Into the night with a dictator

Night of Dictatorship: Assad.

These posters are made for an event about dictatorship. The event is held in The Hague in The Netherlands.
It is a varied and active program of lectures, exhibitions, night tours, films and debates titled The Night of Dictatorship.

The Night of the Dictatorships is created to deal with the meaning of democracy and the state of justice. It is the counterpart of the UN Day for Democracy (15 sept.). The event is organized for the fourth time this year.

More about the event here and here in English.


We posted a lot of campaigns in which dictators are used as main visual. Sometimes good, often forced. In this case, the designers succeeded in making a striking and humorous link to the event.
