Visualizing Impact, Youth Unemployment in the Middle East and North Africa, 2014

Graphic Design as Political Weapon

The impact of visuals

May 2015
Posters on causes can only go so far, but exploiting their potential to maximum effect calls for a clever, crystal clear way of laying out the information. An organisation aptly called Visualizing Impact, based in Beirut, has found just such a way of drawing attention to the Palestinian situation. Employing infographics and crisp graphic design, its posters address the issues at hand head-on, responding to Israeli oratory in a direct and meaningful fashion. The evidence is there: the Visualizing Palestine campaign packs a pretty punch.
