Can graphic design save lives?
An exhibition will be taking place this Sept. which focuses on the role that graphic design can play in saving lives. The show will take place at Wellcome Collection in London, England, and features 200 examples of work that includes hard-hitting posters, street art, packaging and medical designs. The exhibition examines how graphic design has constructed and communicated healthcare messages to inform the public and persuade society. The show features works from influential designers from the 20th century and figures currently working in the field. Some of the artwork shown will include an interactive poster installation from Brazil that was created in response to the Zika virus, anti-malaria posters from the second world war, campaigns regarding AIDS, and Italian “plague notices” from 1681. The exhibition has been organized by Rebecca Wright and graphic designer Lucienne Roberts.
