Brief

Create a memorable piece of design that is indigenous to Brixton and amplifies its unique character within London.

Answer

The People’s Posters project is a platform for the public to tell us what they think of Great Brixton. We listen to the people, visually interpret their answers, design and print them as fly posters, then paste them in public (both legally and illegally, in keeping with the 2016 Rebel, Rebel theme) for all to see. Unlike advertising campaigns the only thing we’re selling are the people’s thoughts on one of the most vibrant communities in the UK. This project not only invites and reports the truth, it amplifies the voices of the community far beyond the district.
