Beautiful Trouble – Designed for Rebellion
In collaboration with Sina Kamala Kaufmann, Michael Timmermann, Annemarie Botzki, Ulrike Bischoff and the team at S. Fischer-Verlag, I had the opportunity to create a handbook on rebellion. Extinction Rebellion uses means of civil disobedience to campaign for a turnaround in climate policy, while developing a self-image as a radically alarmist movement.
For the handbook, I managed a team of illustrators and created some of the illustrations myself, as well as doing the typesetting and layout of the handbook.
Of particular interest was the development of illustrations for hand signs in the plenary culture of activist organizations, which are gradually becoming a standard sign system across countries.
