VS2: Design Changes. An Artvocacy Exhibit.
Three years after the seminal Project Versus graphic design exhibition, 18 Pinoy design studios—from industry stalwarts to envelope-pushing youngbloods, come together for Versus 2 this 2009. Inspired by legendary designer, Milton Glasers Designism movement, Versus 2 is a charity exhibit benefiting two fledgling NGOs that champion the arts: The Farm Projects http://thefarmprojects.org and Outlook Pointe Foundation OPF http://theopf.org .
Furthering the social thrust of the exhibition, the various artworks will revolve around the eight life-changing Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations http://un.org/millenniumgoals .
VS2: Design Changes will prove two things: that graphic design is an ever-evolving art form, and that—as an engine of modern communication, it is an excellent platform for social change.
