Podium is a graphic design lead project that questions the value of visual and verbal communication in the face of adversity. Drawing from a wide pool of contributors with varying professional and personal backgrounds, Podium highlights the different ways in which people understand the complex and difficult climate of today’s changing world through a creative lens.
Contributors were invited to submit a response to the brief sent via email which asked, ‘If This Was Your Last Chance of Expressing Free Speech, What Would You Want to Say and How? What is the value of free speech in a world where this freedom is both weaponized and exploited?
Podium sheds light on the creative and decision making process behind each response, by asking contributors to attach a rational of no more than 300 words, so that the given voices can be both understood and questioned.
