Libraries Are For Everyone: Epic Templates

Okay, so in a previous post I mentioned emailing me for blank templates. I received a request within a few minutes of publishing the post, and that’s when I realized that there was a better way: share the templates here!

Feel free to use the free font that I used, or use your library’s preferred font – it’s all good.

Have fun!!!!!

And yes, just like all of my other work on this here blog: YOU CAN USE, MODIFY, REMIX, AND EVEN USE MY ART FOR FUNDRAISING.

And also, just like on all of my minimalist work: YOU SHOULD NOT PUT MY NAME OR BUSINESS NAME ON IT.

If your art/marketing department or local printer needs written permission from me, then send me an email at hafuboti@gmail.com.

Welcoming Diversity

The lovely Lucila Lontajo, a Library Technician at Westwood Collegiate in Winnipeg, Manitoba, sent me a kind request for a variation on my Libraries Are For Everyone signs: please make a set of Welcome signs.

BLAMMO! So mote it be.

If you’re interested in adding languages from your community, then check out this post that contains templates. Whether in Word, Publisher, Canva, or any other photo editor – you should be able to add the text on top of the image using whatever color(s) you’d like.

Thank you, Lucila, for providing me with all of these translations – especially the ones from First Nations!!!

Just like all of my art on this blog, it is free for you to use, share, modify, remix, etc. PLUS, with my minimalist work, I ask that you do NOT put my name on it (either my legal or business name). Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this (or anything else) at hafuboti@gmail.com.

Libraries Are For Everyone: Epic Rainbow

The fabulous Michele from MiraCosta College in California requested an adjustment to some of my Truly Epic images in several languages. I am so grateful that I said yes because I figured out some sizing/resolution issues that need fixing. I’m happy that I figured it out, but now I need to go back through all of my signs/postings and fix them. It’s about as fun as you would imagine.

Now, without further ado – some colorfully epic versions of various languages:

A NOTE: I am slowly working on getting my artwork uploaded onto the Wikimedia Commons for people to find it easier all the while making all of it “officially” licensed. That said – my entire blog here is under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share Alike license – so know that I both want and encourage everyone to download, share, modify, and have fun with my work!

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and elegance. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you crediting it to “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously. Have fun.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).

Archives Are For All

On Twitter @VasiliatheWise asked if I would be so kind as to make a set of my Libraries Are For Everyone for all of the archivists out there – and she gave me the wording: Archives Are For All! 
So these go out to all those library archivists who maintain and preserve our histories, stories, and more!
