What can graphic design reveal about law?

LAWx6 (c) Amanda Perry-Kessaris
I set myself the task of developing at least 10 designs that are each intended to communicate, and facilitate discussion about, a widely perceived characteristic of law. My (self-imposed) constraints were to use no text other than the word ‘law’ within the design, with a short title and background note on the reverse; and that the design must fit on an A5 card.

Final versions of the designs + captions, can be found here.

Draft designs went out for feedback in an online mini show via the links below (and via Twitter @aperrykessaris #apkLAWdesigns) on 6 November:
