The Fro designs were created in order to give others a visual representation of how the 1% feel about the Occupy movement. A Los Angeles-based graphic designer developed these bold, old-school posters to raise questions about the response of the opposition of the movement.

These pieces address the issue with parody and irony, questioning the real power of the 99% versus the 1%. In red, black and white colors, these banners show no fear about sending out a controversial political message and criticizing the condescending reaction of the privileged bunch. With phases like "We Control the Economy. We control the Trickle. We Control. You," the Fro designs reminds people that the fight they are embarking on might not be as easy as they originally thought.
