A Community of Characters
The idea behind my submission for the CommUNITY exhibtion was to create a poster that speaks to local individual diversity but also reflects inclusivity as we come together to collaborate.
Utilising a common tool of communication, an alphabet, I aim to showcase the broad variety of personalities, styles and characters we have in Australia and New Zealand.
Each designer was asked to design a letter from the English alphabet that reflects their own style. I then designed the poster to hero individual diversity but also speak to the unity and collaboration that exists within our community.
The alphabet reflects a diversity of: – Gender: 13 females and 13 males – Skills: Illustrators, artists, designers from brand, web, placemaking, music, fashion, editorial experience. – Heritage: Indigenous, European, Asian and Middle Eastern backgrounds. – Location: Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales and New Zealand. – Age: Established talent, up and coming talent and talented graduates.
