Making a stand for Grenfell.
On 14 June 2017, a fire broke out in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block of flats in West London. It caused 72 deaths, and more than 70 others were injured.
At the time of writing, the fire is being investigated by the police and a public inquiry. Among the issues being investigated are the negligent management of the building by the Kensington and Chelsea London Borough Council, the tenant management organisation, and the responses of other government agencies.
The event and subsequent investigation, has been inextricably linked with failings based on race and poverty.
On the one-year anniversary of the event, outdoor agency Brotherhood Media wanted to use billboards throughout London to stand in solidarity with the community, and commissioned me to design the posters.
I created typographical posters to connect with both the community, and outreach efforts seeking justice for the victims of Grenfell.
