We had the privilege of finding out more about the beautiful project by Sarah Louise.
"The tragedy in Ukraine is an event that shook the lives of so many around the world, and continues to feel close to home. With strong ties to this humanitarian crisis, my Polish-born partner and I put our hearts and minds together with our combined skills in painting, photography, and design, to create ‘Ukraine
Sunflower’ — a poster print in the name of hope.
The poster design is inspired by the recent footage of a Ukrainian lady offering sunflower seeds to a Russian soldier to plant life after death – “Put sunflower seeds in your pocket so they grow when you die.”
A sunflower symbolising the period of denuclearisation in Ukraine from 1996 to resistance in 2022, the print is the product of one day’s creation time. With meaning weaved through all elements of the poster, the font used is by designer Andriy Konstantynov. Polarising in itself, Konstantynov is Russia born, currently residing in Ukraine. Sunflower seed sales are a huge source of economic supply to Ukraine, and it’s my hope this design can bring continued and much needed financial aid to their people."
