Design is Change Poster, graphic design III, GRA4818, Samantha Lopez

For my non-profit orgnaization I picked Piag Museum.Their current project is called Earth and Water, and mission is to educate, showcase, and promote art in all its forms. They do this by painting styrofoam cubes and placing them on water or on thr ground as an art piece. Based off of their concept I decided to create my posters into cubes.

Design is Change – Posters

These are a series of 10 posters that I created and would donate to the Camillus House Organization. My objective was to raise awareness to this non-profit organization cause. They have been offering charity for years to populations suffering from poverty and homelessness, which can include health care, hospitality, counseling, teaching, plus other programs, donations and services. Their purpose is to assist the majority of individuals and families in need and as result try to help them obtain a permanent housing, income, and best well being as possible. Therefore, it is important to somehow spread the message to the community to make the people think and reflect to support in some way to this good cause.

Design Is Change Posters

These are a series of posters I created for the non-profit organization Greenpeace. Greenpeace uses peaceful protest and creative communication to bring awareness to a wide range of environmental issues. For the first four posters, I used the metaphor of the broken heart to depict the damage being done to environments such as the Arctic, the atmosphere, the ocean, and the Amazon. The middle two posters are to inspire people to find out more about the issues being addressed in the posters, which are the act of taking a pledge to join a food movement for a healthier and environmentally-friendly lifestyle, and the critical condition of the bees and what that means to us as a species. The last four posters focus on plastic pollution prevention and celebrate the people that have made small changes in their lifestyle to reduce plastic waste by doing things like refusing plastic straws and bags, bringing your own metal cutlery, and using reusable water bottles, as well as show the people that haven’t made these changes that these changes are doable and will make a difference if we do it as a collective group. I do this by using a playful approach with a combination of puns or a play on words and colorful illustrations, which is a contrast from many of the plastic pollution posters out right now which are educational but make the viewer feel overwhelmed and helpless to the issue. These posters were made as part of the Design is Change project and were donated to Greenpeace.
