Walk This Way by Vaughan Oliver
British designer Vaughan Oliver is renowned for his beautiful cover art for bands like Pixies and Cocteau Twins, artists who did things in an alternative way. His glorious poster, created with photographer Marc Atkins, inspires us to choose an alternative way of traveling.
“I like walking,” said Vaughan. “You experience more of the world. The signpost gives us clear ethical directions as opposed to geographic directions. I like that. A message sweetened with humour.”
Walking makes us feel a million dollars without costing us a penny. It’s great for lifting our spirits, helping us focus, boosting our concentration, unlocking our creativity and letting the big ideas at the back of our brains swim to the surface. But the best thing of all? When we walk we leave no carbon footprint whatsoever.
At 107 beats per minute, Aerosmith’s sassy, seventies hit ‘Walk This Way’ is the perfect pacemaker for a gentle stroll. If you’re in a hurry, push the tempo up and stride along to some house music instead.
