Spatial Justice at Work

Inspired by our investigations into the theme of public space and accessibility, Tom and I designed a Spatial  Justice emblem. We conceived the Spatial Justice colour palette and design, a square matt grey background with two orange bands that make an equal sign, in solidarity with other social and activist movement logos, such as the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. The emblems were realized by Cynthia Hammond, artist and co-founder of Points of view. Our Spatial Justice emblem will be used in our upcoming workshop on public space and accessibility to signify points of inaccessibility and exclusion in the built environment. – SJ

  1. Great post, Shauna! And it is exciting to see the little paintings already making their public début. What I like most about yours/tee’s design is that it is responsive to, yet distinct from, the sister emblems. Great inspiration! And the paintings sure are fun to make. We’ll have a small army of emblems by this weekend…
