Great Design to Combat Climate Change
The Green Patriot Poster exhibition opens August 8, 2014 at Wieden & Kennedy. The exhibition displays beautifully designed posters created to raise awareness and support the battle against global climate change.
In support of this green initiative, Premier Press reproduced the artwork using sustainable UV voc free print direct-to- board, a recycled/recyclable material.
The posters’ environmental messages were inspired by the iconic style of WWII propaganda posters created by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. The government agency alleviated unemployment by hiring 8.5 million craftsmen for public works projects with the motto, “Give a man a dole, and you save his body and destroy his spirit. Give him a job and you save both body and spirit.”
In the same spirit, the Green Patriot Poster project communicates the call to make behavioral changes to help save our environment through graphics. The Design Museum Portland stages public exhibitions, events and programs to show the “who, why and how” behind great design and innovative thinking that is part of our everyday lives. Spotlight on how great design incorporated into our environment enhances our everyday lives socially, economically and environmentally.
Come by Wieden & Kennedy, 224 NW 13th Avenue, Portland, Oregon to see this incredible display and be inspired!
