About the work
“I originally conceived this poster for a national nonprofit client focused on racial justice. I consulted with the client and researched various aspects of the history of racial justice in the US under their guidance. With this design – ultimately not chosen by the client – I decided to capture the spirit of handmade protest posters, peace rally banners, murals, and other iconography from the Civil Rights movement. I came across the phrase, “No Justice, No Peace” which resonated with the mission of the organization, but we were a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and I wanted to capture a broader feeling of hope and accessibility. I decided to turn “No” into “Know” to give the piece an optimistic spin and speak to the educational aspects of the organization. To underscore the concept, I chose widely symbolic imagery of human hands releasing a soaring dove. After exploring a few stylistic treatments, I decided to bring the concept to life with a simplistic, hand-drawn, graphic illustration style inspired by screen-printing and American folk art, paired with a minimalist color palette derived from the pan-African flag. I drew the graphics by hand on an iPad in Adobe Fresco and set up the final layout in Illustrator.”
