the haiti poster project.
this here is a poster that i am donating as a limited edition print to the haiti poster project. you can view my submission along with plenty of other great contributions by an array of other great designers. they will be auctioned off online to raise money for the doctors without borders. this poster is somewhere between being conceptually driven and aesthetically pleasing. i really went with this composition because i liked the way the boy looked and then tried to play the idea of healing haiti's wounds with the crack like gash in the boy's chest. the blood stained band-aid is suppose to represent the red cross and its part in healing as well. i may tweak it before i send it off to be printed, but otherwise i feel that i succeeded in certain areas pertaining to the overall design. i recently threw together another tee shirt idea from an old sketch. it still needs to be worked out more, but i just wanted to lay it out to see the possibilities. i like the way these loose expressive lines read on garments. i will be looking to submit my ideas to a sister company of urban outfitters here in the near future. that should be good for now.
