So you DID continue to read FFFFound after I sent that link!
Anyway, I was thinking the same thing. At first, I thought it was one source but now I see it’s spreading … as if it’s an internet trend or something lol.
the other poster display trend I have noticed is to have it weighted down with bulldog clips. I understand that ‘pack shot’ photography often gives better results in a portfolio context that simple digital output, but this method is getting tedious.

Also, as you have been FFFFound before, there is a good change that this image will makes its way there soon … let’s hope.

it’s not always like that; sometimes a poster holds up a dude. I’m just sayin’.

Well, most designers are followers and everyone is a voyeur, hence, the trend.

i think it’s endearing to hold up your work and sort of hiding/standing behind it, proudly showing it off. being the mastermind of the poster, yes you also do figuratively speaking stand behind it.
though environment can sometimes get distracting, i think it’s more often than not add to the whole picture/presentation. it contributes to how the designer wants the presentation to feel/look like. also gives a bit of an overview to what the designer is like, and i think that’s very cool of them to share.

I am not sure what this person's gripe is about. I have seen (and used) that way to display posters mainly because it gives the viewer a sense of scale. I would be interested as to way this pisses him off besides the fact he is probably jealous that he can only print 8.5 x 11 printouts from his laptop. Out of all the design "trends" to call out, this is pretty weak.
