The Idea

I love life hacks. Correction: I am obsessed with life hacks. Every single day I read tips and tricks to help save time and/or money, work smarter, sleep easier and have a better life. The problem is, I would enjoy reading it all but would often forget to actually implement my favorite hacks into my life.

That's why I had the idea to create Life Hack Posters. I'm a very visual person and rely on graphic reminders (like sticky notes, whiteboards, etc.) to remind me to do things. I want to create exceptionally designed posters illustrating different life hacks for people to display in their homes, offices and businesses. They'll look superb, make for great conversation starters and help you assimilate life hacks into your life. They're also a perfect gift for other life hackers you know

The Posters

There are currently two Life Hack Posters which I have researched, written and sketched, as well as worked with graphic designers to bring them to life so I can show them to you now.

The first poster is for your bathroom and uses the universally recognized male and female bathroom sign figures as characters demonstrating the life hacks. Each of these hacks has been thoroughly tested and carefully illustrated to make this eye-catching print for your bathroom wall. With each visit to your bathroom, your guests will learn something new and you can assimilate these smart bathroom tips into your life.

The poster also shows exercises you can do while brushing your teeth (this was the life hack that first triggered my idea to create a poster - I wanted this in my bathroom so I would remember to do these exercises!) The poster also illustrates a web of bathroom uses for baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice and petroleum jelly and how they all link together. Learn what these simple household substances can do, and ditch all the single-use products stashed in your bathroom cabinets for simpler alternatives.

The second poster is for your bedroom and is entitled 'How To Fall Asleep'. Thoroughly researched, intricately organized and artfully presented, this print is a beautiful addition to your bedroom decor. You can rest easy with this visual reminder of everything you need to get more quality sleep at night.

Preparing for a good night's sleep doesn't start at night, which is why the poster begins with key tips to keep in mind throughout your day for a peaceful slumber later on. In the daytime section, the sun rises to show the most common disruptions of sleep you need to be aware of. 

The next section descends into the darkness of the night and details what you need to know at bedtime. It is divided into two parts: what to do (and what not to do) just before you go to bed and how to construct the ideal environment for a good night's sleep. Also in this nighttime section, the moon suggests food and drink items proven to aid sleep. 

And for those nights you lay awake waiting for your brain to shut off, the poster closes with six proven methods to bring about sleep faster.

Quality Printing and Framing

The posters are printed on 18 x 24" museum-quality paper that is thick, durable and archival (acid-free). Printed on an Epson Stylus Pro 7900 using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology, each poster is hand-printed and handled to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed and au-naturel. 

If you choose the framing option, the frames are lightweight, optically pure and come with a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector - so they ship safely and securely.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges for this project are very small. The designs and printer are ready so it's just a matter of seeing how many people want a poster!

I would welcome ideas and suggestions from the creative Kickstarter community. Anybody passionate about this project is invited to get involved. I believe these posters can improve people's daily lives in a simple way. With your help, I can get this out into the world. I'm excited to create something new, and hope you will join the ride!
