ABOUT OUR PROJECT
Katrina 1,836 was created to commemorate those affected by Hurricane Katrina. It was donated to The Hurricane Poster Project, 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.
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.
