    Earlier this month, Armin Vit wrote an interesting review of renowned artist and designer Luba Lukova latest poster collection, Social Justice 2008.

    Armin Vit: "Social Justice is a very satisfying collectible for any graphic designer. Individually or as a group, these posters are a reminder of how much can be achieved through such economic visual means."

    Amazon.com: "Social Justice 2008 is a powerful portfolio that features 12 thought-provoking posters by world-renowned artist and designer Luba Lukova. This collection swiftly and ably showcases Lukova's masterful use of metaphors and symbols to express themes that include peace, war, ecology, immigration, and privacy. Her distinctive style and vigorous visual imagination distill issues such as these into deceptively simple, yet formidably brilliant images, images that not only transfix, but that have the power to become indelible."

  • Thanks for the link. I'm a big fan of Lukova's work - so much so that I'm still trying to that 'project' so I can commission her. However, although I champion any publication of her work (as there is so little in circulation), I was very disappointed with this collection - it's not a match on her earlier work which seemed to have more of an edge, visually and concept-wise. I remember her 'Sudan' poster which still remains an incredibly powerful example bearing in mind that 'it's' sdtill going on down there.

    Thanks also for your other valid posts - enlightening stuff - good to see that you picked up on what Anna Gerber and her collegues are doing up there at The London Institute.

    Derek,

    Welcome to Design21! Thanks for your comments, I agree with you completely about Lukova's work. You website and work looks really interesting, I will spend some time having a more detailed look today.

    Anna Gerber is actually a member here on Design21 - I am pleased to say, I have recently been granted a place on her new course MA Design Writing Criticism at London College of Communication - it will be an honor to be taught by her.

    Kate,

    Thanks, nice to be here....

    LCC - my old college! - did graphics there. Wouldn't mind getting back there to see what they're up there- been hearing a lot about their teaching programme. The Shows must be on soon?

    Re: our website - thanks for the kind words - it hasn't been updated for quite a while, but the message is very much the same. If you'd like any further info/would like to know more please contact me.

    Buona giornata!
