Instagram Takeover: Sarah Wasko

July 6, 2020

Poster House is dedicated to celebrating all voices within the poster community. In an effort to share with our audience the widest array of poster talent, we are partnering with numerous young designers around the world to create Instagram Takeovers—full days on our Instagram account in which up and coming graphic artists give us a personalized peek inside their poster-making world.

Once a month, head to our Instagram to see these amazing contemporary designers. Get special access inside their studios, hear their philosophy on how posters work, peek at their latest poster creations, and ask them questions!

This Monday, we are featuring the designer Sarah Wasko. Wasko is a Georgia-born illustrator, designer, and producer. She began her career in Washington, D.C. where she employed design to correct and combat disinformation in the media. She now focuses her creative efforts on providing creative collateral to movements for queer liberation, sex work decriminalization, prison abolition, and speaking truth to corporate power. She is a queer artist dedicated to learning, unlearning, and using design as a tool in the fight for economic, racial, and social equity. She lives in Brooklyn and received her M.A. in Arts Politics from New York University.
