Just over ten years ago, Brian and Jason, two grad students trying to grab their students’ attention, got together over two cups of coffee and six cheap beers to make basic design principles impossible to forget. Within days, after no promotion and only sharing the site with a few friends, their profanity laden, text-based website had received over 70,000 visits. Only weeks later, that number rose into the millions, and a small army of new fans were demanding merchandise – with that Good Fucking Design Advice (GFDA) was born.
Without hesitation, or adequate forethought, the duo leapt into a series of disasters that nearly cost them their sanity and financial stability. In spite of their mistakes and against all odds, however, a fucking business was born. Now an international design collective, their mission is to become the voice in your head you just cant ignore.
