You can deny words, but you can’t deny film. That is the the belief which lies at the very core of WITNESS, the nonprofit human rights organisation that Harry Pearce has designed for and advised for the last 20 years.
For a new major campaign, WITNESS has joined forces with Amnesty International to highlight and prevent the ever-growing problem of forced eviction: the millions of people who are being illegally forced from their homes by corporations and governments around the world.

Hackney Laces is a community club that gives 12-17 year-old girls in London an opportunity to play football. There are many football clubs for younger girls, and many football clubs for women, but almost nothing in London for teenagers who love the beautiful game.
Originally known as Just Another Football Club, the club was named “Hackney Laces” by Pentagram’s Naresh Ramchandani. It needed to be a name that drew attention to the fact that the club was for girls, but since girls like to play football as competitively and as aggressively as boys do, the name also needed to sound tough. “Hackney Laces” struck that balance and also allowed the concept to be replicated in other parts of London if it took off – so Highbury Laces, Barnet Laces and so on.
