Funny Posters Feature Objects with Surprising Personality

These playful graphic prints by graphic designer, filmmaker and artist Safwat Saleem are quite entertaining. Coupled is a series that features relationships between two inanimate objects or cartoons that are interacting with each other in very unexpected ways. The two-color designs incorporate simple silhouettes paired with clever captions that give surprising meaning to each scene. Through just a few simple words, Saleem gives personality to the otherwise non-speaking, sedentary things.

A fish says “Must…Resist…” as he lingers too close to a fishhook, a sun “LOL”s as a snowman melts below, and a friendly ghost chases Pac-Man, saying “Hang on, I just want to talk.” According to Saleem’s project statement, “These prints were made for a love-themed exhibit that opened in February 2013 at the 6th Avenue Gallery in downtown Phoenix.” Most of the moments will make you chuckle while some of them will have you feeling sympathy for the lonely objects.
