Girlhood Poster Project
Earlier this year we were invited by Emrys Miller to participate in the Graphic Designers of Canada Girlhood Project. My daughter — currently a grade 8 student — created a lovely drawing celebrating the power of imagination, and her poster was presented at the Girlhood launch event on 2 October 2014, along with posters created by seven other Victoria BC designers. The project was Emry’s response to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s Girls exhibition. Plans are for the posters to be printed by Hemlock Printers and distributed to schools and recreation centres around Victoria.
Today the Girlhood posters were featured on the PosterPoster Web site, and a detail from my daughter’s poster was used on the homepage, beneath Milton Glaser’s profile piece (nice!).
