The First Things First manifesto from 1964. Graphic designers advocating for a use of their trade that has more benefit to the social good.

"In common with an increasing number of the general public, we have reached a saturation point at which the high pitched scream of consumer selling is no more than sheer noise."

Popped into the local electronics shop for a battery, caught a successful fix in action. Old radio with a very simple fix, and a very happy punter. If I heard right, he said the radio was 20 years old. Good vibes! social.coop/media/3zIuExuaP2Ub
