When the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill happened, we decided to print posters with the leaked oil and sell them to raise money for the cleanup. Anthony Burrill designed the Oil And Water Do Not Mix poster, and with the help of local screen printing studio Purple Monkey, we screen printed 250 posters and sold them for $150 each.
The posters were sold out in 48 hours, raising $35,000 for the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. The 'Oil & Water Do Not Mix poster' has been featured on dozens of websites and books, and was recently added in the 'new acuisitions gallery' at the V&A museum in London, which was a real mark of how the poster made an impact.
