Celebrating International Human Rights Day

airportworkers-dec12Sea-Tac Airport workers marked International Human Rights Day, Dec. 10, as part of their ongoing campaign for good jobs at Seattle’s airport. The placards we designed for a rally involving both workers and community faith leaders took two approaches: First, the quiet yet forceful image of a lit candle. This striking image is a detail borrowed from a painting by Gerhard Richter. The second image of multicolored, raised hands echoes imagery used by the United Nations’ own Human Rights Day campaign, recreated to fit the specific concerns of Sea-Tac airport workers.
