In Response: Contemporary Design

While searching for Russian Constructivist Posters on the web I immediately ran into a post on Tom Whalen's work. This guy's been really making an impression on the pop culture-oriented poster community. Also forwarded to in the post was another post on Eric Tan.

Process: Culture Counts Poster Entry

StringFigure01.jpg

String figures have been used across all cultures to express ideas and concepts. A ring of multi-colored strings tied together represents the diversity of cultures. The hands work in cooperation by mimicking the binding knots and overall reinforcing the circle. This is a sign of unity and wholeness.

The main image derives itself from another concept. Below it is a series of hands that illustrate the actions necessary to develop cultural relationships. At the end is a looping symbol that suggests repetition. It is a reminder that this dialogue must be continued in order to maintain mutual understanding.
