Poster Design To Remember The Holocaust

Designer Matias Delfino, who works for the United Nations Design Department in New York City, recently created this poster design for the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. The U.N. General Assembly declared Jan. 27—the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp—as a special day of remembrance to instill the memory of the tragedy in future generations to prevent genocide from occurring again. You can find a full schedule of events for this year’s remembrance here.

The Design Activist’s Handbook
The Design Activist’s Handbook will take you through a process for defining your own professional ethics as a designer and using those guidelines to make the right choices for you. You’ll also find stories and ideas from dozens of design activists that show you what a socially conscious design career actually looks like. Those folks told us not only what they do, but how they make it all work, from paying the bills during tough times to getting buy-in from traditional clients.
