IH8War! Where are the visual provocateurs of today?
Let's engage in an anti-war movement of graphic designers and illustrators that will gain the attention of the worldwide major media who will support the brand new campaign with free space in print, subway posters, blogs and other social media as well as potential exhibits and books!
Charles Hively & Sarah Munt, keynote-speakers of this year's Joseph Binder Symposium created this open call to all artists, illustrators, graphic designers and art directors from all countries. Students are encouraged to participate as well.
Read their presentation.
We are accepting images and poster designs centered around today’s current events related to war.
Our hope is to build a library of striking images that will find a place in front of a mass audience. To start we will devote the back cover of Creative Quarterly to this campaign. In addition we will be seeking pro-bono advertising space in leading national and international magazines and newspapers. If all goes well, we will use other means to keep this initiative alive in as many venues as possible including potential exhibits and books. All artists and designers will receive a credit line on any published items. The artist retains full copyright of their images. Should we get to the point of selling posters, each artist will receive compensation.
Go for it!
