One of the things I have found missing from the post-Katrina recovery landscape is a unified media message about the importance of rebuilding and a sense that our efforts are being cheered on by our fellow citizens. I always thought that the World War II US propaganda poster was a good model for creating both a unified message and crafting a consensus. Some would be cautionary, others would exhort citizens to productive measures and still others would be of a celebratory or mission defining nature.

So, I started creating posters. They were on the previous incarnation of this website, and while some of them are clearly post-storm in their focus others tackle larger issues. Some of the issues of the previous posters have been settled for the most part.   Eventually, I’d like to get together a budget to produce these and bring them to the city.
