Haiti Earthquake, Disaster Relief
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.
This limited edition poster was printed four-color process, offset on Finch Fine, Ultra Smooth Uncoated 80lb cover. Finch Fine Ultra Smooth is archival and acid-free. Each print is individually signed and numbered by the artist, Greg Bennett. This edition was limited to 50 S/N. The finished size was 19 x 27 inches.
A special thanks to Baltimore Color Plate for donating their printing expertise and Mike Chester of Finch Paper for donating the premium paper.
