During the Fall 2012 semester, Graphic & Interactive Design students were given the assignment to design a poster for the Temple University Office of Sustainability’s Campaign to Conserve project. This was the project brief:
Temple University has made a long-range commitment to carbon neutrality. In 2012–13, the Office of Sustainability is focusing on an energy conservation campaign, a component of which is to encourage the conservation of electricity. This will impact favorably on the environmental cost to the planet and the financial cost of energy to Temple University. Your assignment is to design a poster for this campaign that promotes electricity conservation to the Temple University community.
Students in Graphic Design 2001 (Sophomores), Typography 3011 (Juniors) and Visual Design Thesis 8095 (MFA candidates) participated in this project. Graphic & Interactive Design faculty selected the pieces to be exhibited. Gavin Cooper and Michelle Cooper, principals of Cooper Graphic Design in Philadelphia, juried the first through third place prizes and honorable mention awards. Kathleen Grady, Director of the Temple University Office of Sustainability, juried the Office of Sustainability Award. The cash awards were generously funded by the Temple University Office of Sustainability and the Hallmark Fund of the Graphic & Interactive Design program.
