The Wire Poster Project is a new side project by Oliver Munday. He’s designed one typographic poster for every episode of cult favorite HBO series, The Wire, amounting to 60 different designs. And not only is this a project fun in terms of content and design, but it is also committed to giving back:
Each purchase will benefit the Baltimore Urban Debate League. Wire fans might remember the organization from the series’ fifth season when (just after being taken in by Howard “Bunny” Colvin) character Namond Brice gives an award-winning speech about HIV and AIDS in Africa in a BUDL event. Each WPP purchase will help real, at-risk kids like Namond Brice in Baltimore.
