2012: The United Nations International Year of Co-operatives poster by Collage-No
The ICA launched an official poster for the International Year of Co-operatives in 2012 at the General Assembly in Mexico. The poster came out of an international competition, where co-operative creatives around the world came up with designs which expressed the virtues of the co-operative movement in the International Year.
Collage-No, a co-operative design agency based in Valencia, Spain are the winning designers of the ICA’s IYC Poster Competition and walked away with USD 3500 prize money.
The winning design was produced in a co-operative way, with each artist designing a different section using different techniques on a piece of paper folded into three, without being able to see what each other had created. They had no idea what the form would look like until they unfolded the piece of paper at the end of the process to reveal their ‘Exquisite Body’.
