Making A Protest Sign and Voting!

The Making of a Protest Sign



This is a huge important election year for sure! It feels like the moment we decide to embrace democracy or abandon it. I am hoping for full embrace and progress. Because it’s so important I have been using my visual sensibilities to communicate ideas through signs used at various marches and rallies I have attended. Our engagement matters so I march and most importantly I vote.


Rough concept sketch beginnings

As with any creative project I start in my beloved sketchbooks. Once I get a concept and direction for this sign I created a mini mock up of it out of paper ( postit notes to be exact). I now feel ready to take the next step and have a clear vision of how I’m going to build this.
