Blanket Statements

A “blanket statement” is a generalization, a stereotype. A thoughtless assertion about an idea or a group of people. The Blanket Statements are literal blankets – but can be read in two very different ways. Designed at Mother Design, NY, for Mother Design, with Samantha Kim and Mark Sloan, words by Emily Sheehan & Claire Manganiello and photography/website design by Tian Wang & Teague Miller.
