India Block Climate change action group Extinction Rebellion has unveiled a “radically different” visual identity, including DIY protest posters that will allow activists to flypost cities.Extinction Rebellion is an international movement whose members use methods of non-violent civil disobedience to pressure governments into taking action on climate change and the mass extinction of animal species. For its first major action in the UK today, 15 April 2019, the organisation has released a series of banners, flags, patches, posters and stickers for activists to download and use, to help spread the word about the movement and its aims. Designed by a volunteer art group, they all feature striking visual graphics. “We needed to create a movement that looks radically different to all eco movements previously, because they failed,” Clive Russell, a member of Extinction Rebellion’s art group told Dezeen. “They were anodyne or too hippy. We needed a movement that was both angry and non-violent, that reflected the fact that this is an existential threat.” The designs take inspiration from the Situationist International movement of the 1960s, which saw a group of revolutionary artists and intellectuals embraced anarchic activities to spread their anti-capitalist ideas.
