A while back I was contacted by an Iranian man about a secret project he was initiating that would help the world understand the dire situation in Iran and the fact that the current leader Ahmadinejad was not democratically elected. More than one hundred graphic designers and Illustrators in the world have answered the appeal to produce a poster in support of the dissent in Iran including Milton Glaser, Brad Holland, Tim O’Brien, Richard Downs, John H. Howard, Laura Smith, Zina Saunders, David Cowles, Marc Burckhardt, Anson Liaw, Stasys Eidrigevicius, James Yang, Mieczyslaw Wasilewski, Matt Mahurin, Ivan Chermayeff, Michael Vanderbyl, Alain.Le Quernec, Niklaus Troxler, Woody Pirtle, Ruedi Baur, Wim Crouwel, Pierre Bernard , Dan Reisinger, Merwyn Kurlansky, Alan Peckolick, Lanny Sommese, David Tartakover, Oded Ezer, Armando Milani, Massimo Vignelli, Uwe Loesch, Holger Matthies and many others.
And the news is that the entire collection will be shown at the School of Visual Arts Gallery in New York in September. I’ve worked with Steve Heller and Woody Pirtle to make it a reality…thanks very much to curator Francis de Tommaso!
