standing boldly in new york agency contently’s office, are the words ‘those who tell stories rule the world’ designed by american will pay. the brief was to paint a quote in the common area, something that would reflect the business and their attitude, and after collaborating together the famous native american proverb was decided. in order to maximize the approximately 11′ x 11′ square wall, will pay broke the quote into separate lines. the final sketch was drawn on a custom grid paper where each square is one inch, six inches cubed made for a thicker line in order to have half foot marks – making it easier for the image to be scaled up to the necessary size. using a blue lead pencil and blue transfer paper the words ‘those who tell the stories rule the world, native american proverb’ was inscribed. working with paint markers to get solid crisp edges, an opaque primmer was applied instead of white paint, giving a flat bright white light that really ‘pops’ off the wall.
