“Moxie Sozo, the organizer of the 2005 Hurricane Poster Project, has teamed up with Josh Higgins, the organizer of the 2007 So-Cal Fire Project to produce the 2010 Haiti Poster Project.
The Haiti Poster Project seeks limited edition sets of posters from artists, designers and design firms from around the world. The donated posters will be sold online to raise money for Doctors Without Borders”
The posters go on sale April 5th. There are some beautiful posters there and it all goes to support an important cause. I am still hoping to have something to them by May as well. So stay tuned for that and in the meantime create your own poster and purchase one from your favorite artist (mine is Christopher David Ryan of Atmostheory).
W+K Studio (Weiden and Kennedy) have a special project going on to help raise money for Mercycorps to help with the Haitian relief effort titled ‘Hand Pulled for Haiti’. You can purchase the posters via the W+K Studio online store. There are some nice silkscreen posters up for purchase and the money goes to a good cause. Kudos to W+K for allowing their people to engage in participating in a project to make a difference. The more I learn about W+K, the more I think it must be a pretty cool place to work.
“THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT seeks limited edition sets of posters from artists, designers and design firms from around the world. The donated posters will be sold online to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. As designers, we have the collective ability to do what we love, AND to create a difference. THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT has been conceived as a collective effort by the design community to unite and effect change through our work. In order for this project to be successful, we are counting on designer participation. Our goal is to raise at least: $1,000,000 for Doctors Without Borders.”
They are currently seeking submissions. I will be working something up in the following weeks. Lets hope they can reach their goal.
