The magnificent Mr. Mathew Hoffman, founder of the You Are Beautiful movement, is curating an exhibition that will survey the project from inception to present day. Over the month of February, YAB will fill the raw spaces of The Green Exchange, culminating in a one night public gala. JHDC was invited to design an Uncommon iPhone case for the occasion, a closer look at the artwork and event details are below.

You Are Beautiful is a bold and simple statement, established in Chicago in 2002. It began simply with 100 stickers. In the past decade over a half million stickers have traveled around our globe. From coast to coast, and around the world. The message has evolved into block long murals, public installations and exhibitions at cultural institutions involving thousands of artists.
This exhibition is curated by the founder, Matthew Hoffman. This project has grown much larger than any one person. Hoffman considers himself the custodian of the project, keeping the lights on and floor clean. He points to the incredible global community that has championed and embraced this message. “There has never been a more vital time for positive intervention than now.”
