If Words Could Fly
This inspiring and beautiful 3D poster was created in support of the people of Fukushima, Japan. Called ‘Words can fly a thousand miles’, the sentiment seems quite apt again after the Oklahoma Tornado.
The team of designers based in Montreal were inspired by the Japanese custom of Senbazuru that promises luck or a wish to anyone folding a thousand origami cranes.
Once complete, the team sough donations and handwritten messages to console and encourage people after the devastation. You can see it in progress here.

Book of Insults | Philipp Mentrup, Germany
Insults are constantly present in everyday life. They are partially open and partially and very subtle and not immediately recognizable as such. They can be hurtful, but also charming and funny. The context plays an important role. That’s what interested me in this project.
The result is two books (asshole and victim) and ten postcards. As it always depends on the offensive view of the viewer you can read the books either individually as a turning book or unfolded as one book. There is one part of the perpetrator and one part about the victims. Every book is readable individually, but you will only get one viewing point. After the unfolding you get the whole story.
When it comes to insults each situation has always two perspectives. Not every asshole is an asshole all the time and not every victim is a victim all the time. Therefore, the contents in the magazines are not always clear to one side. The boundaries are blurring.
