We Used to Employ People, Now We Warehouse Them

One of a set of four posters designed for the Amplifier Foundation. The attached file is a 18″x24″ poster. Feel free to download, manipulate, rework, and reuse.


A patterned background in red showing a repeated image of a figure curled into a ball, head between their knees. They have fit themselves into a small square area and criss-crossing bars enclose them in. The image repeats perhaps 50 or so times, alternating in facing right and then left, and alternating in color. Overlayed are angular bands of transparent turquoise blue that contain the following text in white: “We used to employ people in this country, now we just warehouse them instead.”
