Moxie Sozo, a nationally known design firm in Boulder,
Colorado is teaming up with
other designers and design firms around the country to create THE HURRICANE
All poster designers please step up!
THE HURRICANE POSTER PROJECT seeks limited edition sets of
hurricane-related posters from
high-profile and up-and-coming artists, designers, and design firms from
around the United States
and abroad. The donated posters will be sold online, and all proceeds will
go directly to the Red
As designers, we have the collective ability to do what we love, AND to
create a difference. THE
HURRICANE POSTER PROJECT has been conceived as a collective effort by the
design community to
unite and effect change through our work. In order for this project to be
successful, we are
counting on designer participation. Our goal is to raise at least
$1,000,000 for the Red Cross
through this project. Please spread the word. Please participate.
If you have questions or need more information, please contact Leif Steiner
firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-506-2320. We will have a website
information available shortly.
