about

The Design of Dissent is a global collection of socially and politically driven graphics on issues including Black Lives Matter, Trump protests, refugee crises, and the environment.

Editorial Reviews

"In an age dominated by moving images, these freeze-frame visuals hold their own. They represent the activist strain of graphic design. Like contemporary advertising, it thrives on shock, wit and instant recognition. But as playwright Tony Kushner writes in the book's foreword, there must also be 'some galling truth . . . imprisoned beneath the surface of public discourse' that causes a designer to fire a signal flare." Linda Hales, Washington Post
