Fireworks Mean Fight Back!

By Kathie Baptista

Celebrating our country’s independence is always a fun and patriotic time (liberty and justice for all meets fireworks and parties). But it’s also an important time to take a stand on bigger issues, like the awful and unfair demonization of immigrants going on today (in the US but also around the world). We felt it was time to put our design skills to work for the greater good.

As a graphics studio, Jacober Creative wanted to make a dramatic statement with a bold visual impact. We created Instagram posts using strong typography and an understated, off-white background that, of course, also reference a red, white and blue color scheme.

We turned tried and true American catch phrases into stark questions – Land of the Free? Home of the Brave? – with an American flag image morphing into a prison cell, with a purposefully flat, retro look. Mining a vein of decades of political art that in the past you might have only seen plastered on walls and t-shirts, we turned the holiday’s verities into a digital-space intervention. It’s design – fighting back!

What’s happening in the detention centers, with ICE and the Border Patrol, is just our idea of un-American. We also put some money where our mouths and computer screens are, by donating to ACLU and RAICES Texas. We hope you can join us in turning this ship around!
