“A Sign of Resistance; A Symbol of Hope:” Parsons ADHT Featured in Design Observer

KONSTYTUCJA is constitution, TY is you, JA is me

This protest poster by designer Luka Rayski has become the identity of the Polish protest movement over plans to put the supreme court and the rest of the judicial system under the political control of the Polish Parliament.  Mateusz Halawa, Anthropology PhD candidate at New School for Social Research, has been the driving force behind coordinating the mass production and distribution of these posters, which signify a meeting of design and the constitutional crisis in Poland.

Susan Yelavich, Associate Professor and Director of the MA Design Studies program, speaks with Mateusz about the project. Read the full interview on Design Observer today.
