- Shape: design: primal screams
- Edgar, Ray; Muratovski, Gjoko
- The Greenpeace Design Awards once again summons Planet of the Apes into the service of design. The iconic ape has been employed by Gjoko Muratovski in a Che Guevara-style mash-up that riffs on (r)evolution. Like its Japanese precursor, the fashion phenomenon Bathing Ape, the Greenpeace awards image also adorns T-shirts. And that's before the July 31 announcement of a winner to Greenpeace's inaugural poster competition. Exceeding expectations, 1400 designers from 77 countries responded to the tagline 'Be a Part of the Action'. The shortlist of 29 includes RMIT's Sam Dickson with a self-styled Superman that embodies the call to action, and Peter Gaulke who employs a rainbow fist.
