Equality & Diversity
Designed for use by the downtown businesses of Charlottesville VA, on August 12th 2017. When it was announced that the Unite The Right rally would be happening only a block away, there was a large outcry from the business owners. Whether they planned to stay open or close they needed a statement of unity.
That statement was made by 4 variants of this 11x17 poster. Coming in Black and White and Rainbow versions of both the Open and Closed statement, they created a sense of community and solidarity.
These posters made national news, appearing in the backgrounds of photos and videos from the day and getting retweeted by people nationwide.
Ultimately being featured in an article by Fast Company.
