"The two words 'information' and 'communication' are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." ~Sydney J. Harris

The mission of Design Matters is to advocate for common sense, evidence-based gun violence prevention measures that will save lives by capitalizing on the ARTS and Design and what they offer: to illustrate, share knowledge and create unique ideas to change the methods guns are made available today.

A zine is a self-published, non-commercial print-work that is typically produced in small, limited batches.  Zines are created and bound in many DIY ways, but traditionally editions are easily reproduced—often by crafting an original “master flat,” and then photocopying, folding, and stapling the pages into simple pamphlets. After you make your zine make sure to share your copies with decision-makers.
