Window Shopping

Check out this amazing project by graphic designer Chris Clarke, "For the Public by the Public".
In Chris's small home town of Bedminster, he felt there were too many boarded up shops. Being unpleasing to the eye, it was having a negative affect on community spirit.

Chris asked local shop owners to write a message about their experiences of the local area. These messages were communicated in graphically designed posters and placed in the windows of the derelict shops for all who passed to see. What a beautiful idea, this shows how designers can make a visual difference to shops which are no longer even in use!
