VJ Movement Book

Trapped in Suburbia is an agency of visual communication and creative concepts based in The Netherlands. As a journalist, one of my favorite projects from TiS has been the VJ Movement Book.
As described on the TiS website,
VJ Movement gives journalist around the world the opportunity to show their stories and tell their truths. Everyone can join the VJ Movement and pitch their story ideas to the journalists. If you want to hear more about a certain topic because you can’t see this on the regular news, you can pitch your idea. If your idea get the most votes, a professional VJ journalist will report the story for you and it will be published online.

The book was created by TiS along with an identity package and website. I didn't know about VJ Movement before Trapped in Suburbia and I'm really glad to have discovered it. The VJ belief that there is more than one truth, more than one side to a story, means they offer up more than one perspective on issues and let the user decide what the truth is. 

The group consists of 150 professional visual journalists and cartoonists from around the world, who use outside input and collaboration to tackle serious topics that don't always get the attention they deserve from mainstream media. Projects range from covering Same Sex Marriage to Child Labor to Press Freedom, and more.

This is simply gorgeous. I'm a huge fan in the Clue Jr.-like red filter.
