The Great Brainded India Posters

Non-sponsored. Non-recyclable. Nonsensical. Only pure propaganda.

The Indian version of the award-winning Brainded poster series. Brought to you by a completely Brainded team of international artists, thinkers and a writer after a recent India tour.

Brainded takes on India and the world around you. This collection of random thoughts from Appupen has been cleverly disguised as friendly advertising/propaganda posters, to gain easy access to the mainstream audience. Each juicy, bite-sized poster hopes to highlight and add to the chaos and absurdity of your agenda-driven existence, with fun colours and catchy concepts. 2016.
