About the project

Designers should not hesitate to practice an outspoken and authentic position in relation to the design world itself, the social landscape and their public role. As a designer you have the possibility to visualize your opinion on the many platforms that are available to you. A flag has a representative quality as well as a signaling value. By utilizing the public function of a flag and its symbolic recognition, we advocate:
sign your signal! And don’t be afraid to progress in praxis!

We love to explore techniques, skills and how we can create multidisciplinary designs. We silkscreened big graphic patterns on pieces of white and black fabric. The patterns were directly painted on the transparent films before we started silkscreening. This resulted in a small library of patterns, which we call ‘colors’ as we extracted the patterns from existing marine-code color language. After silkscreening and the assembling of the flags, we photographed them. This resulted in a poster-series of 2, where we focus on the responsibility of the (graphic) designer.
