FLIPSIDE @flipside.mcr launches tonight @7pm - head to www.flipsidemcr.co.uk + FlipSide Voices Live @8pm Huge congrats to this year’s @msoagraphicdesign grads and the team behind @flipside.mcr for diversifying and creating opportunity in a time that could so easily have stifled their voices 🙌🏻
Please take the time to watch this video from David Oyelowo @davidoyelowo - it is so deeply unjust and wrong that black people have a) ever and b) continue to face persecution of any kind. We are all equal, our hearts beat the same - black lives matter and should be met with the same love, care, respect and empathy as any person (in my case, white people) would expect to be met with. Please may we raise the children that surround us to be different than our own generations - to be kind and open and willing to give their time and love to every human being, regardless of any aspect of their lives that previous generations may have defined as ‘different’. Maybe then the future will be different - as it is long overdue to be. May we all examine the depths of our actions relating to equality and consider how things need to change so that no one grows up feeling that they are different or have any less value or lesser opportunity to make a difference or any less right to freedom or success (however you define it). We all have an individual responsibility and are all able to enable change through actions and awareness large and small. No one is exempt.
I’ve set my 6-yr old neice, Isla, a challenge to contribute to her homeschooling day. She is sending me one letter of the alphabet every few days made from things she can find in the house. Here is her ‘B’ 🔠💛 If you have children at home, you can join in too and make a letter a day (or every few) then post it to Instagram with the hashtag #letterspace and I’ll post them here too to share the joy. What wonderful alphabets we’ll be able to create. The original Letterspace brief to designers was to design a letterform informed by their ‘space’ - their home, their city, their work space, etc - so, for older children, there’s a more abstract task for them to put their minds to, too! See Letterspace.co.uk for inspiration and to read the story behind each letter. #homeschooling #homeschool #artschool #youngdesigners #alphabet #typography #letterspace
