AIGA has actively participated in election cycles as a nonpartisan advocate for voting since 2004. Get Out The Vote is a civic engagement initiative that encourages designers to use their unique voice to educate the public, and excite them about participating in the electoral process. This year, AIGA is accepting posters from members across the nation with the theme of voting. The accepted member posters are displayed at aiga.org/GOTV, and are available for download and reproduction by anyone interested in promoting voting in their area. Partnering nationally with the League of Women Voters, the goal of the initiative is to educate, register, and mobilize voters across the nation.
AIGA El Paso wants to participate in the process by asking local designers to submit their designs for a poster show at Proper Printshop. We want our community to create a dialogue on the importance of voting for our community, and designers can play an enormous role. Open to both members, and non-members, poster submissions will be nonpartisan themed, and showcase the wide variety of talent we have here in El Paso. AIGA El Paso members are also encouraged to submit their design to the national campaign here.
