Ruth Rowland creates a typographic card for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

SPLC is a nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society. Ruth was asked to illustrate a card to be sent out to donors as a sign of SPLC's appreciation using a quote that fits with their message of justice and tolerance. Ruth has produced a purely typographic solution with this Anatole France quote, 'aiming to give the words the right tone and emphasis'. She says "I've worked for the design team at SPLC on several occasions so it was a pleasure to be asked to work on this holiday card. They have, by all accounts, a very impressive donor list which (despite my efforts!) they're not allowed to disclose!"
