60 years project


The 60 Years project aims to creatively commemorate the 60th anniversary of UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights): the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled.
Designers have been invited to take part by writing or drawing on a mini protest board to exercise their right to free speech and self-expression. See more about all this here

Christmas by colour


Christmas by colour is a not for profit exploration into the colours that shape our christmas. Raw design studio set up this collaborative project to identify which colours people really associate with christmas. They've now produced an A1 poster limited to 500 copies and A2 wrapping paper sheets. It seems either my 'Parker pen set blue' or 'Ebay yellow' made it through to the poster, not sure which. All profits willl be donated to CALM.
