The UnCommon Good

The Illinois Humanities Council promotes involvement in and appreciate for the humanities in Illinois, through event programming throughout the year. Substance will be partnering with them on their winter program, The UnCommon Good.

The premise of the program series is to address our increasingly polarized national dialogue. Blue states, red states, Keith Olbermann shouting at Bill O'Reilly and vice versa. Does a common ground even exist any more or are the moderate voices lost amid the din of the shouting?

The poster we designed to promote this series uses overlaying type to represent the cacophony of voices. The four questions are the title of each program, and the net effect suggests redistricting or dividing of the principles being discussed.

Look for the program to begin this January, which weirdly does not seem that far away.
