A self-initiated project in response to the Graphis call for entries: “United with Ukraine Protest Posters”. Our internal brief was to produce something entirely visual, non-linguistic, yet powerfully symbolic: by these means, multi-national in reach.
Flags are powerfully symbolic of statehood, historically used for armies to rally around, but also for those with peaceful objectives to congregate and demonstrate. Our solution adopts this approach to create, essentially, a flag that demonstrates solidarity with the Ukrainian cause. Symbols can have more than symbolic effect.
Project success will be determined by whether our entry can play its part in a communicative effort that reaches a wider public of individuals, organisations and governments, demonstrating solidarity and championing peace.
