The Perin family reunion is an event to commemorate this Italian family name linking descendants from Italy with distant relatives spread around the world. Part of this story involves three hundred Italian peasants who in 1880 sold everything they owned and boarded a ship in search of a better life.  You can learn more about this story here.


The T-shirt concept was to create an infographic that tied the past with the present - linking family generations 125 years apart.  In 1880 these emigrants traveled by ship from Italy to the Pacific, and in 2015 descendants will travel by plane from Australia to Italy.  The diagonal banner was added to help lift the infographic title and unify the other graphic elements together.
