We, the Young Brief description: The biggest and most relevant community of our contemporary time is arguably Fridays For Future and the millions of school strikers it includes. Together they have managed to claim attention and create a space of clarity on the topic of global warming, an issue that powerful lobbying interests have done their uttermost to silence and bring confusion to. One thing we, the grown-ups, can do to support is to lend our platforms to spread their message, which is what we intended to do with this documentary poster, depicting their community in the form of their "Letter to world leaders," and the statistics of the number of school strikes that have taken place across the globe up until May 17. The poster features Skrappa, a typeface inspired by Ken Garland’s “First Things First Manifesto”, urging graphic designers “to focus efforts of design on education and public service tasks that promoted the betterment of society” (http://www.designishistory.com/1960/first-things-first/). Skrappa is designed by Jacob Jan Wise.
