Micah Purnell - The Finger
British graphic designer Micah Purnell is known for his interventions into advertising and other public information structures. Purnell’s work for Notes from Nowhere consisted of a beer mat featuring a stylized hand. Entitled The Finger, five white graphic blocks against a blood red background portrayed the universally aggressive raised single finger hand gesture but bore the biblical quote ‘Bless those who curse you’ within the graphic.
Distributed to Frome’s pubs and bars during Notes from Nowhere Purnell’s work created a distinctive counterpoint to the normal alcohol promotion normally found on this form of advertising & stressed the positive power of pacifism.
