Newly unemployed graphic designer Irina Blok decided it was time to laugh about our troubles and in doing so, birthed the idea for her ‘Funemployment’ Collection.

There is an old saying that says, “If you don’t laugh, you cry,” and this sentiment has never been more true with the economic crisis that has been emptying our wallets.

Irina Blok’s collection features pins that will lighten your spirits for a mere $2. Who wouldn’t want a pin that says, “Unemployed and overcaffeinated?” Or “I buy caviar with food stamps”?

Blok will even put your resume on a t-shirt for you so you are a walking billboard for your own employment.
