Get Out the Vote: Poster Design-a-thon

Join AIGA Salt Lake City and national AIGA board member, Kevin Perry, for a high-energy, grassroots evening dedicated to AIGA Get Out the Vote initiative. Get Out the Vote is a civic engagement initiative designed to wield the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 general election, as well as local elections to come.

We’ll not only explore ways designers can make a meaningful contribution to society, we’ll set aside some time to take action. You’ll be invited to contribute non-partisan posters to the 2016 collection by collaborating with diverse array of designers, thinkers and influencers. 

You’ll learn rapid brainstorming tools to help you ideate your poster design, get feedback from the group, and celebrate SLC’s contribution to the national effort in increasing voter participation. 

All posters submitted will be displayed in AIGA’s online gallery, and a selection of posters will be featured in exhibitions put on in connection to the Democratic and Republican national conventions, as well as at the AIGA Design Conference in Las Vegas this October. More info at

Bring pencil, paper, and laptop (if you’d like). We will provide additional materials for prototyping. Food and drinks will be provided.

Free to AIGA members and the public.
But space is limited so grab your space early!

*You must be an AIGA member to be eligible to contribute to the 2016 collection. Designs will be reviewed by AIGA to ensure they communicate a voter-mobilizing call to action through nonpartisan visuals and copy.
