A collaboration of artists and designers from around the world, benefitting victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
Moxie Sozo, the organizer of the 2005 HURRICANE POSTER PROJECT, is teaming up with Josh Higgins, the organizer of the 2007 SO-CAL FIRE POSTER PROJECT to produce the 2010 HAITI POSTER PROJECT
THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT seeks limited edition sets of posters from artists, designers and design firms from around the world. The donated posters will be sold online to raise money for Doctors Without Borders (http://doctorswithoutborders.org/). As designers, we have the collective ability to do what we love, AND to create a difference. THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT has been conceived as a collective effort by the design community to unite and effect change through our work. In order for this project to be successful, we are counting on designer participation. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000,000 for Doctor’s Without Borders. Please help spread the word.

This comes from a book published in 1992 by Ediciones Gianni Constantino, Italy. Many of these posters have been recently designed, with references to graphic design in the 1950's.

Art of Cuba
Book By Its Cover reviews this book (as well as other inspiration for books).
Also, read an article about Cuban design school, El Instituto Superior de Deseno Industrial (ISDI), with work samples in Creative Review. Note in the essay, much of the design work by students are used by Cuban companies and institutions, even though there is actually only one company in Cuba, the Cuba government.

MEMBER SERIES: THE REEL WORLD: NEW YORK
Call it Poetry in Motion—those short-form bursts of tightly choreographed type and compressed narrative that create our first impressions of a movie or TV show. And though they’ve been around since the advent of commercial cinema, never before have title sequences been as much in the limelight as they are today. “The Reel World: New York” offers up a rare opportunity to see the Big Apple’s greatest motion-graphics gurus on the same stage describing the methods and meanings behind this ever-evolving art form.
Randy Balsmeyer of Big Film Design.
Through his long standing relationships with The Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, David Cronenberg, and the late Robert Altman, Randy has yielded some of the most memorable titles sequences in film history.
Rama Allen of Digital Kitchen
As a Creative Director at Digital Kitchen, Rama will be speaking about their Emmy nominated titles for True Blood and how they approach Television sequences differently from those in Film.
Josh Norton of Big Star
Having created titles for recent hit docs: Food Inc. and Gonzo, Josh will talk about the workings and process of title design from a creative team in a small, young company.
Karin Fong of Imaginary Forces
