Pampling’s Need Memory

Need Memory by Gums succeeds by keeping things simple and to the point. The concept is relatable, because everyone has forgetful moments. The floppy disk is an especially good ambassador for the theme because it’s so recognizably obsolete, which communicates the idea that the era has passed him by and he’s not equipped for the modern world (also pretty relatable!). By keeping the disk’s cartoon features minimal, he reads as a genderless, ageless everyman sort of character, one of many. The cardboard sign looks convincingly hand scrawled at a glance (although making the e’s less identical would have improved it a bit). But overall, the design is smart in what details it does include- the angle of the shadow and a few implied bricks do an excellent job of giving a sense of environment for the piece.
