I wanted to design a poster series to show the names of the individuals who have died as a result of their interactions with police. I wanted to humanize them, but I also wanted to show how much distance has been put between us and those who have passed on. In some of the posters I tried to switch the focus between the individuals and the movement that has been working tirelessly to maintain their memory. I feel that many people may think that the calls to defund the police are extreme, so I also wanted to highlight some major events that led to the recent protests. Additionally, the paper fold was used to represent how the narrative is being overwritten and how the names of the departed are behind the movement. In the first image on the bottom row, I was playing with the idea of the movement being propped up or supported by these individuals. I also used red, black, and green to tie the message back to the Pan-African flag, which was created by Marcus Garvey in 1920 and was a popular symbol of the Black Liberation movement in the 1960s. I also used variants of Freight sans for the posters, as it was designed by Joshua Darden a black designer who was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.
