Get Out the Vote!
Once again, Portland Public Library has partnered with Graphic Design students at the Maine College of Art to produce and display Get Out the Vote posters to be viewed by pedestrians and traffic outside of the library. MECA students were asked to create non partisan messages to encourage voter turnout. There is no single message, although the intent is a call to action, motivating people to register and turn out to vote. The visuals and the text of the message are nonpartisan and are supporting the basic democratic premise of citizen participation – not a partisan position on candidates or issues. This design project is part of a nationwide call for work, organized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts or AIGA.
The posters have been designed by MECA students in Graphic Design and Printmaking classes at MECA.
