'Liberate' Mideast Poster
Echoes 'Silence = Death' Design

Sometimes in history, graphic designers capture the mood of the people desiring change and empowerment with carefully created, stark poster images that advance revolutionary thinking and action . . .

. . . a black background, a few incredibly crucial words in white lettering and a splash of red or pink to grab the eye with simplicity . . .

. . . and my activist heart beats with pleasure, knowing both images contain the life-affirming desires of many people.
