The Design of Dissent, one of the most prominent books about socially and politically driven graphics, is about to get an expanded edition and your work might be included.
Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic, the authors of the aforementioned book, are calling for entries by designers from all parts of the world. Eligible for submission are published works only – student and personal work will not be considered.
Published contributors will be credited on the pages where their work appears, and they will appear in an artist directory. The hosts are also looking to organize a traveling exhibition of the original prints to both promote the book, work and designers that are featured in the book.
In 2005, when “The Design of Dissent” was first published, the authors could not anticipate the era of conflict and disorder the world would face in the next decade.
Artists usually are the alarm system for society. Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic share the need to express danger when totalitarianism becomes more powerful. The Graphic Arts community uses the most primitive of means; posters, handouts, buttons, and graffiti linked to provocative ideas to protect us all.
You are invited to help observe and record what has happened in our time.
