over one quarter of the world’s population faces daily censorship of internet services and access. psiphon, is a multi-faceted social campaign and downloadable VPN software, aiming to allow access to those lacking, and provide useful information to those who are fortunate enough not to face the issue daily. the project is geared towards western users–who are given unprecedented web admittance by most standards–encouraging dialogue about the issue of censorship, and hopefully, a social-led response powerful enough to enforce change.

‘/censored’ is the first poster series for psiphon, which uses a bright palette alongside the instantly recognizable logos of facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube, and google. each logo is hand-cut and formed with colored paper, composed in a way that questions government censoring policies. the project was created by toronto-based rack & pinion creative; for more information visit the campaign site here
