Meanwhile, High School High

You can’t beat an ultra-specific instagram account – one of my favourites is High School High, Veronica Kraus’ collection/curation/whathaveyou of old high school yearbooks. Borne out of printing constraints, budgets, experimentation and good old-fashioned playfulness, there’s a wild charm to these designs. The naiveté-gusto of 1970s high school year book committee kids is a design force to be reckoned with; just pure unfiltered, unsullied teenage creativity. Grids be damned, this stuff is always a refreshing kick up the bum if you’re stuck on a job. A few highlights:

One more thing … For the price of a fairly decent coffee, you can support Meanwhile with a paid subscription. Patronage is massively appreciated, and helps keep the lights on, fires burning, etc. The regular weekly newsletter will always be free, but I’m planning on launching special member-only editions in the new year.
