My friend, Jessica Watson from Happy Hour Studio posed the following question after viewing my last post: If your company had to design a poster to promote voting, how would you go about it? I happen to love poster design, mostly because of my love of color and bold graphics. Posters tend to be more […]

Recently, AIGA had a contest called "Get Out the Vote 2008" where designers submitted designs for posters encouraging Americans to vote. Above are some of my favorite winning posters.
