The City of Chicago welcomes designers to the Sustainable Chicago Poster Design Competition: CITY IN A GARDEN. Centered on the belief that graphic design can affect positive change, CITY IN A GARDEN seeks to integrate innovative and compelling design into Chicago’s urban fabric. Winning posters will be displayed on bus shelters and city information panels throughout the city, serving as public art, enhancing daily life in Chicago, and encouraging residents to live more sustainably. CITY IN A GARDEN aims to advance Chicago on its path to being the most livable, competitive and sustainable city.
The goal: To design a powerful, attention-grabbing, memorable poster, incorporating what it means for Chicago to be a sustainable city, bringing the City’s motto “Urbs in horto” (Latin for ‘City in a Garden’) to life. The design should be inspiring, engaging and ultimately, create a call to action for residents to make a difference in our community.[ judges ] Philip Enquist FAIA, is Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s firm-wide leader for Urban Design & Planning.
