According to the Guinness Book Of World Records, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world. It’s roots reach back to post World War II realities. The document gave voice to the first global expression of human rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It was originally ratified by the United Nations on December 10, 1948.
In recognition of the 60th anniversary of its ratification, Seth Brau, who is part of the brilliant team at Cool Hunting, was asked to translate the document once again, but this time his task was to bring its words and meaning to life through motion graphics. The result is a stunning and moving presentation. For a fuller explanation of the project as seen through Seth’s eyes, refer to this post on Cool Hunting.
