The Haiti poster project

In 2005, Leif Steiner of Moxie Sozo organized the Hurricane Poster Project. The effort raised $50,000 for victims of the hurricane. Exhibitions of the show appeared around the country and in Europe. Additionally, many of the posters are now in permanent collections of several major museums, including the Library of Congress and the Louvre.

“We are doing it again!,” Steiner says. “This time, we are teaming up with Josh Higgins, the organizer of the 2007 So-Cal Fire Poster Project, to raise money for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.” All money raised will be donated to Doctor’s Without Borders.

Here are the details:

• DEADLINE: March 15th.

• Posters should be specific to the earthquake in Haiti or THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT.• The posters may be graphic or typographic.• The posters should be signed and numbered editions in quantities of 25 to 100. The posters should not be one-offs.• Minimum size is 11” x 17”. (Ideal size: 18” x 24”.) Poster can be produced by litho, digital or silk-screen print.• Posters may include credits for vendors who have donated supplies or services, but please keep them small and unobtrusive.• Artists will be responsible for designing, printing, and delivering the posters to HAITI POSTER PROJECT. • All submissions will become property of THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT, and will be sold to raise funds for the Doctors Without Borders earthquake disaster relief effort. Several posters from each donated set will be retained for possible future exhibition or publication.• When finished your design, please email a PDF or JPEG of finished poster for the site to: info@thehaitiposterproject.com. (At least 380px x 480px, please.) Include the title of the poster, name (as you’d like it to appear) and a short paragraph about you and your poster.
