Prior to Election Day, the American Democracy Project asked you to snap and share your democratic spirit on Instagram with the hashtag #ADPelect12. As promised, you can take a look at our Instagrid hashtag gallery of the images captured here.
If you can’t get enough of the electoral and political artistry, we have some other fantastic finds to share with you:
At Fort Hayes State University, the ADP chapter teamed up with a professor of graphic design to host the annual “American Democracy Poster Project.” During the week of October 22nd, posters showcasing graphic design students’ views about current issues and democracy were on display in the student union. There were over 52 posters created. These were then voted on, and the winning poster was displayed after the exhibition. The first-place poster, “I dunno,” was created by Jeanize Cilliers, graphic designer and senior at FHSU; if you are curious about her other designs, click here.
“Get Out the Vote” was a partnership project with the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and the American Democracy Project at the University of Nebraska Kearney. This year, the voting project was a poster competition for the best original individual or team design and voting topic created by UNK students. The poster competition was held at UNK’s Student Union, and some of the posters can be seen here.
Nationally, Rock the Vote’s #WeWill campaign featured photo statements taken from the 2012 Rock the Vote Road Trip that are worth checking out here.
