not suck up all the ink in your home computer printer when you have to run last minute copies there.  That gets expensive.

Take a look.  Change "Occupy Worcester" at the bottom to yours.  Leave the back side blank so light shining through won't hurt.  Make them all pages in one document so you can tell the copy shop "Give me X copies of the whole file."  That also gives a virtual random order when you hand them out which is a sort of mathematical blessing.

And a few more tips:

And also, do be courteous.  People deserve your respect.  They deserve your love too of course, but naturally it takes a saint to give that very openly.
