World Press Free­dom Day: speak­ing out through de­sign

ArabAd - - DESIGN -

Free­dom of in­for­ma­tion is a fun­da­men­tal free­dom and a hu­man right. Yet in dozens of coun­tries around the world, pub­li­ca­tions are cen­sored and closed down, while jour­nal­ists, ed­i­tors and pub­lish­ers are ha­rassed, at­tacked, de­tained and even mur­dered. The United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific and Cul­tural Or­gan­i­sa­tion (UNESCO) re­ceived over 180 creative posters for the global com­pe­ti­tion it launched, and which aimed at high­light­ing the main theme of the year: ‘Ac­cess to In­for­ma­tion and Fun­da­men­tal Free­doms: This Is Your Right!’.

from Ja­maica is the de­signer be­hind the win­ning sub­mis­sion. A pro­posal with an im­age of speech bub­bles in bright colours rep­re­sent­ing free­dom of ex­pres­sion has been se­lected as the win­ning de­sign for the vis­i­bil­ity cam­paign of the up­com­ing World Press Free­dom Day 2016. Among the sub­mis­sions, over twenty pro­pos­als were of such high qual­ity that they have re­ceived an hon­ourable men­tion to pub­licly recog­nise their ex­cep­tional de­sign and hard work. Arabad fea­tures a se­lected few among the short­listed sub­mis­sions.
