Good 50x70 Anthology | Shortlisted, Exhibited, & Published
We are honored to be part of Good50x70 Anthology, a social communication project presented through 930 posters by graphic artists from around the world on subjects such as global warming, human rights, sexually transmitted diseases and other important social issues, created for various NGOs, charities, institutions and social volunteering organizations (including Amref, Amnesty International and Greenpeace) and collected by the Cultural Association Good Design.
This anthology tells the history of the project - started in 2007 - through all the posters selected by an international jury of renowned graphic designers, including Massimo Vignelli and Alain Le Quernec, together with original texts and an illustrated account of the initiative.
A reference book for whoever searches for a source for the communication of social causes, backed up by an online database with all 10,000 entries, and an inspiration for graphic studios and young graphic designers.
Good50x70 promotes ethical and social design, committed to the defense of human, civil and social rights and the protection of the environment. Designers and creatives from all around the world take part in this project with originality and different perspectives, spreading the message of change fostered by partner NGOs. Good50x70 gives the opportunity to learn about images stemming from unusual types of communication and which portray ideas in favour of a better future.

Five Contract HIV
The HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa is growing at an astronomical rate. The concept of this poster is “Five Contract HIV” which was inspired by this shockingly true fact: Every hour five people in Africa are infected with HIV. Arresting visual impact was created by composing bones to read as five however, after a moment of observation, viewers will then notice hundreds more strikes lie in the background. The strikes were multiplied over and over to amplify how many people become or will be infected every hour.
