Helping Haiti Through Design

The firm's recent client, Peace Dividend Trust , whose Marketplace Recovery Project helps post-conflict countries recover economically by supporting the purchasing of local goods and services, is making expedited efforts in response to Haiti's devastating earthquake. PDT, who had recently sent a team to initiate the project in Haiti, reached out to Emanuela Frigerio yesterday, requesting graphic design for this purpose.

As the originators of the Marketplace Recovery Project's logo, C&G; Partners donated "Build Local. Build Haiti." lock-ups, in both French/Creole and English/Creole, and versions with and without web addresses, all executed quickly in order to get these graphics available as soon as possible. Peace Dividend Trust has also put up a temporary web portal just for their Haitian mission, and you can read more about the developing program in Haiti here . Other designers and design organizations, such as AIGA , are encouraging support for Haiti's recovery as well.
