Online Poster Making Workshop

Designing to Heal

Poster House and Isometric Studio partnered for a series of virtual poster making workshops. Designers of all ages and skill backgrounds were invited to participate and create posters using whatever digital and physical tools they had available at home.

In the first workshop, we used our time together to create posters of appreciation and support for medical professionals and “essential workers.” These community members are at the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis, but they are not alone in this fight. Designers of all levels shared their work with Poster House and Isometric during the live event, and afterwards through Instagram and Google Forms.

In the second iteration, we created posters about the climate crisis. While most of the world stays home, we’ve seen some heartwarming stories of wildlife returning to areas they haven’t been spotted at in decades and reduction in local air pollution levels—but what will happen when the world starts to reopen? Participants were invited to design posters that draw attention to this urgent issue. Again, designers shared their work with Poster House and Isometric during the live event, and afterwards through Instagram and Google Forms.
