After the tremendous response to the idea for a victory garden to fight global warming, I created a poster, flyer, and tri-fold brochure. I am currently working on a website as well.
The poster is an 11x17 full color poster. The flyer is 8.5x11 black and white (can be photocopied). The brochure is a full-color trifold. These are all available on the website mentioned above.
This was fun to create. Yes, I enjoy using my graphic design powers for good. (I tease my students about having superpowers in design - and the need to choose to use the powers of persuasion for good rather than evil). Please feel free to use these.
Planting a Victory Garden can be such a simple step towards sustainability and easing our dependence upon pollution creating systems.
After contemplation, I changed the tag line to read "for victory over global warming." I had not realized how pervasive the term "fight the war on..." had become. It had become ingrained into my subconscious. I think it shows how hearing a phrase repeatedly seems to become part of the "norm" of our vocabulary.
I think "Victory over.." sounds more hopeful, yet is active enough to engage people who would otherwise not be interested.... And it still could be construed as a fight over something :)
