AWP CONFERENCE & BOOKFAIR

The 2019 AWP (Association of Writers & Writing Programs) Conference & Bookfair is a real, but also made up, event that takes place in Portland annually. But for the sake of practicing designing for an event, my fake rendition of the 2019 AWP Conference & Bookfair took place at the LaSell's Stewart Center at Oregon State University.

 

Inspired by a real talk scheduled about our awareness of the existing natural environment around us by Emma Marris, the 2019 faux-conference's theme was The Forest Downtown. For this 'made-up' conference, I created a series of three promotional posters printed on watercolor paper to give it that natural feel, a promotional flag banner, an all-day events schedule poster, a program booklet with a featured article from faux featured speaker Emma Marris,  a promotional tote, and three different conference badges.
