Maxims 4 Mavericks (M4M) creates meaningful, eye-catching art with a thought-provoking message. We work with companies, organizations, teams, families, and more to deliver custom images that uniquely embodies and reflects the goals, values, and vision of each client we work with. To accomplish this, M4M founder, Kent Healy works directly with clients through a process of interviewing and observing (with possible in-person site visits) to articulate, in visual terms, what the organization/team/family stands for and what may inspire them. M4M also licenses existing art. Read what others have to say about Kent and M4M.
In addition to the many services we offer, we have a blog that Kent uses to share new pop-art images with the world every few days. You can subscribe for free here. Keep in mind, nearly every pop-art image is available for purchase.
What is a maxim?
An expression of a general truth, a principle, or a rule of conduct.
What is a Maverick?
An individual independent in thought and action. The term itself is birthed from a real person by the name of Samuel Maverick. Read his intriguing and inspirational story here.
Kent refers to M4M pop-art as “Wall Compasses” because they serve as daily guideposts, reminding everyone who looks at them what the grand objectives are and the best path to get there.
Mission statements are important, but they are also quickly forgotten. Team members or family members benefit greatly from frequently witnessing totems, guideposts, or “Wall Compasses” in their daily environment. In the time it takes to glance at an image, people are reminded of what matters most: Culture – the omnipresent goals, values, and vision of the company, organization, team, or family.
- Images give the viewer enough information to underscore a concept, without pigeon holing it. Images are suggestive, but the viewer is able to take the message or lesson he or she most needs to hear — a message may be different for each person.
- Most of us don’t have time to read long blog posts but we still crave mental stimulation. In a few seconds, an image can accomplish the same or more than a 1,000 word article.
- Images are remembered for a lifetime, the same can’t be said about the written content we consume.
- Images are fun, easy to share, and encourage thought-provoking discussions.
What we offer:
Depending on the goals of the organization, each pop-art image can take many forms:
