Typography – Postcards

Are typography class was assigned to make 6 postcards on a political or social movement. I have chosen to do the political and social movement of parihaka!!!

For those who do not know about parihaka here is the parihaka website complete with the parihaka story:


Its basically where passive resistance or as maori call it “paimarire” which is like a lifestyle.

i have chosen to tell the history of parihaka through “whakapapa” or geneology.

here is the last postcard which i have been working on. Let me know what you think??? Its not the final yet though still got some work to do 😀

    Sup Ang! I like that you have used this political stand point with a post card. For people who don’t know much about Parihaka they would probably ask what it means so it would raise awareness throughout the masses. The concept and colours work well together. Simple and effective! Book me a set if you make them!
