The Hurricane Poster Project
November 15, 2005 4:37 PM   Subscribe

Some are stark. Some are funny. Some are blunt. All are beautiful; all are raising money for the Red Cross's relief efforts in New Orleans; all are part of the Hurricane Poster Project, "a collaborative effort of the design community."

Wow, some of those are really incredible. Thanks doc.

I may have to get the vulture gas one, as that's one of the few beautiful ones I can hang up in my place and just subversive enough to not offend mixed company. But $200 USD ... anyone with some knowledge of posters want to comment on how high quality these are?

Blunt? Understatement of the year!

Several I want but they won't ship to Canada. Arrgh.

I'm crying as I'm looking at some of those beautiful posters. Swear to you: crying.

I don't have a lot of spare money right now, but I think I may just max out my credit cards to get some of these. Just beautiful.

geoff., all posters had min 25 runs. If the poster you want is $200, that means that there are only 3 left, max. At least, that's how I'm understanding the page. They all go up in price as the qty remaining lowers.

I just ordered a "fuck bush" one and will have it shipped to a USA friend. Some others I want are "coming soon".

This one and this one are my favorites so far.

But I may shell out for this one.

This is a great one, too.

Holy Shit! This is really refreshing. I guess it takes hard times to nurture great art. Really, STFU. This needs to be passed along.

Say, do any Bay Area MeFites have access to screen printing or traditional offset equipment? Want to join forces? I'm a graphic designer and I'll create a poster if someone could donate the paper and ink--my email's in my profile.

I really like the fema -->(horribly confusing vectors)--> new orleans one.

God, what a pain in the ass to navigate

Lot of great work here. See also: 25 above water. Though they're a *bit* more pricey.

F_M, I might be in for the paper and/or ink...I've emailed you.

What's an aproximate cost to do a run sufficient for this project, fandango? I'd be willing to make a partial donation (provided I wasn't offended by the poster - as much as I might agree with the "fuck bush" sentiment I'm not interested in financing wall-hanging glossies spelling out the sentiment).
