Oil & Water Do Not Mix

Protest powerfully with limited-edition posters made using Gulf spill oil

by Greg Stefano in Design on 27 October 2010


Putting a new spin on medium as message, advertising firm Happiness in Brussels created this limited-edition line of posters by substituting oil for traditional ink.

The screen prints, designed by Anthony Burrill, make their anti-offshore drilling statement even more specific by sourcing the oil from the Deep Water Horizon spill that wreaked havoc in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this year.

Each signed and numbered poster (only 200 have been made) sells online for €150. You can also lend support by donating to the project directly and all proceeds benefit the Coalition to Restore Coastal Lousiana.
