Explaining an illness to a child, whether common or serious, is no easy feat. It’s something every parent must do, but knowing what to say and how to say it, can be a huge challenge. Often, they simply don’t have the medical knowledge needed to explain a disease and provide much-needed comfort.
This is where Dr. Giraffe comes in. With simple words and pictures, and grounded in medical truth, each book in the series tells a story about one childhood disease – ranging from common ailments to rare conditions. To mum and dad’s relief, Dr. Giraffe can do what they perhaps cannot: help young patients make sense of what they are going through, in a way that is clear, medically accurate, and (no less importantly) pleasant to read.

To wrap this artistic project, Elodie Boyer chooses one or several authors to write a specific text and Rejane Dal Bello creates a unique graphic design. As a result, UPO is hopefully a moving, shaking, an experimental and unexpected meeting place. UPO format remains the same but paper(s), printing technique(s), binding vary from one issue to another.
UPO 2 is dedicated to the work of the photographer Xenia Naselou. She gives us a glimpse of what is happening, on the island of Lesvos in Greece, observed with a beautiful sensitivity, without being intrusive to those who been through so much on the immigration crisis.

The design approach of 2010 European Design Award Festival was about raising questions to shift perspectives. ‘Design has become increasingly important in our current society, for business, government, and cultural life. It is not only about aesthetics, for the nice experience of beauty. It has a vital role, simply for society to communicate and function better.’
If that is the case: do we, in the current, global economic crisis, raise the right questions and address the current issues? Integrating the visual language of protest movements and abstractions of the European Flags, design and debate, Studio Dumbar created a range of items that invite you to join the discussion.
