Public Protest Poster

Raúl Goñi & Santi Grau

The Public Protest Poster project by Navarrese designer Raúl Goñi is a design tool for protest, a proposal from urban activism and open and critical design. Its objective is to give a voice to all the people who have something to transmit through posters and to generate spaces for free expression in cities, towns, neighborhoods and streets through the use of disused walls. Based on practical action, it mixes educational processes with the creation of posters to produce knowledge and carry out research that promotes social change. He also reflects on the transformation of the role of the formalist designer to one linked to social innovation, to strategy.

During the lockdown, Public Protest Poster has reached an unforeseen dimension and acquired its maximum expression: many people have used the tool, Raúl has organized screenings from his home in Barcelona and a network of projectors has been promoted so that the posters that are being designed find their place on the walls of cities around the world.

The tool has free licenses and is available only for mobiles. It is very easy to use it: you just have to enter the publicprotestposter.org website with your phone and follow the instructions. When you have your poster designed, you can save it in pdf and share or project it wherever you want.
