The Campaign

Posters on London Underground (2013/14)

This campaign is dedicated towards informing the world about an inspirational man called Hussain:
 what he stood for and what he gave his life for.

Our vision is to see a world inspired by the personality of Hussain: his morals, his actions and moreover his compassion for those around him.
 It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live or what you do. Hussain stands as a timeless example for all.

We want to create a global grassroots movement that inspires individuals to live with Love, Honour and Integrity, regardless of gender, class, religion, creed or any other factor that divides our common humanity.
