AIGA #GetOutTheVote Poster Campaign

Aiga invited again all members to come up with non partisan posters to inspire the public to vote.  Here is my creative process, sketches and studies. You can download this poster here, or check out the other amazing posters here by other aiga members. #aigadesign #GetOutTheVote #aigavote  http://www.aiga.org/vote

Do it great

It doesn't matter if you are creating a sketch for your next painting, planning the next email campaign for your client, coming up for the concept for a packaging.... re-designing a logo, creating a visual identity for a new or existing product ... just do it great.  Give your best, do your best ... with integrity, pour your entire soul, love, passion, effort and creativity. That doesn't mean you are going to please everybody all the time ... but I can guarantee you it will make you happy and your client ... 99% of the time.
