Design for Good Poster Initiative: Kickoff
Design for Good is an AIGA initiative that employs the power of creativity and design to improve the human experience culturally, socially, environmentally and economically. It aims to channel designers, and their creative talent, toward community needs and demonstrate how design and design thinking can make a difference.
For the Design for Good Poster Initiative, we’re calling on the design community to create posters that will inform Charlotte citizens about changes you think will improve the city now, and will inspire positive change towards making Charlotte a world-class city by 2025.
