In the video above, the likes of Jon Burgerman, Anthony Burrill, Pentagram, Serial Cut, Studio Output, Vault 49 and more talk about creating posters highlighting the UN's Global Goals initiative.

Launched in September 2015, 193 world leaders signed up 17 development goals around three key themes: ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and fixing climate change.

To help build awareness around this, the organisers of our favourite regular get-together for the creative industries - Glug - have got 17 well-known artists, designers and studios to create posters around one of the goals each. You can see a selection here.
