Project Twenty-Six

Poster design for a charity group exhibition based around the Latin alphabet. Alongside 25 other designers, I was asked to submit my interpretation of the letter 'U'.  100% of all proceeds were donated to WIRES.

'Unearthly' is based around the theme of unearthly objects; a phonetic interpretation of 'yu' in Chinese pinyin which represents multiple characters and meanings (e.g. 宇 'universe', 于 'to go', 与 'to give', 踰 'to transcend'). These items are traditional offerings given to ancestors; an homage to the dead.

Exhibited at Goodspace Gallery on February 19th 2020.
