SHSU Faculty Work Recognized By TED

A poster designed by Assistant Professor Cesar Rivera was recently included in the TED online gallery: Posters that will make you want to go vote. TED, best known for it’s TED Talks lecture series, began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues.

The poster is an adaptation of the Hatch Show Print TYPE poster. The concept of overlaying colors corresponds with ballots piling up in a ballot box and how we all come together to select a candidate. CMYK colors are used from the printing process but are used to represent people from all cultures and socio-economic standings. The condensed typeface represents the traditionally narrow ballot ticket.
