    Autonomous Design Group is an independent collective of designers, artists and creatives opposed to capitalism and authoritarianism. We maintain that the aesthetic is of vital importance in the terrain of political struggle. We aim to offer artistic support to a wide range of groups and movements and encourage everyone to contact us for designs. All our designs are open-source and editable.

    ​We use a combination of collage, creative graphical elements, strong typography and colour palettes to depart from the usual red and black style of the left – an aesthetic which we believe comes across as dated and out of touch.

    Shown here is a selection of posters around the theme of housing rights. Find more housing posters on our website.
