Designer Activism

Activist groups turn to high-profile designers for marketing purposes

Implications - When advocating for social change, activist groups turn to experienced creatives who produce attention-captivating promotional materials. The visually engaging assets foster an accessible identity for the social justice movement, providing a way for brands and groups to deliver politically relevant topics in the least confrontational manner. In introducing artistic components to marketing materials, activists are able to advocate for change while offering a keep-sake for their audience.
