"2020 marks the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in 1920. It was the first legislation for women’s voting rights. Not until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 were voting rights of all women protected and enforced. The Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote poster campaign, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, invited designers to commemorate the beginning of 100 years of women’s voting rights, and to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2020 election. This campaign aspires to not only support voter participation, but to also serve as a backdrop for dialogue and examination of the history of voting rights and women’s fight for equality."
This poster was creating using letraset to transfer the words vote (in English and Spanish) numerous times to develop this piece. While the final work is digital, all of the component parts were analog.
The typographic imagery can be viewed as an image or read as text. I used multiple typefaces (and languages) to represent an array of female voices. Being the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage, I wanted to emphasize the female form for my piece. Additionally, with all the difficulties of 2020 (the pandemic, economic crisis), I had a bit of fun with the anatomy in relation to the year.
