Kick Daimler to Reparations

Medico International asked me to make a flyer for two events on the fight for reparations by victims of South Africa's Apartheid-Government. Daimler, amongst many other big corporations, benefited big time from their collaboration with this regime and I was fixing to go all Bob Geldorf on their asses.

This year, Mercedes-Benz will sponsor the German national soccer team in the South African World Cup with millions of dollars while neglecting to take responsibility for their involvement with a brutal and racist regime in this very same country.

Medico's overall style of communication is more keen on showing the positive side of people's actions rather than relying on imagery that is supposed to make you feel sad and guilty, ultimately exploiting the suffering for financial gain. That's how I came up with the motive, that reminds one of a soccer themed festivity or a joyful uprising. My buddy Michael did the typography and the layout of the flyer's text on the back.

There are going to be two events that you can attent to get educated this month.
