100 Objects

Irish Solidarity in 100 objects / Exhibition Design 

We were approached by 80:20 (Educating and Acting for a Better World), to design a visual identity and pop-up exhibition for Irish Solidarity in 100 objects. The exhibition provided a snapshot of Irish engagement globally with cultural, political and social issues over the past 50 years.

The exhibition offers a glimpse into the story of Ireland’s relationship with global human rights challenges, showcasing Ireland’s global citizenship, uncovering the many contributions, stories and campaigns, expressed through artefacts, letters and visual arts that bring these histories to life.

The logo was inspired by the definition of the word solidarity — unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group. The interlinking zeros of the 100 logo express this feeling of unity or action.

We commissioned a photographer to assist with telling the story of the people behind the objects.
