CBD poetry: So pink!

I was wandering the lanes up around Lonsdale and William Streets in Melbourne last week when I came across these very pink poetry posters stuck up alongside the usual promos for festivals and clothing brands &c.

Turns out they’re the work of a Melbourne design company called ERD Communications. Nice work, ERDers! It would be great to think that these are the first in a series. You can click on each image for a (vaguely blurry – apologies for my crap phone camera) closeup.

erd heart Melbourne poem poster - So I drift off down an alley called AC/DC Lane. Bon Scott's ghost is slient - Ezra Bixerd heart Melbourne - Melbourne you are our work in progress - Steve Smarterd heart Melbourne - We Were Made for Each Othererd heart Melbourne - we are ordinary poems made great by our collection in the everyday space

Vetti: Live in Northcote (I never know if that means “I live” or “coming to you live from”) spotted some too – they seem to have good coverage of the CBD at the moment. Not sure how long it’ll be before they’re covered up by ads for Wrangler or the new Beasties album, so if you like your poetry in the wild, I’d be heading to postcode three thousand fairly soon.

  1. hi Adam! Thanks for the link! It’s Live as in “coming to you live from Northcote” but I do get plenty of people asking the same question you did…
