For most of us, it’s hard to know how we can contribute to cleanup efforts in the Gulf of Mexico’s devastating oil disaster. One outfit that has clear ideas about how to help is Oceana, a nonprofit organization focused on protecting the world’s oceans. If you’d like to help support Oceana and its conservation efforts, the cool designers at The Heads of State have made it easy and rewarding.

For most of us, it’s hard to know how we can contribute to cleanup efforts in the Gulf of Mexico’s devastating oil disaster. One outfit that has clear ideas about how to help is Oceana, a nonprofit organization focused on protecting the world’s oceans. If you’d like to help support Oceana and its conservation efforts, the cool designers at The Heads of State have made it easy and rewarding.

The Heads of State is a design and illustration studio founded by Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers. The duo created a poster, titled Oil Drop, that benefits Oceana. The two-color serigraph (18”×24”) depicts an oversized drop of oil, dripping below the U.S. The graphics are minimalist, but the message is powerful. The first run of 200 posters is signed and numbered, and Jason and Dustin are donating half of the sale price of each Oil Drop poster to Oceana.

Founded in 2001, Oceana works worldwide to address problems related to pollutants in the water, depleted fish species, wasteful fishing techniques and other issues that pose a threat to our world’s waterways. Since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Oceana has stepped up as an authority on the ramifications of the spill and a resource for people who want to learn more about the effect on marine life and options for cleaning it up

The team at The Heads of State says it best: “We know this poster won’t save the world, but we’re hoping, with your help, it can make a small impact on the growing devastation.”
