Show up at Liberty Taproom on Tuesday, October 28 at 6 p.m., and you’ll be put to work (before you can even order a beer), courtesy of the SC Chapter of AIGA.
The informal meeting, where attendees will be armed with locally designed “Get Out the Vote” posters and charged with hanging them throughout the community to encourage residents to vote, is a part of AIGA’s Design for Democracy initiative.
Established in 2000, the initiative enables designers to get involved in the public arena by contributing to a coordinated national voter mobilization campaign. This year’s poster campaign builds on efforts undertaken in 2004, when participants created more than 50,000 AIGA posters and displayed them in communities across the nation.
AIGA is committed to demonstrating the value of design to the public. By motivating eligible citizens to vote on election day through the use of locally designed posters with a clear and critical call to action, “Get Out the Vote” helps to do just that.
