Visions for a Fair Future
The Forum Fair Trade has a vision for a fair future. This vision provides core values that can adapt to an ever changing world. A Communications design approach engages these core values in a flexible framework for a more unifying pursuit of a fair and sustainable future. Communications design that generates a conversation, a negotiation from a place of respect and partnership. We were tasked with the editorial design of a brochure as well as visuals portraying those visions.

"Good communications design generates a conversation, a negotiation from a place of respect and partnership."

Works in progress
These illustrations visualize four main topics:
Social Solidarity, The Future of Economics, Sustainable Production Within Planetary Limits, and Fair Trade.
We chose collage as an illustrative medium to emphasize the progressive nature of these subjects in an interplay of ideas. The dimension and texture of the designs pay homage to production of vibrant physical products. A metaphorical synthesis of the realities of fair trade production and trade.
