Extinction Sucks - Design Porn for a good cause with Alice Palace


Having recently found out about the Glove Love campaign I've been on the hunt for more Sluttery with a Conscience - beautiful and unique things created for good causes around the world. And I reminded myself of the wonderful cards I'd picked up recently, made by UK designer Alice Palace as part of the Australian Extinction Sucks campaign - which works (of course) to protect endangered animals from extinction.


Alice got together with the girls behind Extinction Sucks to produce nine of the most original and striking prints and cards, each featuring an animal fighting against extinction. While I'm finding it utterly impossible to pick a favourite amongst the designs, I'm drawn to the rhino with its joyful 'lah-di-dah' (right at the top) and the 'we make a nice pair, don't we' bears (just here).


The Extinction Sucks prints and cards are available in the Alice Palace shop (where you'll find a lot of other goodies too) - but I picked up my cards over in Openhouse on Columbia Road in London town. You can also read more about the project, including lots about the beautiful animals and how you can help over on Alice Palace's website and watch the Extinction Sucks programmes on their 'Our Earth' Babelgum channel. If you like, you can also join the Extinction Sucks facebook page.
