The world of work can be a minefield. What’s the acceptable number of kisses on a professional email? How many of your workmates are you obliged to make tea for at any given time? When do I have to wear trousers? Luckily though Sausalito-based ad agency Division of Labor are riding to their rescue with their series of, um, alternative advisory maxims. At first they used to hang the posters in the windows of their offices but now they have collected some of the best together in a handy little tome with the blunt but brilliant title Stop Tweeting Boring Sh*t.
It’s the latest in a series of fun personal projects that Division of Labor founders Paul Hirsch and Josh Denberg have embarked on, and the duo’s modest ambition for the book is for it to be “on every office desk in the country and in every lobby in corporate America.” I hope they succeed.
Stop Tweeting Boring Sh*t published by Chronicle Books is out now.
