Thirty professional designers have been brought together in a group project, each depicting their "perspectives" on human rights. Marking the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10th, the artists have used their sensitivity to interpret and express in poster form each of the declaration’s human rights.
