For most of us, it's hard to know how we can contribute to cleanup efforts in the Gulf of Mexico's devastating oil disaster. One outfit that has clear ideas about how to help is OceanaOceana logo, a nonprofit organization focused on protecting the world's oceans. If you'd like to help support Oceana and its conservation efforts, the cool designers at The Heads of State have made it easy and rewarding.
TOceana Magazine 2010he Heads of State is a design and illustration studio founded by Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers. The duo created a poster, titled Oil Drop, that benefits Oceana. The two-color serigraph (18"×24") depicts an oversized drop of oil, dripping below the U.S. The graphics are minimalist, but the message is powerful. The first run of 200 posters is signed and numbered, and Jason and Dustin are donating half of the sale price of each Oil Drop poster to Oceana. At Daily Grommet, we chose to spotlight this art project as a way of giving back to our country (we're not collecting any revenue from sales).
FOceana Magazine 2010ounded in 2001, Oceana works worldwide to address problems related to pollutants in the water, depleted fish species, wasteful fishing techniques and other issues that pose a threat to our world's waterways. Since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Oceana has stepped up as an authority on the ramifications of the spill and a resource for people who want to learn more about the effect on marine life and options for cleaning it up
The team at The Heads of State says it best: "We know this poster won't save the world, but we're hoping, with your help, it can make a small impact on the growing devastation."
