Amnesty International: Civil Society Under Attack

Design, Illustration

Civil society has been at the forefront of efforts to defend human rights following the May 2014 military coup in Thailand. In response, Thai authorities have targeted political activists, human rights defenders and others as part of a systematic crackdown on government critics. This report highlights these issues.

The cover design shows hands in shackles. These hands also form a bird of freedom to signify how freedom to speak out is being suppressed. The challenge of designing this report was that we only had very limited photos to use. So illustrations of those who were under threat were illustrated within each Chapter header as well as Infographics were designed to help make it visually more interesting and help bring this report to life.
