Designed by Cut Once: Hurricane Katrina Fundraising
The Hurricane Poster Project was an international collaboration of artists and designers to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Each participant was asked to design and produce a poster depicting their feelings about the events following Hurricane Katrina. The donated posters were then sold online, with all profits going to the Red Cross.
ABOUT OUR PROJECT
Katrina 1,836 was created to commemorate those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Our design’s intention is to evoke a sense of emotional disbelief about the simplest yet most unbelievable facts regarding the disaster. The font for 1,836 was set from a collection of antique wood type. The name Katrina was set in a modified version of Avenir. The background is made up of random textures that were collected over time and composited for this project.
The primary visual started as a voodoo doll which is one of many images symbolic of New Orleans. The skull represents death. The water and stains in the background emphasize the destruction that occurred which is still a major factor there. The wings are angelic. This poster was printed on the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. There are several easter eggs tucked into the design revealing different facts about this disaster.
