After 9 years of production, the Beehive Design Collective’s fantastically intricate and inspiring hand-illustrated mega-poster is ready for the print house! This hand-illustrated mega poster is titled Mesoamérica Resiste. It is the long-awaited final graphic in an epic trilogy about globalization in the Americas. Now that the illustration is complete, they need our support to be able to share this ambitious project far and wide. To support them, take a look at their website found [here] or their Kickstarter Campaign [here]. You can also watch their Kickstarter video below.
The Beehive Design Collective is a wildly motivated, all-volunteer, activist arts collective dedicated to “cross-pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images for use as educational and organizing tools. They work as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, shared with us through conversations with affected communities.
The Beehive Design Collective works anonymously by crediting every graphic they make to the collective as a whole; you won’t find the names of individual artists listed anywhere. They distribute their graphics by sliding scale donations, and try to give away roughly half of the materials they print to front-line communities, educators, and organizers actively working on the issues in the posters.
