I was sent some images last week from the London exhibition at the Gallery in Cork Street of the work created for the Designers Against Tibetan Abuse book. I found a nice image of a man staring down the piece I created for the book.You can see images from both DATA shows here and here. Thank you to all of the contributors and to DATA as well.
Since starting the program for DATA/Designers Against Human Rights Abuse, the group has created another publication entitled 3 Minutes. The premise of the book is to show the full extent of the Tibetan conflict through 10 diverse and extremely powerful 3-minute interviews, each describing the 3 minutes that changed their lives. ‘Contributors were asked to translate these minute interviews into 16 printed page booklets using primarily typography. The result is a book made up of 10 beautifully designed booklets from some of the world’s best designers showcasing considered and stunning typography.’
The London exhibition sold out and raised £5,000 for charity (personally, I wish it had been more). It was a great idea and I hope the founders continue on and keep moving the cause forward with more projects and exhibitions to continue to raise money. You can read more about DATA/DAHRA here.
