Protest Language is a short book about the power of screen printing and other art forms in designing wonderful, witty, and impactful protest art.
The booklet is laid out as a timeline starting in 1995 with the Civil Rights Movement and concluding in 2015 with the recent Equality Referendum. The bones of the booklet center around rebels and changemakers utilizing screenprinting to carry the message of their cause. Vocal sans is a typeface inspired by the hand-painted text seen on Atelier Populaire protest banners. The bitmap effect seen on the imagery throughout the booklet represents the noise generated from protestors whilst the square forms represent the bounding boxes of the signs.
