Vote Poster

For this project we were tasked to create a poster to get college students excited about voting in the 2018 US Midterm Election. And what do college students like more than free stuff?

Public Reaction

After finalizing our posters, I then got to help my professor, Annabelle Gould, along with 2 other classmates in Advanced Typography to hang the posters from our class publicly. Not only was it fun to see our work in Parnassus, a café in our building on campus, it was also really great getting to hear other people at the café reacting to the work we had done. The end goal of the project was to get students excited about voting in the midterms, so I loved immediately hearing the buzz from students discussing the upcoming midterm election!

I consider myself a politically and socially conscious person, so getting to actually put our posters up in front of students and know they’re serving their intended purpose was incredibly satisfying. I overall enjoyed the topic behind this poster and am excited to see what I can do in the future regarding social issues and design.
