Graphis: Designers for Peace Poster

Our response to Graphis’s Designers for Peace: United With Ukraine poster competition, as featured in their blog. Flags are powerful in their assertion of statehood, historically used for armies to rally around, but also for those with peaceful objectives to congregate and demonstrate. With this in mind, we created a flag that interposes the Russian flag within the blue and yellow Ukraine flag. To demonstrate solidarity with the Ukraine cause, a black “X” cancels the invading entity. The result is entirely visual, non-linguistic, therefore international in reach and symbolism.
