For years now I’ve wanted to take the hundreds of free graphics from Faviana and my book Reproduce and Revolt and put them up here for people to use. Unfortunately that takes a lot of time and energy, which is hard to find these days. But as a move in that direction, I’ve taken all the fists from the book, as well as another 30 or so more, and created this “Fist Kit.” In the zipped file are 75 different fist graphics, all large (at least 8″ tall) and high res.
I’ve done my best to annotate the fists via file name, so each one is labeled by either the country it is from, the artist’s name if I knew it, or the movement it came from. I’m hoping this can become part of any designer’s digital protest toolkit.
For a nice history of the graphic use of the raised fist, read Lincoln Cushing’s “A Brief History of the Clenched Fist Image.”
