Leading creatives - including Alex Haigh
(Thinkdust), Alex Trochut, Un.titled, and Nick
Hard of Research Studios, have collaborated for a
joint book and event in aid of Tibet, with the
exhibition opening in London last night.

The book, titled 3 Minutes, has just been
released, while the exhibition, titled Designers
Against Tibetan Abuse, runs until August 29 at
The Gallery in Cork Street, London, and
culminates in a charity auction (on August 27) of the works on show.

The exhibition features 52 pieces of original
artwork, each contributed by a leading
illustrator or graphic designer. The pieces have
been inspired by the human rights issues facing
Tibetans; the proceeds from their sale in the
charity auction will go to the Tibet Relief Fund.

The exhibition is organized by the Tibet Relief
Fund in collaboration with DAHRA (Designers
Against Human Rights Abuse), which also produced
the book. The book has been heavily trailed with
a series of promos (click here to watch the promos).

The book is based on 10 three-minute interviews
with Tibetans, each describing the three minutes
that changed their lives. This idea is reflected
in the covers of each booklet, which separately
make beautiful abstract covers but together form to make a ‘3’.

Contributors were asked to translate these minute
interviews into 16-page booklets, using primarily
typography. The result is a book made up of 10
beautifully designed booklets from leading
designers and typographers. Click here to find out more and buy the book.
