Season's Greetings!

This year Southern Poverty Law Center asked me to create an illustration for a card they send out to donors as a sign of their appreciation. SPLC is a nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society. Consequently, these cards usually include a quote that fits with their message of justice and tolerance. I produced a purely typographic solution with this Anatole France quote, aiming to give the words the right tone and emphasis.

I've worked for the design team at SPLC on several occasions so it was a pleasure to be asked to work on this holiday card. They have, by all accounts, a very impressive donor list which (despite my efforts!) they're not allowed to disclose ...

I've also created a personal card this year, I've sent it digitally and made a donation to UN Women, the UN entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women.
