The Power of Tweets

Pro Bono Illustration - Series


IFEX wanted to get free speech activists involved by gaining followers on the most political platform of all, Twitter. To do this, we reminded them of their collective power in the fight for free speech when they come together and speak out in unison.We needed an illustrator who could bring the gravity of the fight for free speech to life. Owen Gent’s organic style has the ability to create tension and urgency while also using the Twitter birds as a symbol of hope.
