The Haiti Earthquake Project was a collaborative effort by the design community to help effect change through our work. Signed and numbered, limited-edition projects were donated by designers and the sold to benefit the victims of the 2010 earthquake. All funds raised went directly to Doctors Without Borders.
HOPE LIES BENEATH
Hope Lies Beneath was created to commemorate those affected by the earthquake. The concept for this poster is hope lies beneath which was inspired by Haiti's nickname, La Perle des Antilles. La Perle des Antilles translated from French to English means the pearl of the Caribbean. A pearl is symbolic of something precious that is sought after. I chose to use it in my design to represent the people affected by this earthquake. I've incorporated several Easter eggs in this design revealing facts about this earthquake and if you look closely, you may find a silhouette of Haiti's country.
