Cooper Hewitt Field Trip

Edcouch-Elsa Fine Arts Center 

edcouch-elsa-fine-arts-center

This building is part of┬áEdcouch-Elsa School District, and is a treasured achievement to the community. The vivid, eye catching design that wraps around the building commands attention. The inspiration behind the striped bands is the sound waves of the high school’s fight song, and the bold colors match the surrounding auto shops. Something that’s interesting about the design of this building is that it can be seen from a distance in all directions. The creator used┬áthis to his advantage by┬ámaking sure the sound wave design could be seen from both sides of the building.

What is Affordable Housing? Toolkit and Rent Regulation Rights Posters

These posters were designed for the Center For Urban Pedagogy. The aim of this company is to educate people in urban communities about social issues by bringing them information in a visual way. The intent of these posters is to explain New York rent stabilization laws to people in China Town in a simple way. This exhibit caught my attention because of the minimalism of the illustrations and bold primary colors. The sleek, clean design allows the reader to see information in an organized, visual and understandable way.

Fresh Moves Mobile Markets

fresh-moves-mobile-markets

This project was created by Fresh Moves Mobile Markets. The goal of this organization is to bring produce to Chicago neighborhoods that lack healthy food. This bus would draw attention to the target market because the designer has made it relatable and bright. The bus is a decommissioned transit bus that has been made into a mobile market. The exterior of the bus makes it memorable because of the striking graffiti lettering and intense use of color.
