Breaking Bad’s Walter White | Print Magazine

The Role of Mediocrity in Graphic Design – Great to illustrate everyone’s favourite meth dealer, Heisenberg! The partnered article by Steven Heller mentions how Walter Jr’s poster featured in the TV show, “… wasn’t great. It was just, well, ordinary – and that is the definition of mediocre.”
