Daniel R. Smith is an amazing Creative Director at Tether. The Tether Grant is a program where we help fund and support great ideas that build community. Dan’s grant was to create the Seattle-Havana-Tehran poster show where designers from each of these cities created posters to be shown together in each of these communities. Seattle took place earlier at Bumbershoot. And, when this event took place in Havana, Dan was kind enough to let me and a few others tag along to observe and participate. What an amazing city. I want to visit again, like tomorrow. I grabbed a few minutes with Dan Smith and Pepe Menéndez who is Dan’s partner in the three-city triad and a resident of Havana, to talk about how this all came about.
