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.

Toward A Just Society
The 3rd annual Nebraska Appleseed Poster Show took place on October 10, 2013 in Omaha. Eight designers created a beautiful collection of prints with proceeds going directly to Appleseed’s fight for justice and opportunity for all.
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.
You’re Welcome in Omaha
A small set of posters part of a larger art exhibition. An evening event organized by Nebraska Appleseed to celebrate Omaha as a welcoming and inclusive community of all of its immigrant neighbors. Many thanks to the designers who participated: Tyson Reeder, Megan Merry, Joe Sparano, and Nicholas Burroughs.
Working with Nebraska Appleseed as they celebrated their 15th year, we organized a poster show to help raise money for the organization and to visually tell the story of their efforts to build a stronger Nebraska with the values of justice, equality, democracy, opportunity and community.
Many thanks to the designers who donated their time: Cathy Solarana, Oxide Design Co., Paul Berkbigler, Peter Morris, Jake Welchert, Ella Durham, Sam Rapien, and Doe Eyed. The posters were beautifully screen printed by Screen Ink.
