Designing the News

While at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Johnny Selman monitored the BBC and created a poster out of each day’s “most important” news. The result is BBCx360.

Via Imprint:

"The purpose of this project is to promote the awareness of global current events with the American public," Selman wrote in the introduction to his website. “‘American citizens know little about current events in general and even less about overseas events’ according to The Washington Post in 2006."

Shown here:

  • May 7, 2011 - Libya ‘scatters mines’ in Misrata
  • August 29, 2011 - Colombia’s long task to identify conflict victims
  • August 16, 2011 - Tibetan monk burns himself to death in China
  • April 23, 2011 - Syria protests: Security forces shoot at mourners
  • April 19, 2011 - India: Haryana widows battered to death
