One Person Stands Up For Justice

For one night only, the 44 posters designed over the last four years by Nebraska designers for Nebraska Appleseed were on display to remind us that it just takes one person to say no to discrimination, oppression, and indifference. It was a wonderful evening and great to see amazing poster designs for a cause up for the first time together in one room. Read more on Medium.

Stand Up For Justice

In 2012, Nebraska Appleseed worked with Cathy Solarana to rebrand the organization. The 2nd annual poster show visualized the new mantra; to inspire people to Stand Up For Justice in their community. To tear down the obstacles of discrimination, oppression, and reckless indifference that keep the poorest of us poor and further weaken those among us who are vulnerable.

Many thanks to the designers who offered up their time and talent for the cause: Dave Markes, Kelsey Janda, Jeremie Memming, Liz Hunt, Craig Hughes, RDQLUS, Oxide Design Co., Doe Eyed and J. Curtis Rawlings.
