The Random Project 2012 showcases a growing collection of postcards which are created by everybody. These celebrate the spirit of London 2012 and enable us to visually document the shared cultural experience as the year unfolds – we will all become the artists-in-residence for a historic year.
We are inviting EVERYONE to take part in this project; from artists to school children to athletes. Each postcard is designed in response to a randomly assigned word relating to either 2012, London or the Olympics. The Random Project 2012 is a not-for-profit project initiated and organised by graphic designer Sarah Hyndman.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE PART?
If you would like to join in and create a postcard please email email@example.com with a number between 1 and 100. You will be sent your word along with full instructions.
