Little Devil by Paula Scher
Pentagram’s Paula Scher can see the satanic side of our overplugged lives. She chose the idiom of a 1940s civil action poster to inspire us to overcome our electricity demons and plug out.
Paula was attracted by the simplicity of the action: “I chose this subject matter because it is such an easy task to accomplish and plugs have horns.”
The average American household has about 40 appliances that are always plugged in and powered up. And 10% of that electricity is wasted on vampire power – the power sucked up by appliances on standby. Here are the five most evil offenders you can fight without garlic.
Stick these far-from-devilish decals on your sockets to create amusing characters that you’ll only see when your appliances are unplugged.
