Poster artwork for an activist event

Occupy mbar

Occupy Helsinki organized a support event at a local bar. The event displayed audiovisual productions of the global occupy movement and brought the street atmosphere into a bar environment.

The humanist objectives of the movement needed to be separated from the classical leftist visual style.

The occupy movement is non-violent and all encompassing struggle against selfishness – the themes the poster artwork conveys.

Poster for a humanitarian campaign

Poverty is in your handsPoverty is in your hands

We can all contribute to the flow of giving and sharing. If the channel is broken the ones below are the first to suffer.

All of the power is in our hands. You should be free to to do with them what ever you wish for. Why is it that we cannot give from what we have? Is it because we feel that we are too poor, or is it because we are selfish, or do we already barely live from what we can get.

How come so much is wasted then? The ones in the bottom live from the waste that is thrown away… Equalizing the flow means less wasting and more giving, a better life for everyone.

Poverty touches all levels of life, not just the poor. That poverty exists means that we are all poor. The ones who give are the richest of the world.

This poster is the call for action, and a sad display of today’s reality – but there’s hope too.
