One of the key strategic components of the Unite Against Austerity campaign is to encourage diverse communities and groups to create connections and build solidarity between struggles. This was reflected in the design through the creation of modular design elements and a simple and clear visual language.
For May Day 2015 in Toronto, artist–activist Ryan Hayes reached out to us, and we provided visual and typographic assets for the organising comittee to use in their mobilisation materials. Mary and Jesse from Justseeds organised a screenprinting workshop as part of Mayworks, collectively producing hundreds of placards, posters, and bandanas.
