“I promise I won’t tag you” and other tongue-in-cheek posters

Justin Barber’s collection of posters Truth and Lies are of the ‘No tell me what you’re really thinking’ variety. The tongue-in-cheek minimalist posters illustrate every day (white) lies we tell, accompanied by what we really mean.

In his own words, Justin says:

This humorous poster series takes some of the most common, everyday lies we tell ourselves and hear from others, and bluntly translates them into the unequivocal truth. By visually representing the difference in what we often say but secretly mean, Truth and Lies uncovers the inane conversational nuances that reveal paradoxical dichotomies in our otherwise ordinary life. In other words, this is what you say, but (this is what you mean) – and we all know it.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

We’ve selected a few of our absolute favourites, but be sure to check out the entire collection over at Justin’s Behance profile.
