Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas

After you see these designs and posters you are going to ask : Where can I get one? Why didn’t you tell us about this exhibition earlier? Well the answer is… I didn’t know about it! I quite accidently parked outside Fraser Studios in Chippendale and stumbled across this exhibition on the way to the White Rabbit Gallery.

The “Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas” was an exhibition of work by 4th year UTS Visual Communication students who were encouraged to explore graphic activism. It challenges designers to show awareness and responsibility in understanding the companies they work for and the messages they create and share.

Check out the talent of these students. I couldn’t resist buying the “Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas” exhibition poster as well as Tegan Hendel’s typographic interpretation of Chris Smither’s song “Origin of Species”. The song is a humorous send-off of both intelligent design advocates and strict evolutionists told from God’s point of view set to a Texas swing rhythm.

I am sorry to tell you that the exhibition is well and truly over, but I thought you might appreciate their work.

    Hi Tegan, so glad you like the blog. Happy to have your email on the site – I didn’t include it as I wasn’t sure if you would want it published. I have both of the posters I bought framed and hanging in my house – I love them. Let me know about any future exhibitions you guys organise!

  4. Hey Kylie,
    The bike one was my poster. Glad you like it! x
