Typographic Mood of Zimbabweans
A concept for a typographic treatment of the post-election mood of the people of Zimbabwe.
A comparison between the mood when they gained their independence from British colonial rule in 1980,
to 2013 when the ruling party won again after ruling for 33 years.
The original sketch which inspired the series of posters. While waiting for the results of the Presidential election to be announced, I saw the mood of the people change drastically from the hope of a new government on voting day to that of utter dejection as the first results came in.

The joy of a  people tasting freedom from their
colonial masters for the first time
F  A  I  R  N  E  S  S
Despite announcement of a landslide victory there does not seem to be
any spontaneous celebrations by the majority who voted
L  E  A  D  E  R  S  H  I  P
The people embraced their new leader and urged him
to lead them while they wilfully followed
D  E  S  E  R  T  E  D
The leader seems to have divorced himself from the people and he needs to
look back to see if people are still wilfully following him
C  E  L  E  B  R  A  T  E
A new nation celebrates as the country is now in
their hands to shape their own destiny
C  R  E  D  I  B  I  L  I  T  Y
The observers who sited huge irregularities were not willing to
make the call of an unfair election
D  E  L  I  V  E  R  A  N  C  E
The people are victorious and proud and ready to take on
the new journey of self determination
D  E  J  E  C  T  E  D
A nation down and dejected as their hope is once again crushed,
but they will get back on their feet...
 
THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE ARE NOT DEFEATED!
