HelpDeluxe 13.0, Darius Ou (2013)
Created by Darius Ou from Singapore, Adobo HelpDeluxe 13.0 is a satirical take on Graphic Design programs’ troubleshooting. This parody guidebook/zine is inspired by 90s aesthetics , a time period of the parodied company’s starting years. Adobo is a fictional company created to explore the possibilities of the parodied company in a different dimension , with the cheesy/tacky aesthetic style of the glorious 90s. It offers a refreshing take on the subject of digital piracy, troubleshooting , advertising, and self-help. The awkwardly positioned graphic elements as well as uncomfortable typography reflects on the ineffectiveness of most programs’ user manuals.
Contains real solutions as well as tongue-in-cheek advices. Includes fictitious advertisements and organisations. No infringements of any rights intended, created for non-profit / entertainment purposes only. (Crap = Good)
