Famous proverbs retold as graphic design puns

Proverbs, also referred to as sayings, give us some form of life advice. Every language and culture has them, and its important not to miss any of the words because the meaning can easily get lost.

However, Manchester-based graphic designer Madrigal Creative has created an amusing series that takes well-known, famous proverbs and combines them with graphic design puns. For example, “Better safe than sorry” becomes “Better SAVE than sorry.”

It’s easiest to learn from the experiences of others instead of going through things yourself—especially when it comes to design. Scroll down to view the full series and have a laugh or take a look at things you shouldn’t say to a designer.
