Voter Guide

Voter Guide Cover




The idea of designing a voter guide cover that was meant to appeal to 100% of Alabama citizens was daunting. But with research, I landed on the idea of a collage - a surefire way to combine as many things as I wanted on one plane. Black and white allowed for color liberty, and also provided an air of nostalgia and state pride.

Final design

My cover design ties two important parts of Alabama together: places and art. Both parts represent the people – cities and buildings built for the people and art done by Alabama craftsmen in time gone by. The collage is a simple solution to a difficult task, in this case, the joining of an entire state on a single picture plane, to encourage one action: voting. This design shows that no matter where you are from, or near, you can be part of the makeup and the history of Alabama, simply by going out to vote.

It can get messy, and even when I was reaching the end, there were still lots of paths to explore, shown here.
