Solo in Cartolina is a great project started in Summer 2018 by a bunch of young Italian communication professionals to protest against our goverment anti-human immigration policy, and to support NGOs work within different fields of social integration. The campaign is an open call to create summer postcards depicting the tragedy that happens every day in the same sea we happily dive into during our summer holidays. The postcards will be sent in 10k copies to our prime minister during a flash mob at the end of September.
The postcard I spontaneously created was inspired by vintage Italian holiday graphics. It featured a typical vintage retro iconography and a custom lettering inspired by those found in 30’s italian advertising.
