    Organized by Kim Dotcom, The Moment of Truth was a political activism event held on September 15, 2014 in Auckland Town Hall. Guests included journalist Glenn Greenwald, who presented reporting about mass surveillance on New Zealand’s citizens, and prominent whistle-blowers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

    It is not yet clear who designed the very sophisticated promotional material for the event, but they (perhaps designers from New Zealand’s Internet Party) were clearly parodying Saul Bass’ posters and logo for the 1962 political film Advise and Content. Tal Leming’s Burbank effectively emulates the lettering from Bass’ work, a tongue-in-cheek, cartoonish design that masks the seriousness of the subject matter.

    Thanks to Kris Sowersby and Angelynn Grant for the tip.

      Burbank has to be my most favorite of all of Tal’s work. It is just so nuanced and sophisticated. I wish i could see it used more widely.
