Occasionally, I get requests from the business community for students to take on design projects which gives them the opportunity to have published work in their portfolio. Right now I have a project from 350slc.org Climate Action Day, which is an event coordinated by a coalition of about 20 local non-profits, in an effort to raise awareness towards climate change. They need an 8.5 x 11 one-page flyer designed that could also be used as a poster.
Project Objective & Client Information:
To gain attention and entice art students to enter a poster-creating contest. The contest revolves around 350slc.org Climate Action Day, which is an event coordinated by a coalition of about 20 local non-profits, in effort to raise awareness towards climate change. The winning entries of the art contest will be used as promotion for the event, which will be held October 24th, 2009.
Create an original and eye-catching flyer inviting students to join the art contest. The flyer should follow the theme “World Unity Towards Climate Justice”. Flyers will be distributed to classrooms ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade, therefore images must be appropriate for all ages.
