Beacon Relief Effort

A collaborative design project to raise funds for disaster relief efforts around the world. Please enjoy the gallery and join us in making a donation to Direct Relief.

As communities around the world struggle to recover from back-to-back hurricanes, earthquakes and wildfires, we search for ways to support one another and heal together. Beacon is a collaborative design project meant to reflect on these disasters, create art amidst tragedy, and raise funds for the people affected by these recent and ongoing environmental disasters.

All donations from this project will go to Direct Relief, an organization working to provide assistance to people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, the earthquake in Mexico City, and the wildfires throughout Northern California. They specialize in emergency response and recovery, focusing on the delivery of short-term medical aid and long-term healthcare solutions. Please donate, every little bit helps.

Requirements and Specs

This project is an opportunity to reflect, react, process, pray and create in the wake of these recent environmental disasters.

Digital at first

The project is digital-only for the moment, with an eye toward printing in the near future. If you know someone who might be interested in helping to get these printed, please let us know!

Animation is welcome

If you’d like to animate your work, please make it an endless loop and keep it under 15 seconds long. A static version of your piece is also appreciated, otherwise future printing won’t be possible. Animated .mov should be 1436 px wide x 1920 px tall to match our poster size format.

Logo and attribution

We’re asking that the Beacon logo and project attribution be included at the bottom of each poster. Please use this template. Once your piece has been reviewed, it will be featured in the Beacon collection.
