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. Other designers and design organizations, such as AIGA, are encouraging support for Haiti’s recovery as well.
