This is a Project. It was designed by Josh MacPhee, Jesse Goldstein, Antonia Levy, Lindsay Caplan, Occuprint Collective and John Boy and collaborator: Marshall Weber. It is dated 2011–present.

The Occuprint collaborative curates, collects, prints, and distributes posters and graphics produced by and for the global Occupy movement. Their first project was an all-poster issue of the free Occupied Wall Street Journal. To support special projects, the group organized a portfolio showcasing 31 screenprinted images from the group’s online archive. Occuprint embodies an alternative ideal—sharing graphic work designed by people inspired by a social movement—while reclaiming a portion of the digital commons from the bombardment of constant corporate messaging.
