"Words From Project Poke Co-Owner"
New Design For Employee Work Uniform
Project Poke is looking for a new design for their employee work shirt. The owners have backgrounds in Peace and Justice Studies as well as Ethnic and Race Studies, so it is only natural that they are seeking a design that embraces the ideals of Project Human Compass. The graphic must illustrate the following idea:
“No Justice, No Peace”
A slogan of sorts that showed up in the 1980s as a response to the horrific attacks against Black Americans, “No Justice, No Peace” are words that conjure up a multitude of responses and feelings in different individuals. What do these words mean when taken apart? What does it mean when strung together in today’s climate? Project Poke is interested in how artists conceptualize this idea. At the same time, the illustration must represent the food served at the restaurant. It will take a talented artist and a well-developed idea to marry the two.
The chosen graphic will be voted on and worn by Project Poke employees. The artist will be invited to display their work on a wall designated for artwork at Project Poke’s location in Fountain Valley, CA for a minimum of one month and a maximum of one year. Shirts may also be sold to the general public, with a percentage of sale proceeds going to a charity actively fighting for democracy, equality, and justice.
