I created this cut paper illustration for the upcomingUS & China Typographic Poster Exchange 2013
It features a portion of a longer quote from author Walter Mosley’s What Next: A Memoir Toward World Peace, “Every day that we wake up is a good day. Every breath that we take is filled with hope for a better day. Every word that we speak is a chance to change what is bad into something good. We aren’t slaves, concentration camp victims, starving Koreans, or even inmates forced to live in an overcrowded prison. We are free women and men living in the richest and most powerful country in the history of the world. This nation is at least a potential democracy. We need to wake up from this walking nightmare and realize that the sun is shining.”
In March of 2013, 100 typographic posters by 50 American and 50 Chinese graphic designers will begin their tour of China. On June, 7th, 2013 this same collection will tour the United States. The mission of this exhibition is to expose two cultures to each another and hopefully come to some realizations about ourselves and our own use of language through the exposure to new approaches and ideas on typography. More about the show is HERE.
