Using information from the IUCN Red List, Pentagram‘s Harry Pearce worked with a team to create a 22-foot wide typographic installation that raises awareness about endangered species. Displayed as part of the University of Cambridge’s ‘Conflicted Seeds + Conflict’ exhibition, ‘Seeing Red…Overdrawn’ featured the names of more than 4,000 endangered species.
