Well, It’s been a few days since the Detroit Design Festival ended. The festival was such an inspiration for me. I enjoyed several exhibits and events and met some fascinating people who were just as excited as I was to see designers doing there thing. I thought that the festival would be a great time to kick-off the Detroit100 Poster Series Contest by hosting a Poster Workshop.
The workshop was simple. Participants came and were given a theme to use to make a poster in 2 hours time. Before the design mêlée, a deep discussion about Detroit and what Detroit means to us as designers gave participants the creative juices to develop some wonderful art.
The workshop attracted twelve people and it was very moving and invigorating to all that came. It was more than a workshop. It was a get together. We laughed, we talked, ate and drank spirits and at the end of it all, we were inspired.
In a couple days, I will share some of the posters that were created from the workshop. I am more than sure that we will hold another workshop/get together soon. Please stay tuned. In the mean time, please click here to participate in the 2011 Detroit100 Poster Series.
