Portfolio: Cynthia Mickelson for School Board

When doing work for Cynthia’s first race for School Board, I wanted something that was highly visible and stood out from the pack of “same-old, same-old” of campaign signs. So I designed a logo with sharply defined lettering in a high contrast from a bright, cherry red background that was readily identifiable as a school board contest.

During the race, one snide on-line commenter speculated that it appeared that Cynthia had spent money hiring one of the city’s large professional ad companies to design her logo, which was plastered all over Sioux Falls.  It gave us a good chuckle knowing the truth, that I’d designed the stand-out symbolism for her campaign at a fraction of the cost.
