About this Project
Client: Trust for Public Land (TPL)
Team: Discover Dope (@MycDazzle x @FaithReigns)
Creative Field: Graphic Design, Illustration, Art Direction
Tools: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop
My Discover Dope partner, @FaithReigns and I were commissioned by Trust for Public Land to create a 6' by 12' "The Park is Coming" banner in August of 2017.
The banner's purpose is to celebrate a park that's to be developed on Griggs St in Saint Paul, MN behind Gordon Parks HS, an uber diverse community that's in desperate need of green space; it's a huge win for the people who live there.
I worked at Gordon Parks HS as an Artist in Residence teaching English and coaching basketball and grew up five blocks from the park site, so this project was super close to my heart. I was honored to be a part of it.
