Going-Away Announcements

Retirement and going-away announcements are an underacknowledged folk-art form, characterized by incoherent design elements, maudlin sentiment, clip-art infestation, and nautical metaphors. For example, here is the flyer someone made for my friend Kristen’s imminent departure to Michigan (she is a reader and very occasional commenter on this blog).

While a good example of the genre, Kristen didn’t feel this went nearly far enough, so she asked our agency’s art director to come up with the definitive going-away flyer, which I’m placing in its own post.
