Public Conversation Starters

Introduction: Public Conversation Starters

About: Hi, I'm George Zisiadis. I'm a San Francisco based artist and designer. My unique projects playfully re-imagine people’s relationships to their environments and to themselves. When not creating, I do freelan…

"Public Prompts" are inspiring public conversation starters. They're meant to help break the ice with the stranger next to you when you’re riding public transit.

I created the design using Adobe Illustrator and with the help of my friend Ben Hanna. I laid out a 2x4 grid of prompts. Each one is about 2x as big as a business card. I put a different funny question in each prompt for a total of 8 unique prompts per sheet. 

Next, I printed a few sheets, cut them into individual prompts, got some gluestick, and started sticking them onto public transit seats. 

Definitely experiment with the visual design and questions!
