Poster Party!

At last weeks meeting, we discussed a fundraising opportunity. AIGA will partner with Pepper Magazine in a poster sale. Here are some of the details:

  • Members, alumni, and faculty members will be allowed to submit designs
  • Maximum 3 colors
  • Overprinting is allowed
  • Roughly 12” X 18”
  • Can be funny
  • Must be appropriate
  • Designs will be due January 31, 2012.
  • Winning designs will be selected by AIGA members and UW-Stout faculty
  • 13 different designs will be selected to print. We will make 10 prints of each design. (Winners will receive a print of their poster)
  • We will host a Poster Party (poster sale on the South Lawn) this spring. We will sell the posters for $10 each.
  • AIGA will receive half of the profits from the sale and Pepper will receive the other half.
  • Members can participate in any/all of the process.
  • You don’t have to know how to screen print (this will be an excellent opportunity to learn!)
  • The subject of your poster design is completely up to you (just nothing vulgar, overly political, raunchy, offensive, etc)
  • A great piece for your portfolio—something to get involved in outside of classes

We will keep you updated as we finalize all of the details but start thinking of what you want your design to be! We hope to have large collection of submissions to choose from!

Let us know if you have any questions.

1 Word Night

Here are some of the designs from our 1 Word Night on November 15th. We used a random word generator to come up with a word, which we then designed for about 30 minutes. It was a fun event!

The word? THREE
