Hurricane Sandy was the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, and as the second-costliest Atlantic hurricane in history.  NYC faces a monumental and daunting task in the days ahead. Artists were asked to respond to the theme: light. Posters by new artists will be added intermittently. Prints are 11×14 inches, digitally printed on Mohawk 120lb acid-free cover weight paper. All prints are $30. Prints will be added daily and will be available in limited editions of 50. Available for sale November 12 through December 2, 2012, and will ship within 10—14 business days after sale’s end. Free domestic shipping and $10 flat rate international shipping. Art will be shipped within 10—14 days of sale’s end. All proceeds will go to the Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Relief, who disperse one-hundred percent of donations to city relief efforts and organizations for food, water and hygiene supplies, as well as long-term relief and restoration effort.

The Design Activist’s Handbook by Noah Scalin and Michelle Taute
This manual for design activism is for every designer who’s ever sat at a computer, thinking: Is this it? Isn’t there more? We set out to help graphic designers figure out how to start making a difference and making a living—no matter where they live and work right now. It’s time to translate all this talking and thinking into meaningful, widespread action.
