2022 Inspirational Figures

Inspirational Figures is a poster project supported by the Georgia Institute of Technology’s CoLab as an effort to uplift students and to feel less alone in their own struggles. Students were asked to choose public figures who they themselves found inspiring in order to share those stories with a broader audience. These posters accomplished a few things:

  1. Six total posters that share a themed-layout with a collectible and exhibition look and feel
  2. Diverse representation across the collection where each poster include a modified image of a public figure
  3. A quote from the public figure that highlights their own experience with mental health incorporated into the design 
  4. They each have a vivid/saturated stand alone color that also works with the other posters when viewed as a collection

These posters were professionally printed, framed, mounted and then arranged for various traveling showcases in order for the works to be viewed by a larger audience. They are now housed in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication.
