asu mlk campaign 2021
the Arizona state university, martin Luther king, jr. committee works with the visual communication design (VCD) program. annually the VCD class aids the committee by designing a campaign. the objective is to celebrate servant leaders and what dr. King stood for. I worked with Laurie MacQueen, Anisa Munoz, and Samantha ray to convey the idea that although we as humans may be different we all deserve the same respect. out of 11 teams, our team was the winning campaign theme which launched in January 2021.

Working with ASU’s branding color palette and designing the university’s first-ever digital campaign. The pandemic had an impact on the launch plans since the events became fully virtual.
We examined Dr. King’s remarks as well as past winning campaigns. We developed the first-ever digital campaign to reach and encourage more people to attend the annual events and oppose injustice. influencing community members, children, poster-essay contest winners, and their parents, teachers, and principals who are invited to the breakfast event.
We began integrating the visuals after selecting the strongest phrase, “race may differ”. We needed a visual representation of the many categories. We chose symbols that related to the emphasis of the asterisk symbol. We designed characters that were distinct enough to be identified but still invoked a sense of mystery.
