Carrie Hodson-Walker, a recent graduate from the University of Lincoln, curated a non-profit social design initiative as part of the final year of her course. She invited several international designers and illustrators from across the world to donate poster designs on the theme, Celebrate Water. Eighteen designers responded and the posters were printed in a limited run in order to raise money for water charity, Just A Drop.

All the posters will soon be showcased and available to buy on site

Here are some of the resulting posters:

Interestingly Melbourne's National Design Centre had a similar theme for this year's Australian Poster competition. You can check out the finalists here – unfortunately the images aren't huge.

Great idea and initiative taken, well done Carrie.
I love the response received from Pentagram.

I'm with Kate on this one. Rich should have the balls to post his comments on the Re-Bag Show post and give the graduate a chance. Dob should stop kissing his arse.
