The Misssing Peace
This world-renowned, inspirational, and indelible project kept me busy for several years and turned into a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me to work with so many incredible artists and generous visionaries. Here is a smattering of the design projects.
Chris Chope was the designer for all print materials created for the project The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama. This ten-year project centered on an international art exhibition which appeared in 12 cities around the world. His designs expertly conveyed both the high artistic standards represented in the project — for example, artworks by Christo, Anish Kapoor, Chuck Close, El Anatsui, and Bill Viola — and the intention of the project: using art as a catalyst for peace. The materials Chris created included a packet of information for museum directors and curators, donor submissions, educational materials, event invitations and product offerings. These were made available as online submissions as well as posters, postcards and information packages. His ability to create visually appealing and informative materials is exceptional. He is the first person I think of when I have design/branding and website needs. — Darlene Markovich, Former Executive Director, The Missing Peace Project
