Helping African whistleblowers to securely share information
Keeping a simple yet distinctive color scheme was necessary because in the end we wouldn’t have control over the printing process. Various newspapers across different African countries as well as local activist groups would all use different printers (with different color calibrations of course) to create their materials. When starting the project we therefore set ourselves the goal of creating something „still recognizable when printed the size of kilimanjaro on a 30 year old epson home printer”
For FreePress Unlimited, an Amsterdam based NGO working on the development of independent media in countries without freedom of the press, we (Jonne Kuyt, Linda Tetteroo and me) developed the visual identity and communication strategy for their newly launched platform AfriLeaks, a sort of wikileaks for Africa that allows people to securely share information about local, regional or even national injustices with selected independent media parties.
