To coincide with the exhibition David King: The World Must Change at Standpoint Gallery (on the ground floor of our building) we will be running a series of special poster workshops on Saturday 15 October. Participants are invited to respond to the show’s title, using our woodtype to add their own protest lines to The World Must Change posters.
From the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, the British graphic designer David King’s protest posters gave left-wing causes a powerfully persuasive new identity. His extra-bold designs for the Anti-Nazi League, the Anti-Apartheid Movement, the National Union of Journalists, and other organisations presented their messages with a graphic force and conviction that no one could ignore. King was a master of hard-hitting typography with an equally assured command of photography.
