You’ve probably seen this already: a video documented by the Palestinian Media Watch – A Self-Portrait of Palestinian Society. In their own words, PMW “has been playing the critical role of documenting the contradictions between the image the Palestinians present to the world in English and the messages to their own people in Arabic. The world’s view of the Palestinian Authority, to a significant degree, is the result of Palestinian Media Watch research.”

Their documentation includes some really scary stuff, e.g.about the way in which the Palestinian authority indoctrinates Palestinian children to seek Shahada [death for Allah] and die as a suicide bomber. The video below comes from that category.

What’s happening in Guantanamo is unacceptable up and down. I don’t believe in signing petitions anymore, but I am going to try now to give my message, End Guantanamo!, a new visual ID.

While allegations of torture happening in Guantanamo have become rife, I didn’t want to go down the gory path of design. Instead, I opted for a minimalist style, more akin to the pictograms developed by Otl Aicher for the Olympic games in 1972.

You can help spread the message – download the image below, mail it, print it, put it on your blog! Leave a comment with email address if you’d like to have a copy of the Photoshop and Illustrator files.
