Motivational office posters are notoriously lame: if "carpe diem!" were even possible, you certainly wouldn't be wearing a tie, and you certainly wouldn't be at work, and you certainly wouldn't be wearing pants. Get inspired by the master of motivation -- Mao Tse-tung! -- with paintings from Maopost.
Hatched by two longtime Maoist poster collectors, Maopost puts the "rad" in "comrade" by commissioning Chinese painters to insert your likeness into an oil of an otherwise faithfully recreated propaganda poster -- stirring imagery that inspired hundreds of millions to believe anything was possible, even riding a bike to work. Browse their online collection of 1600+ posters, loosely categorized by subject (civic duties, military, peasants), then send over a photo of your head angled after your socialist hero of choice; Maopost will send you back a quick mock-up for approval, and within 2-3 weeks, your painting will arrive, ready to be slapped up on your cubicle, then nervously explained to the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Options range from bellicose, bayonet-wielding soldiers to joyful steel workers and affable peasant-farmers hauling & harvesting grain, their AK-47s only just peeking into the corner of the frame -- an uplifting reminder that even the lowest rung on the socioeconomic ladder has the power to make a difference.
For the right price, Maopost will insert multiple faces into appropriate posters, perfect for you and your friends, family, or co-workers -- because while there's no "i" in "team", there is an "i" in "inevitably, the masses will rise up in violent and bloody revolution!".
