This project fuses together poetry, which traverses the movements and memoirs from journeys, with visuals that embody those words. These works focus on those who have documented experiences as refugees, asylum seekers, diaspora and migrants.

Designers were presented solely with a piece of poetry to interpret and visualise. The final posters are an insight into the work of the poet and the mind of the designer in harmony. The collaborative efforts explore how one experience, one perspective and one journey are approached differently by those within and those outside.
