“All printed materials are shiny artifacts of past. Printed posters had lost its function to announce. Everybody gets all information about anything so fast via social media now, and it changes our perception about function and form. And It unexpectedly transforms the printed posters to the more valuable, fancy consumer products without function. The printed poster getting close to art, even if it is or not, and this increase the value of it substantially. But unfortunately it is not an absolute necessity anymore.”
