Haiti Poster

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Posters (Graphic Design) / 2011

This poster was designed for the Haiti Poster Project in aid of Doctors Without Borders. The overall goal was to reach a donation level of $1million through the sale of limited edition posters created by designers from around the world. Apart from the money donated, the aim was also to increase social awareness and to highlight the role design can play in conveying important messages. Harry Pearce describes his work as simply trying to capture the weight of the sadness: ‘A city as a body beneath a sheet. It’s still, silent and the plain facts say it all’.
