Freedom of Speech

So, this is the other poster I submitted for the Poster4Tomorrow campaign.
As for the copy, I actually wanted to put there a few lines from Tracy Chapman's Why. But then I reworded if so as not to risk any infringement on copyrights. The copy would have been this:
"...the time is coming soon, when the blind remove their blinders and the speechless speak the truth..."
I guess this poster was to a large degree inspired by all the dotty images that I've recently saved in my Stuff I Like library. :)
Process is so funny. I actually wanted to make my posters much more "hand-made". That would still be me. I love collaged paper. I was also planning on making some embroidery that would be part of a poster. But during the process, and of course also because I tend to postpone everything up till the last minutes, my posters somehow got to be very simple. And I don't mind.
I'm starting to believe that process is more important than the outcome.

The Playful Search for Beauty

My hero, the legendary Eva Zeisel just turned 103.
She was born the same day as me, only 67 years earlier. :)
Many happy returns!

Freedom of Speech

One of the posters that I submitted for Poster4Tomorrow's campaign for Freedom of Speech.
The idea behind this was that people that are not granted the Freedom of Speech, might try to communicate in other ways, i.e. through their works. I'm not sure whether the illustration is clear or not. These are supposed to be mouth-blown glass objects, inspired by a video I saw on YouTube about a Chinese glass factory.

Inspiration: Dot Dot Dot

Beautiful! Dots are so simple and so perfect. I'm kind of in love with dots. I might say I like dots even more than stripes. ;-)
I guess I found theese on ffffound.com.
