This week I’m headed to Denver to speak at an AIGA Colorado event at the Denver Art Museum. In honor of Election Day (which is TOMORROW, but I didn’t need to tell you that), I’ll be speaking about design and civic engagement, and talking about projects like GOOD Ideas for Cities and Street Journalism that can get us away from our desks and out serving our communities. The event is Thursday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m. and you can buy your tickets right here.
In honor of the occasion, AIGA Colorado made this beautiful poster that I think truly epitomizes the ever-evolving Gelatobaby brand (click the image to see it even larger). The poster was designed by Shane Kendrick of E and F Design and printed by Sprint Denver on paper graciously donated by French Paper. It would look great posted at all major gelato-crossing intersections in your home or office.
If you come to the event, you’ll have a chance to win one (hint, hint!) but if you can’t come to the event, I’m giving away one signed poster to one lucky winner. Simply leave a comment here responding to the question below. I’ll pick my favorite response by Thursday afternoon and I’ll drop your poster in the mail by Friday (of course, if you win, and you’re at the event, you can take it home with you).
Denver is an incredible city for walking, so in honor of this pedestrian-friendly place—and so you can help me with part of my presentation—I want to know: What’s your favorite place to walk in your city? Leave a comment below with your thoughts to be entered to win. And be sure to tell me the city as well.
And while we’re speaking of cities and walking, some of the greatest places in the world for walking are in desperate need of our help this week. For every comment posted, I’ll donate $10 to Sandy relief efforts via this awesome wish list program on Amazon that delivers products directly to Staten Island. (Staten Island, as I mentioned last week, was one of my favorite places to walk while researching my architectural tour guidebook to New York City.)
Thank you, and hope to see you in Denver!
