Designer’s Quest(ionnaire): Community Activist Designer Justin Kemerling

The Designer’s Quest(ionnaire) is a Design Feast initiative that describes and captures a designer’s perspective in a succinct format. Established in 2004, The Match Factory “was designed to be a place for creative expression. A place for people to share their passions, opinions and projects, and to exist in a space together where they can learn from each other and grow in exciting new directions.” One of The Match Factory’s affiliated projects is Power To The Poster, “a graphic design democracy project” that addresses the issues of our time. The link between these two projects of design activism is Justin Kemerling who pursues the role of “community activist designer.” His thinking about design strives toward the goal of common good and positive social change.
