“Design & the American Vote”
From the initial event proposal to the overall coordination and design, we handled every detail.
The primary goal of the exhibition was to educate the general public on the value of design and highlight the outstanding efforts of dedicated designers throughout the country and our community. The secondary goal was to present design in a setting that highlighted it’s value as art.
The exhibition showcased a series of 56 posters that were designed by AIGA members from around the country. This series of posters was part of the 2004 and 2008 “Get Out the Vote”; campaign initiated by AIGA Design for Democracy to enable designers to engage in the public arena by contributing to a coordinated voter mobilization campaign.
In addition to showcasing the posters, there was a display presenting how each candidate’s graphic design appealed to their core voter.
There were also highlights from other initiatives from AIGA Design for Democracy such as the Top 10 election design guidelines, previous ballot design samples and proposed changes.
During the month long exhibition we arranged for Khoi Vinh, Design Director for NYTimes.com and AIGA national board member to speak at a special event also hosted at Art6.
