PosterFest Submissions

AIGA Miami, in collaboration with the Wolfsonian FIU, and in partnership with Lotus House women’s shelter, invited designers to create a poster that helps educate the public in South Florida about the reality that homeless women face. Designers should strive to create compassion, challenge misconceptions, and motivate action around the issues of homelessness, particularly among women.

These twenty-four posters are the submissions from our design community in South Florida. Finalist designs will be displayed on the exterior of the Wolfsonian-FIU on Miami Beach on April 21st during the PosterFest event. The winning designer will be announced that evening and the poster will be used in the public to help raise awareness about the issue.
