New platform advocates positive change in the world through art and design

With the aim to support major movements around the world, Signs Of Change is a new platform that calls on the creative community to spark positive change through art and design.

Founded last month by British creative Ellis Sargeant-Long, it's a site where you can submit your own poster design for people to download for free and use at protests. Right now the focus is on Black Lives Matter.

"We have had an overwhelming amount of submissions but we’d love to get more creatives on board to help strengthen and spread the message even wider," says Ellis. "The artworks so far are a marriage of design and language that create impactful messages used to help amplify the voices of the people."

He adds: "Art and design have always been at the core of supporting global movements. Now more than ever, it can help aid, share and empower the messages of the Black Lives Matter movement to help bring about systemic change in our society."

Signs of Change features a PDF upload system to make it as easy as possible for anyone, anywhere to get involved. The initiative will also showcase some of the best posters on Instagram. Find out more at signs-of-change.com.
