This project originally began as a class assignment to be entered in the AIGA Blue Ridge Clash Poster Contest. The theme of the contest was Unity, but my professor added that the "unity" must relate to civil rights. I chose to focus on the right to not be harassed based on sexual orientation.
The main image in this poster was then used in the StaND Against Hate Week at the University of Notre Dame. I created a brand image for StaND Against Hate Week through a logo and color scheme. This was used in a poster and t-shirt. The t-shirts were distributed to students on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 to be worn on the Day of Silence, Friday, April 15, 2011. Then, the main image was added to pins and distributed prior to the Day of Silence in 2012.
