Pop culture icon and multi-hyphenate Shepard Fairey has returned to his roots as a graphic artist to design the poster for the climate change documentary “This Changes Everything”, on which he is also an executive producer.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Naomi Klein, who also narrates the film, and focuses on the effect modern capitalism has had on global climate change through portraits of the small communities being affected. The film is directed by Avi Lewis and was shot over four years in nine different countries.

The poster itself is vibrant and eye catching with the strong block letters and high contrast coloring that define Fairey’s visual style. Fairey delivers the film’s message loud and clear, depicting a burning earth with a skull and crossbones in what appears to be a drop of oil on one side and a wind turbine in the shape of a flower on the other, representing the choice between clean energy and the fossil fuels that are at the root of the climate change problem.

Alfonso Cuaron, Danny Glover and Seth MacFarlane are also executive producers. The film will premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Take an exclusive look at the poster above.
