01 September 2005 My critique of graphic activism, ‘Practise, don’t preach’, has been published in the September 2005 issue of Creative Review, and is also the subject of the issue’s editorial. I argue that graphic activism represents bad politics and makes for bad design. It’s anti-humanist culture of complaint fails to present a cultural or political alternative to the targets it attacks. And the ethics it espouses is notably absent at home. The article elicited considered responses from Jonathan Barnbrook, Sallyanne Theodosiou, Andrew Howard, Michael Johnson and Josh On, in the October, November and December 2005 issues of Creative Review.
