  • ‘Burma’ Takes to the Streets

    Peace, Communication Design


    Harry Pearce’s Burma poster has been adopted as a placard by activists in the recent international street protests against the current situation in the country.

    The poster, designed in 2006 for an event organised by the New York-based charity Witness to raise awareness about human rights violations in Burma, has been appearing in news footage of the protests held in cities from Bangkok to New York. Pearce’s Burma Poster is available to buy from Witness’ online shop.

    Previous design work for Witness includes their annual reviews, print, packaging and website, as well as undertaking an evolution of their identity. Harry Pearce’s work for Witness is created with designer Richard Wilson.
