A Heart-Warming Manhattan Story
I recently found this story on Candy Chang's wonderful blog. I gotta tell you, this sort of thing gives me hope for humanity!
"When graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister invited his friend Reini to visit him in New York City in 1988, his friend was concerned about his chances with the ladies. Would New York’s beautiful-but-tough women ignore him? In response, Sagmeister created a poster of his friend’s face under a bold black font declaring, 'Dear Girls! Please Be Nice to Reini' and plastered copies on walls throughout his Lower East Side neighborhood."
